New Patients

New patients can be seen immediately at Italia Chiropractic Health Center!

In our professional, laid-back atmosphere, our friendly, bilingual team (English and Spanish) is ready to welcome you. We look forward to discovering how we can help you!

The First Visit

The necessary paperwork can be found online and brought in completed, along with your insurance card. You’ll then meet Dr. Italia in a private examination room to discuss your medical history. We’ll begin with a thorough examination including orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic testing to determine a diagnosis. If further tests are necessary, such as X-rays, CT scans or MRIs, we’ll get those ordered for you.

Dr. Italia will determine a treatment plan that’s right for you, explaining what we’re doing and why. Your treatment begins on this day. When you leave, you can schedule for additional sessions. This appointment takes about an hour.

Your next appointments are quicker, taking 20-30 minutes. Dr. Italia will go over home programs for stretching and strengthening. He’ll talk to you at each session about aspects of a healthy lifestyle and other advice.

You’ll have regular re-evaluations to ensure that we’re meeting your changing needs as treatment progresses.

Your care at Italia Chiropractic Health Center depends on you – your health history, current complaint and what’s most appropriate for you. If you sought our help for a simple wrist sprain and don’t have a medical history of problems, then continuing on a preventative care plan may not be necessary. If you present with more significant issues, however, such as high blood pressure, we may discuss the importance of preventative care with you.

There are two different ways to go about treatment:

  • A disease-based model. You seek help when you’re not feeling well, stopping treatment when you feel better.
  • A preventative model. We fix the problem you have, then make sure it doesn’t return with continued care, taking simple steps to make sure you stay healthy.

You can choose the right path for you depending on your beliefs. We’re here to help in any capacity that you need us!

The techniques used by chiropractors have been around for thousands of years and are completely safe. Dr. Italia will walk you through each step of treatment before starting. We’ll explain each part to you, easing you into care and only starting when you feel ready. With about 30 years of experience, Dr. Italia has gained a unique understanding of how to position you so that we can give you an extremely gentle adjustment.

Wellness Programs

In this day and age, insurance coverage often involves high deductibles and copays. Some people have told us that they would like to become patients, but can’t afford to pay when their insurance doesn’t cover care. For this reason, we’ve created cash-based wellness plans that are more affordable than dealing with difficult insurance companies. You can choose the plan that fits your budget, getting the care you need.

Contact us today to find out more! Same-day appointments are available.
