First Visit to Chiropractic Office
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a chiropractic consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential chiropractic treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the chiropractor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized chiropractic tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
If you require x-rays or any other diagnostic testing, we will refer you to one of the local facilities that we work with.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the chiropractic examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first chiropractic treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Chiropractic Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, chiropractic patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Chiropractic treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
