At Dr. Stana Djurdjevic & Associates, chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and physical, the chiropractor can diagnose a patient. The chiropractor can then develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercises and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. The chiropractor can also work with other health care providers to obtain additional diagnostic tests if needed, and recommend further therapies within the clinic and outside the clinic.

A Chiropractic treatment is also performed on the first visit, unless further diagnostic tests are needed. The typical chiropractic initial assessment takes between 40 and 60 minutes.
The majority of Chiropractic patients who come to Dr. Stana Djurdjevic & Associates do not require x-rays to have their conditions treated effectively. X-rays are occasionally ordered by a Chiropractor in order to rule out serious conditions.
