What to Expect:

When you come to our office for your initial visit, you will have some brief paperwork to fill out. This will provide us with in-depth information about you and your condition and help us to treat your symptoms better. You also have the option to print and fill out your paperwork ahead of time and then bring the paperwork in for your appointment.

Once your paperwork has been completed, you will meet with the doctor for your personalized consultation. This consultation will provide you with the time to discuss your health-related problems, concerns and best treatment options. It can include:

Medical History & Examination:

The doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition in order to determine what your actual problems may be. A number of specialized Chiropractic, Orthopedic, and Neurological tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected, the extent of your condition, and how best to treat it.

Diagnostic X-Ray Studies:

X-rays may be taken to rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in developing the best treatment plan for your condition. We will generally provide a patient with their first treatment during this same visit once the examination and all appropriate studies are completed.

Home Instructions:

At the conclusion of your visit, you will be given instructions on certain activities you should conduct at home. These activities may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, and home exercises and stretches.

Health Newsletter:

To keep you motivated and up-to-date on the latest treatments and industry progress, each month we feature informative articles relating to health and chiropractic care! You will find information on how chiropractic care can help you lead a healthier and more active lifestyle no matter what age you are.

“Dr. Mankowitz has been a godsend! I was in a serious automobile accident 30 years ago and my body and alignment have never been quite right since. Now that I am older, the aches and pains have caught up to me. I wasn’t able to live the life I wanted to anymore. Dr. M gave me a thorough evaluation and pinpointed the necessary areas for correction. He presented a treatment plan that has gotten me back on track and I am now pain free! His office staff is very pleasant to work with and knowledgeable too. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mankowitz Chiropractic & Massage.”

“Dr. Mankowitz provides the highest quality of care. He relieved my back pain. He is the best in the Sarasota area.”

Steve Leavitt

“I had lower back pain and tingling in my left foot for 40 years. I went to a couple of different chiropractors but had little relief until I met Dr. David Mankowitz. Then my life changed for the better. I call Dr. David Mankowitz my “Thousand Mile Doctor,” because I travel a thousand miles to see him. He is a true professional and kind, honorable man. Doctor David made my life pain free and I give him all the credit.”

David B.

“I have seen various chiropractors with limited success for more than 10 years. After just a few visits with Dr. Mankowtiz, I have experienced dramatic results in mobility, energy, and elimination of pain.”

Edie Kaplan

I went in for treatment with Dr. David Mankowitz and the following morning was FIRST TIME I had not woken up without a headache or jaw pain! Now, I am symptom free and am happy to say that Dr. Mankowitz changed my life forever.”
