Dr. Dwyer is a participating provider with Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Health Care, Aetna, Medicare and various other plans. Please call the office with any questions about your plan.
Dr. Dwyer has studied a variety of chiropractic techniques that differ greatly from one another thus filling a spectrum from subtle, light touch, non force techniques to the high velocity/controlled force techniques that chiropractors are most well known for. He utilizes Torque Release Technique (use of a hand held adjusting instrument), Network Spinal Analysis, (commonly known as Network Chiropractic), and Sacral Occipital Technique (a cranial-sacral approach). He has studied hands on energy healing and soft tissue therapies such as Active Release Technique. Electric stimulation, heat and ice are also used when appropriate. He continues his study of yoga, bringing insights gained into his practice.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
You will have a consultation with Dr. David Dwyer to discuss your health-related problems and concerns as well as potential treatment options. Our goal is to learn more about you, your condition(s) and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care meets your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Dwyer will perform a complete chiropractic examination. He will test your reflexes, test your ability to turn and bend and will perform standard neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical examinations.
We may take x-rays to get a full evaluation of your condition(s). X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Many people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Dwyer will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: Can you help me? What do you recommend that I do to get better? How much is it going to cost? After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any X-rays or tests, Dr. Dwyer will discuss recommendations with you.
Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are in pain, this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions and home exercises and stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, we will work with you to create good habits & routines that support your success.
