When a new patient first comes to Star Chiropractic and Nutrition, what he or she needs most will determine how Dr. Suzan Starler, D.C. first proceeds. Some patients come in specifically for a nutritional consult. Some patients come in specifically for a chiropractic consult. Sometimes what is truly needed is not what they came in for, and at that point we switch gears. Nothing is written in stone. If a new patient comes in with the complaint of neck pain or low back pain, for example, that particular complaint may be due to something structural or it may be due to a chemical or physiologic imbalance. No two individuals are the same.
The exam, assessment and analysis received is unique for each person. After the initial consultation, Dr. Suzan will recommend a course of treatment which is specific for your needs . Many program recommendations are multi-faceted – and may include chiropractic care and/or neurologic rehabilitation, combined with home exercises, dietary suggestions , and lifestyle modifications. Dr. Suzan wants to make sure that you get the care that you need, and that you have as much information as possible in order to make an informed, educated decision regarding that care. Most patients who adhere to their programs have positive changes within the first four to six weeks (some longer, some sooner). The choice, ultimately, is yours. The better you adhere to your program, the better your results.
