The Doc Is In!
We appreciate our patient's participation for the safety of all, especially those with compromised health and immune issues. We take the safety of our patients most seriously and therefore have a mandatory mask usage for everyone when in our office. We have placed a new air purifier, instituted sanitary protocols and, by design, maintain a low volume practice. Hand sanitizer is available , as well as extra masks, as needed. Since we typically schedule one person per hour, there is no need for patients to spend long amounts of their visit in our reception area. Our patients are separated from one another as we continue social distancing.
We have used the *Activator Method for many years with great success! This method is painless and appropriate for all ages and is also very helpful in sensitive or smaller areas, such as TMJ.
The Activator Method employs the use of a small, hand-held instrument which gently delivers a specific and targeted thrust. This action does not require torque or twist to the joint being adjusted. The instrument releases precise pulses delivered in a specific direction for the purpose of restoring motion to effected areas responsible for causing a patient's symptoms.
* The Activator Method is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with 23 clinical trials to support its efficacy. Activator Methods has published hundreds of clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, worked with major academic research institutions, and received grants from recognized entities like the National Institutes of Health. - activator.com/research
"We typically allow 60 minutes for each recovery and wellness visit, and this timing is by design. During each office visit I endeavor to give ample time to fully care for and support my patient's recovery and wellness. It is my goal to deliver thorough care during every visit. I have found that if I combine an adjustment along with attention to muscle and extremity issues, our patients can often recover more completely and quickly, thereby moving toward wellness-care more effectively."

Your initial visit to our office begins with a review of your individual health history and answers to any and all questions you may have. You will receive a thorough initial examination, which gives us insight to your current health condition(s).
Dr. Mascali will go through all the results of your exam with you and offer his impressions and any recommendations for care. Unless further diagnostics or referrals are needed, your first chiropractic adjustment - using the gentle *Activator Method - is typically given just after your exam.
We allow 90 minutes for your first visit to our office, making sure you have all your questions answered, your examination and treatment given and explained, as well as follow-up recommendations considered. You may find your New Patient Paperwork on the FORMS page.
