Chiropractic – First visit
We will take the time to properly assess your condition and answer your questions.
Listen to the patient. They will tell you what is wrong with them.
— Sir William Osler, MD
The purpose of your first visit is to answer the most important questions related to your problem:
- What is the cause of your problem?
- Can our office help you?
- What type of treatments can you expect?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
- How can you prevent the problem from returning?
In order to properly answer these pertinent questions, a thorough consultation and examination will be performed.
Consultation: You will be asked specific questions about how you are feeling as well as your past health history. We want to learn certain details about what you are currently experiencing and discover which factors may have contributed to the problem or may affect the prognosis.
Examination: We will go through a series of posture, range of motion, orthopedic, and neurological tests together. If needed, we may order X-Rays, an MRI or other additional procedures needed to make an accurate diagnosis.
Once the necessary information has been gathered, we will discuss your case with you and answer all of your questions. If we accept you as a patient, treatments may begin.
