Your First Chiropractic Visit
By coming to our office, you are taking a first exciting step toward better health. Chiropractic care is different. It offers new ways to get well and stay well. You'll meet the doctor after filling out some brief paperwork describing you, your health history and goals. We offer this initial consultation so we can both get to know one another.
Then we will give you a thorough examination to study the way you move and bend, helping us locate area of your spine that could be the cause of your problem. We'll study the results and give you a complete report of our findings along with a recommended program of treatment. With a plan in place, future visits will take just minutes. The purpose of these visits will be to locate and reduce your vertebral subluxations and monitor the healing process.
X-rays can be helpful to confirm our findings and make your care more precise. After completing the exam, we will tell you if they are needed.
You may wonder how long it will take until you feel better. Some patients feel almost instant relief and others may take more time. Every patient recovers at his or her own pace. Factors which can affect the healing process include your age, your overall health condition, muscle tone and diet. It is important to follow your recommended treatment plan to give your body the help it needs to get well and stay well!
