Dr. Manuel Compas, DC

Chiropractor

Professional statement

Dr. Compas was inspired by a chiropractor during his high school years when he was a student/athlete. He ended up at the chiropractor’s office after suffering from a neck injury while playing football; attempting to tackle his opponent head on which caused a mild sprain/strain injury. During his visit, he was extremely nervous because he had no idea at the time what a chiropractor did. He was referred to a chiropractor by a physical therapy group. He had no idea what to expect. After the initial physical exam, Dr. Compas and the chiropractor engaged in some small talk which lead to a very important question. The chiropractor asked Dr. Compas what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Dr. Compas told him that he wanted to become a professional football player, and if that didn't happen he would become a physical therapist to work with athletes. The chiropractor smiled and asked him if he ever thought about becoming a chiropractor. Dr. Compas responded no, because he didn't know anything about chiropractic. The chiropractor then explained to Dr.Compas that chiropractors are spine doctor's who specialize in muscular-skeletal injuries as well as many other conditions. What really captured Dr. Compas' interest was when the chiropractor told him that he was a chiropractor for the Canadian Olympic Team. Dr. Compas knew right away that he wanted to become a chiropractor if the NFL didn't come knocking on his door.

Dr. Compas was great. He was patient while I tried to explain my history and concerns and he was very insightful all throughout the visit. He explained each action prior to taking it and he helped me understand a bit moreabout the mechanics of my body. I had been leery of chiropractors prior to today's visit, but I'm sold now.

Although the toggle button allows you to rate your wait time... It doesn't allow you to say how long you waited. I waited 50 minutes so I would have rated that option as a 2 because there as no acknowledgement ofthe wait. My time matters to me and felt like I was expected to be ok with such a long wait. Everything else was good though.

Dr. Compas always makes me feel 100 times better! He listens well and is gentle during manipulations. He always take the time to relax your muscles before doing any manipulations and spends time giving you exercises to do so that you issues don't become permanent ones.

This man was really awesome he listens to everything you say then takes time to consider it and physically locate symptoms before drawing conclusions and is very logical. I saw him once so far and am feeling a difference, he saysI should only need to see him a few more times to notice a permanent resolution and he showed me excercises to do that help. Awesome dr
