What to Expect

Dr. Handly and Patient

On your first visit, Dr. Rodney Handly, D.C., will conduct a chiropractic assessment to determine if you have a condition that he expects will respond to chiropractic care.  He will take x-rays or refer you for a specialized evaluation if necessary.  The assessment & future care will be carefully performed & should not be uncomfortable.

If Dr. Handly is willing to accept your case, he will initiate a program of care with your agreement.

Dr. Handly provides a methodical & gentle system of care using the only instrument adjusting technique backed by clinical trials.  His care consists of “Adjustments” to reactivate dysfunctional joints & eliminate nervous system interference enabling your body’s innate healing mechanisms in facilitating optimal function so your body can re-balance & heal.

Chiropractic care is a unique specialized process with each adjustment building on the last, so consistency is important.

Multiple office visits are employed over time so Dr. Handly can monitor your progress & make necessary adjustments as your muscles, ligaments & physiology re-balance. As your care progresses, he will introduce specific home practices to complement your in-office care.

Dr. Handly does not diagnose or treat diseases or symptoms.  His goal is facilitating optimal function by focusing on the underlying causes of your condition arresting its progression.  Keep in mind symptoms have an underlying cause & treating the symptoms alone doesn’t correct the cause & prolongs the underlying condition.  There are treatment options available for symptom relief.  Likely, you have tried many of these approaches already.  These treatments may include, but not limited to: self-administered care, over-the-counter pain relievers, physical measures & rest, medical care with prescription drugs, massage, bracing, injections & surgery.

Once you are stable & holding your adjustments (there is nothing to adjust), Dr. Handly will ask you to consider regular checkup visits to detect & correct small imbalances before they become worse.  Like good nutrition, exercise & dental care, regular chiropractic care supports a natural state of Well-Being.
