Your First Visit

Dr. Richard K. Skala is a specialist in those conditions which have not responded to prior medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, or other approaches.

Any new experience, especially when it comes to your health, can be unnerving. We understand this might also apply to patients who are new to chiropractic and we will make every effort to make your first experience very comfortable.

Our friendly staff and Dr. Richard K. Skala will be happy to answer all questions you might have about chiropractic or our approach to non-surgical, non-invasive medical care, and we will address any concerns that you may have. We schedule your first visit to allow you 30 minutes prior to seeing the doctor to complete the necessary forms and paperwork. We recommend that for your first appointment you arrive thirty minutes early to complete the required paperwork. A complete health history is the first step for any new chiropractic patient. We will ask about old injuries, chronic problems, and your current symptoms. 

  • What are your sensitive or painful areas? 
  • When did the pain start? 
  • What caused the pain?

In addition, Dr. Richard K. Skala might inquire about your family history, dietary habits, job or work habits, and previous treatments for the current condition (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.). After reviewing the health history, he will discuss his findings with you and determine how your condition could best be treated. If Dr. Richard K. Skala feels chiropractic will help you, then he will recommend a treatment plan, or if applicable, discuss a choice of treatment options with you.

Dr. Richard K. Skala will tailor a treatment program to your needs, addressing your specific chiropractic health problems and personal concerns. Aside from adjustments, other therapeutic methods, massage techniques, or home care remedies may be recommended.

Dr. Richard K. Skala has helped thousands of patients with many health problems, some of which are listed here. We have a variety of treatment options available, allowing us to chose the best treatment method for you. Our goal is to remove your aches and pains as quickly as possible and exceed your expectations on your way to better health.
