What to expect on your first visit

A chiropractic visit is similar to other healthcare appointments. After you complete the necessary paperwork, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms with you and perform a thorough examination, which may include:

  • Case history
  • Physical examination (vital sign checks, visual exam, listen to heart, abdomen and lungs)
  • Chiropractic examination (range of motion or flexibility tests, muscle tone and strength tests, reflexes, sports and functionality assessment)
  • Diagnostic tests
  • X-rays
  • laboratory analyses

Once your chiropractor has carefully examined you and assessed all the information you've provided, she/he will discuss a treatment plan and administer your first adjustment.

You may also be provided with information and activities that will help you feel better faster, such as

  • Strengthening and/or stretching exercises
  • Possible posture improvements and/or correction
  • Food and nutrition recommendations
  • Lifestyle suggestions

We want you to feel your best so you can live life to the fullest. Contact us to discuss how chiropractic can help you.
