A lot of people are not sure what to expect on their first visit to the chiropractor. The following explains what would happen on a typical first visit in our office. We welcome questions, so please call us if you want or need any further explanation of your first visit to our office. See you soon!
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about you and a brief medical history, so the doctor may better understand where you may have bones out of place in your spine. You may print and fill out the paperwork ahead of time by going to the Patients>Forms tab.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the case manager and Dr. Smith to discuss your health-related problems and concerns.
In order to determine what your problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, Dr. Smith will check your posture on bi-lateral weight scales and take digital pictures of your posture. This is performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in developing the most effective wellness plan for you.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, you will be scheduled to return to receive a comprehensive report of findings. Generally speaking, patients are usually seen within 1-2 days of their first visit. Correction plans and your investment options for your condition will also be discussed on this visit.
