What can I expect from my visit to a chiropractor?

As a licensed practitioner, it is the duty of your chiropractor to do the following:
  • A thorough review of your specific problem is conducted, including relevant past history and overall health.
  • You will be asked to perform physical tests and movements to help identify the problem.
  • In certain situations, an X-ray may be used to confirm the history and examination findings and to investigate for the presence of any underlying bone conditions or pathological developments.
  • A diagnosis is made, with treatment options for its resolution outlined. If it is, a plan of treatment is communicated. If it is not a chiropractic problem, an appropriate referral is arranged.
  • A prognosis is made, taking into account your general health habits, occupation, stress and activity levels.
  • Your response to treatment is monitored by your chiropractor, who looks for an improvement to your specific condition, as well as for changes in your overall health. Two of the basic components of chiropractic care are wellness and prevention. Utilization of exercises, along with nutrition and lifestyle modifications may also be suggested to improve your overall well-being and promote active, patient-centered care.
