What’s the First Visit Like?
You can expect to spend 30 to 45 minutes at your first chiropractic visit, though the length of the initial appointment depends on the nature of your injury or condition. Typically, the way an initial visit proceeds will include the following points:
- Identifying the health condition you’re facing.
- Getting to know you and your needs.
- Develop a treatment plan that fits your individual needs.
Our qualified team will ask you to clearly describe your pain in terms of the type of pain you’re feeling (shooting, aching, tingling, etc.), the severity level, and the location of the pain or discomfort.
We will also want you to complete paperwork about your medical history. Treatment might be aided by knowing your family’s medical history, pre-existing diseases, and other health-related facts.
The Chiropractic Examination
Your reflexes, joints, hip flexors, spine, neck, and posture will all be checked. To test your range of motion, you may need to rotate your body in different directions. To help diagnose the problem, we may press on certain locations and ask if it causes pain.
