What Can I Expect During My First Visit to a Chiropractor?

chiropractic-visitYou can expect to complete a full medical history questionnaire and "new patient" paperwork. You will then consult with the doctor. This consultation is your opportunity to express your health concerns and expectations, and to ask any questions you may have pertaining to the matter. It is also a time for the doctor to express his role in your health care and discuss your health prognosis. A physical exam will be performed which may include orthopedic testing, reflex assessments and a specific Chiropractic evaluation. In some cases x-rays may be necessary to determine an exact diagnosis. X-rays can usually be done at the doctor' s office. At this point, the doctor will review all of the findings and schedule a follow-up visit (Report of Findings) to discuss treatment options.
