Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a physical evaluation and most likely take a few x-rays to see what your current state is. Once this is complete, we'll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the evaluation.
A patient will have a follow up visit which includes a report of finding, care plan and adjustment. Each following visit will include assessment of each area of the spine and adjustments accordingly.
