What to Expect at Your First Visit:
A chiropractic visit is similar to visits at other healthcare offices. Upon completion of the necessary paperwork, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms with you and perform a thorough examination, which may include:
- Case history (history of present illness and past history)
- Physical examination (vital sign checks, weight, height, listen to heart/lungs )
- Chiropractic examination (range of motion or flexibility tests, muscle tone and strength tests, reflexes, )
- Diagnostic tests
- laboratory analyses (as needed)
Once your chiropractor has carefully examined you and assessed all the information you have provided, she/he will discuss a treatment plan and administer your first adjustment.
