The pain has finally gotten to the point that you can’t ignore it anymore, and after an exhaustive search through and researching the cost, you’re ready for your first visit to your new chiropractor in Tampa, FL.

What should you expect? First off, it’s completely normal to be a little nervous and apprehensive. Many people still think of chiropractors as “new age” doctors and can’t imagine how cracking someone’s back can actually help them get better.

All you have to do is show up, and Dr. Mohr has a knack for putting you at ease right away. Let go of any preconceived notions you may have had and just come in with an open mind.

After your first adjustment, you’ll be glad you did and probably start singing the praises of chiropractors to all of your friends that are constantly complaining about neck and back pain too.

When you walk into the office and sign in, be prepared to meet the doctor and go back right on time. I’ve personally been several times now, and there is never a long wait like I’ve experienced at other chiropractors and many doctor’s offices in general.

Dr. Mohr will walk you to the back room, and the first thing you will notice is the amazing view of the lake that the entire building is overlooking.

You will be asked several questions about your pain: Where is it? What bothers it most? When does it hurt?

This part of your appointment is vital for both you and the doctor in understanding the location and cause of the pain, as well as the best way to treat it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the interaction here and genuine interest from Dr. Mohr as he comes up with a treatment plan based on your input.

You won’t feel like just another number getting rushed in and out to make room for the next one, which is increasingly common in hospitals and doctor’s offices.

Your first adjustment may be a little jarring at first if you’ve never experienced one, but that cracking you hear is a good thing, and you’ll begin to feel the positive effects before you make it out of the building.

As you walk out taller and feeling better, Dr. Mohr will recommend a good time for your next appointment, and you will be well on your way to recovery.
