Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related goals, concerns, as well as potential options.
History and Examination
In order to determine if chiropractic care in our office can help you reach your health goals, you will talk to the doctor about your overall health, lifestyle and other health concerns. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine what parts of your nervous system are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to order x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective care plan for you. We will discuss this with you if necessary.
Your examination and neuro scans have been completed. The doctor will want to thoroughly study and review your information. Generally, an adjustment is not performed on this first visit.
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 Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Care options for you will also be discussed during this time.
