  • Manual therapy refers to hands-on techniques used to help assess, diagnose and treat certain ailments.

There are many different types of manual therapy techniques Dr. Singh uses including Maitland, Kaltenborne, McKenzie etc. The type of manual therapy used is dependent on what is the most beneficial for the patient. Dr. Singh will also explain the purpose of each technique and is always open to any questions.

What should I expect during the first visit?

  • When you first arrive at the clinic, have your insurance card and driver’s license available for photocopy. Paperwork will then be given to you to fill out. It is recommended that you come in 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the paperwork.
  • After the paperwork is complete, you will be given a tour of our facility. Dr. Singh will then perform an initial evaluation to help determine causes of symptoms/dysfunction and a treatment plan. The initial evaluation is comprised of the following components:
    • PlanDr. Singh will discuss with you how many visits you will require and how long you should expect to be in therapy to reach maximal function. Together, you will create a schedule that is most convenient for you.
    • Assessment: Dr. Singh will discuss with you the findings of the evaluation and educate you on the sources of the problem. Goals of therapy will be discussed as well has a treatment plan and rehabilitation program. Each treatment usually comprises of manual therapy treatment, one on one with Dr. Singh; an exercise program for the clinic and at home and modalities as necessary.
    • Objective MeasurementsThe Dr. Singh will make observations and take measurements.
      • Postural Assessment: Positions of joints, symmetry and muscle mass are assessed.
      • Range of Motion: Joints will be moved around to see quality and quantity of movement and if there is pain?
      • Strength: The Dr. Singh will check for weakness, pain and quality of muscle contraction.
      • Orthopedic Tests: These are used to confirm or rule out the diagnoses
      • Palpation: Touch is used to determine tenderness, temperature, soft tissue integrity, swelling, sensitivity etc.
      • Neurological Tests: Tests like reflexes, sensation and strength testing may be used to determine if the nerves are being affected or contributing to your symptoms.
    • Subjective: Dr. Singh will discuss with you your medical history; symptoms, problems or complaints; pain intensity, aggravating or easing factors; what activities in your daily life are affected by your complaints/problems; any tests, medications or procedures performed and what your goals are for Dr. Singh.

What should I wear?

  • Loose, comfortable clothing should be worn so that the areas being assessed are easily exposed for examination. Comfortable shoes are also recommended. Gowns are also available for your convenience.

How long will each treatment last?

  • Each treatment lasts for 30-45 minutes and involves one-on-one manual therapy treatment with Dr. Singh, therapeutic exercise performed at the clinic to ensure proper mechanics and techniques and usually ends with modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, ice or heat pack. It is important to perform home exercises as prescribed by Dr. Singh outside of the clinic.

Will I have to exercise?

  • Therapeutic exercise is a very important component of your rehabilitation program. Compliance with a home exercise program will facilitate recovery, makes changes from therapy more permanent and help prevent risk of re-injury. The exercises always performed at the clinic first before it is prescribed for your home program to make sure it is done correctly. A hand out will be given with diagrams to help you remember your home program.

Will I see Dr. Singh every time?

  • We prefer that you see Dr. Singh for each visit so that he can follow you through the full course of treatment and be the primary contact for communication with other health care providers including your medical doctor. On occasion, you may see another doctor if there is a conflict in schedules.

Do I need to see my primary doctor before I see Dr. Singh?

  • No, you do not have to do that.

How many visits will I need?

  • The number of visits is dependent on the individual, the diagnosis, the severity of symptoms, medical history, prior level of function etc and can range from a few visits to a few months. Dr. Singh will discuss with you how many visits you will require and how long you should expect to be in therapy to reach maximal function.

How much will I have to pay for a visit to Dr. Singh?

  • The amount paid out of pocket depends on individual insurance plans and coverage. We will gladly verify your insurance and explain your benefits and financial responsibility before your first visit. For those patients without coverage options, discounted cash rates are available, and vary depending on diagnosis and treatment.

Chiropractic/Physical Therapy Questions

  • What is Chiropractic?
    • Chiropractic is the science, art & philosophy of locating & correcting vertebral subluxations through gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments thus allowing your body to function at its optimum potential.
  • What is a subluxation?
    • A misalignment of one or more of your spine bones (vertebrae) which causes interference to your nervous system. If your nervous is interfered with, your body’s natural ability to heal itself & function at its optimum potential becomes impaired. A subluxation is a perfect example of how structure in your body.
  • What is an adjustment?
    • A gentle, specific “thrust” delivered by hand or instrument. The purpose of the adjustment is to correct your spinal subluxation(s) thus removing the nerve interference in your body.
  • Does it hurt to get adjusted?
    • No. A chiropractic adjustment feels great. Once you allow the vertebrae in your spine to return to their normal position, you will notice much less stress and tension.
  • Is chiropractic/Physical Therapy care safe?
    • Yes. Statistics prove that chiropractic care is one of the safest types of healthcare in the world. You only need to compare the malpractice premiums paid by chiropractors to those paid by medical doctors. Doctors of chiropractic only pay a small fraction (approx 1/20) of the price medical doctors pay in malpractice premiums. 250,000 people will die this year as a result of bad medicine, making this the third leading cause of death in the United States of America (The Journal of the American Medical Association JAMA: Vol.284, July 26. 2006). Of the millions of people receiving chiropractic adjustments, each year, only a handful will even make a complaint.
  • Is it bad to “crack” your back and neck a lot?
    • This question is frequently asked question because people associated the “cracking” or “popping” of one’s back with a chiropractic adjustment. The two are not the same thing. If a person has a desire to “crack” his/her neck or back, it is often because one area of their spine is fixated or jammed causing another area to move too much and “pop”, sometimes by it self. It’s the fixated or jammed area that needs to be properly adjusted by a chiropractor so that the other parts of the spine will not be hypermobile and noisy. When you crack your back, you may be relieving the tension for a little while. Do you notice how it keeps coming back? That is because you are not giving yourself a specific chiropractic adjustment. The cause of the spinal tension, the fixed or jammed (subluxed) vertebrae, has not been corrected. Any person who makes a habit out of “cracking” or “popping” their back and neck needs to go to a Doctor of Chiropractic to have the spine checked. Even a chiropractor cannot adjust him/herself.
  • Once you see a chiropractor/Physical Therapist, do you have to go for the rest of your life?
    • No. The extent to which you choose to benefit from your chiropractic care is ultimately up to you. Each & every one of us is solely responsible for the quality of our health & well-being. However, we do strongly urge all practice members to consider lifetime, wellness chiropractic care. This is where the long-term lasting benefits of care are enjoyed. Regular exercise & healthy eating habits are a lifestyle decision and so is lifetime wellness and chiropractic care.
