What Can I Expect During My First Visit?
The first visit: getting to know each other and finding the problem:
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 examination 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 exams. Together, we’ll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.
The second visit: Diagnosis, plan, and first treatment:
A second video, shorter than the first, will answer the simple questions almost everyone asks at this point. Your Chiropractor will then go over the results of the exam and X-rays with you. Depending on your condition, your Chiropractor may schedule a series of visits for care. Then, depending on your situation, the doctor may give you an adjustment and/or begin physical therapy, if needed. Adjustments are usually not painful, although you may feel some discomfort until the pressure in the joint is relieved.
