What to Expect

New York Chiropractor What To Expect

Welcome to our office!

Dr. Belmonte and the team at East 53rd St Chiropractic and Wellness are committed to providing you the tools you need to change your health for the better.

When you arrive at our office, you’ll enter a calming, spa-like environment. With a soft color palette and a quiet, Zen-like feel, you’ll be able to feel the stress of your day start to melt away.

We consider ourselves somewhat of a “boutique practice.” We maintain a low volume of patients to keep wait times down and provide you with personalized, one-on-one attention.

Getting Acquainted

Once you’ve made the decision to begin chiropractic care, contact our office to secure your first appointment. Our new patient forms are available online, so you can complete them in the privacy of your home at a time that works for you. Completing your forms in advance means you and Dr. Belmonte will have more time during your appointment to discuss your history and your treatment goals.

Your First Visit

During your first appointment, you’ll meet with Dr. Belmonte for your consultation, and he will take a detailed medical history. At this time, he’ll also review your forms and any past imaging (X-rays or MRIs) that you may have had.

Once Dr. Belmonte has a good understanding of your history and your goals for your care, he’ll conduct a thorough chiropractic exam. If necessary, he’ll refer you for X-rays to help gain additional information about your current condition.

If you are experiencing acute pain, Dr. Belmonte may perform an adjustment during this visit. More commonly, he will evaluate all of the information he’s gathered during this visit to develop your longer-term treatment plan prior to forming an adjustment.

Overall, you can expect to spend 45-60 minutes with us for this first appointment.

Returning for Your Follow Up

After your first visit, Dr. Belmonte carefully considers all the information he’s gathered and develops your personalized plan for your chiropractic care. These plans typically have definitive start and end dates, rather than being left open-ended.

At your second visit, Dr. Belmonte will review your plan with you and will perform your first adjustment.

Over the course of your treatment plan, Dr. Belmonte will share with you a wealth of information about self-care, nutrition and other aspects of the lifestyle change required to maintain your good health. He’ll also send you WebExercises®, photos and videos that will demonstrate healing and strengthening exercises specific to your concerns. These photos and videos will show you the proper form you’ll need to help you get the most benefit from the exercises.

Although you’ll be receiving a lot of valuable information, Dr. Belmonte breaks it all down into small, manageable chunks to keep it from being overwhelming and make it easier for you to implement in your day-to-day life.

Your future visits will be considerably shorter, usually lasting only the few minutes it takes for Dr. Belmonte to perform your adjustment. Your time is valuable, so we do our best to help you receive your treatment and get back to your day.

Your good health is our top priority! Contact us today to get started with your personalized plan.
