Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
Chiropractic History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. Technology called the surface electromyograph may be used to determine areas of stress on your nervous system.
Chiropractic X-ray Studies
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, only very acute patients in a lot of pain will be provided with their first Chiropractic treatment during this same visit. Most patients will be treated on their second visit, after a thorough review of findings and formation of the best plan of action. This may include Chiropractic Adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches or other Chiropractic Techniques.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
in order to achieve the benefits of Chiropractic Care, you will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
