What to Expect at Musacchio Chiropractic of Matthews


Welcome to our Matthews chiropractic clinic!

When you first give us a call you’ll most likely hear Kerry’s happy voice on the phone and smiling face at our front desk when you arrive. We’re always happy to talk to you and help you in any way we can. Whether you have questions about insurance or want to know more about us, we’re here to help.

We know what it’s like to be new and how nice it is to know what to expect ahead of time, so here’s a preview of what it’s like to be a part of our patient-family.

Shall We Get Started?

We look forward to meeting you, putting your paperwork together and giving you a tour of our office at your first visit. Then, you’ll meet Dr. Joe Musacchio for your consultation. He’ll use this time to find out more about your history, your health goals and about your health concern.

This is followed by a physical examination to test your body’s strengths and weaknesses and identify the source of pain. If you require an X-ray, we’ll go ahead and take one here.

We‘ll schedule a follow-up visit within a couple of days or a time that is convenient to you. Generally we don’t adjust on the first visit, unless you are in severe pain. Why? We’d like to go over your X-rays, findings and exam thoroughly before we begin care.

Your first visit may last up to an hour.

Follow-up visit

We use the start of this visit to report on our findings from the examination and X-ray. We’ll explain the problem and the cause of your pain to you. Then, we’ll share a game plan to help. Feel free to ask as many questions as you can think of. The more you know, the better you can deal with the problem and the faster you’ll heal.

Once you agree with the plan, Dr. Joe will adjust you as required. Based on the treatment plan we’ll schedule subsequent appointments. We’ll also send you some exercises to do at home to help strengthen your weaker muscles and to help you heal faster.

The whole visit will take between thirty and forty-five minutes.

Subsequent visits

Your regular visits will primarily be for adjustments. Dr. Joe will give you advice on eating right, exercising and rehabilitation and answer any questions you have. Why? “Because our ultimate goal is to see you thrive. We want to see you live the best life possible, and we’ll do all that we can to help you achieve that.”

Get back to doing whatever you used to do. These visits will last twenty minutes or less.

Wellness Visits | It’s Up To You

They’re happy with the results of their chiropractic care and choose to come to us on a regular basis to stay well. “Our patients find visiting us more effective than feeling sick and then coming back to us.”

“We take care of you for as long as you’d like to come for chiropractic care. We are eagerly looking forward to one of our patient’s hundredth birthday. Regardless of your choice, know that we’re here for you!”
