Be very excited, this is the experience that will bring you closer to good health. You will be greeted by a friendly, courteous staff that will take your important medical information and will guide you through our office. Your doctor will speak with you about your specific complaint and will take thorough notes on your medical history. Please bring any pertinent information such as MRI reports or X-rays. A thorough examination will be performed to help diagnose your condition. X-rays may be taken to help rule out aggravating factors. When needed, other diagnostic tests may be ordered.
Once your doctor has reviewed the radiographs and their exam findings, you will be given a full report of what can be done to ensure the improvement of your condition.
If your chiropractor feels chiropractic will help you, then a treatment plan will be given. Treatment will be given in an individualized manner and will be tailored to your specific needs. This will consist of specific chiropractic adjusting to get you moving pain-free again. Complimenting your adjustment, any number of physiotherapeutic modalities, massage techniques, or home care recommendations may be given.
Your first visit usually takes anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Arriving fifteen minutes early for paperwork will help to ensure a low wait time to meet your doctor.
