If you’re visiting with us for the first time, we’d like you to know exactly what to expect. We want to provide you with a great experience, and will make sure that you feel welcome and supported every step of the way. When you call to make your first appointment, a second visit “report of findings” appointment will also be made at that time to ensure availability. We also ask that you download and complete your new patient paperwork before meeting with us. Our chiropractic office has been described as “an oasis of relaxation, emotional nourishment and loving-kindness”– we hope you think so, too! Please email the completed form to us or print it and bring it to your first appointment.
Who We Help
We have a reputation for excellence in optimizing health and function, and minimizing discomfort and lack of vitality. Most people are aware of the many benefits of chiropractic care, but here are some of the issues that we excel in:
Many of our practice members suffer from lack of movement during their workday, such as advertising executives, insurance professionals, general office workers and computer specialists. The strain of sitting at a desk all day often gives birth to a unique set of symptoms that affect the neck, upper back and shoulder area, including pain, poor range of motion, numbness and stiffness.
Although headaches are common, they are not normal. We see great results with those suffering from tension, stress and cluster headaches, as well as migraines.
Many of our practice members may visit us for a different reason to start, but after receiving regular adjustments with us, they notice an improvement in their quality of sleep.
Joint Pain & Muscle Aches
Whether you’re dealing with age related muscle and joint pains or an injury that isn’t healing properly, our team can help get you back on track when it comes to living a normal, pain free life.
When you’re dealing with sciatic nerve pain, chiropractic care can be focused to target the nerve and release tight muscles and pressure, resulting in less pain for you.
Find yourself falling ill frequently? Chiropractic care works to balance your nervous system, which can play a big role in how well your immune system functions. When your nervous system is free of disturbances, you may notice heightened immunity.
Dr. Metz holds certification in Advanced Neurofunctional Sports Performance. Combined with specific chiropractic treatment, we can help those seeking to recover from injury, as well as assisting those looking for maximum sports achievement and execution.
We have a solid reputation for excellence in the treatment of shoulder discomfort and lack of mobility. We’ve found that the combination of skillful chiropractic care combined with high-tech neurofunctional acupuncture bring about successful resolutions.
Did you know that we offer care for pregnant women? Instead of dealing with the pains and strains that often come with pregnancy, we can help your body and pelvis remain balanced every step of the way. Many women notice an improvement in labor and delivery when under chiropractic care.
Your First Visit
Your first appointment will take between 45 and 60 minutes. When you arrive, you’ll be warmly greeted by our assistant, Shahreen Jahan, who will escort you to one of our comfortable practice rooms. Shahreen will then introduce you to Dr. Metz, who will conduct an in-depth consultation and health history to fully understand your concerns and collect all information pertinent to the state of your health.
You’ll then be asked to put on a gown, and Dr. Metz will conduct a functional evaluation and neurological examination to assess spinal mobility, including blocked areas of nerve transmission and restricted range of motion. Shahreen will be present for this part of your appointment to take notes. If we feel it necessary, we may also write a requisition at this time for full spinal X-rays.
Your Second Visit
This second visit will also take between 45 and 60 minutes. Dr. Metz will explain her findings from the initial consultation & examination and thoroughly review your x-ray results if x-rays were taken. Once she has answered all of your questions, customized care options will be discussed, and consideration given to a plan of management that will fit your needs.
Regular visits are much shorter than your initial two appointments, and you can expect to be in the office for about 15 minutes. When you arrive for your adjustment, you’ll be asked to sign in and give us some brief feedback on the state of your progress. You’ll then be assigned a private room to relax in before your adjustment. Following your session with Dr. Metz, you’ll again be invited to relax for a few minutes before carrying on with your day.
Will Insurance Cover My Care?
Your work benefits may pay for a portion of your care. It’s helpful to look at these limited benefits as a “coupon” toward your needs. Unfortunately, most workplace insurance does not cover all costs for care required to optimize your health and increase your function, and we’re fully aware of this deficiency. The good news is that we’re very transparent when it comes to financial concerns, and we’ll be very clear in helping you to understand all costs related to your care. We’re here to help!
Our chiropractic office is patient-centered and accommodating. Our staff is seasoned and professional and our practice members appreciate our attention to detail. We’d love to partner with you in helping you to feel great.
