We Go the Extra Mile
An Insight Into Your Experience with Us
What to expect on your first visit
Each initial assessment will take 45-60 minutes in duration, and will consist of a history, physical examination, a report of findings with a diagnosis, and a treatment. The chiropractor will begin by asking you a set of questions to get to know you, your health and your current complaints. The chiropractor will then put you through a set of ranges of motion, orthopaedic tests and a neurological exam, all to determine the cause of your pain. The chiropractor will communicate to you what they have found and their diagnosis, plan of management and prognosis for the condition. Lastly, they will begin their plan of management with a treatment, that may consist of an adjustment, some manual muscle work, acupuncture, or a combination of those.
For your first visit it would be preferable that the patient wears clothes that allows the problem area to be clearly examined. Also to save time in the clinic, the patient can fill out the initial intake forms found at the bottom of this page. In the case where those are not filled out before the appointment, it is recommended that the patient arrives 15 minutes early to fill those out. If the patient has any prior imaging studies (X-ray, MRI, CT, etc.) they are encouraged to bring them in along with any other diagnostic test results.
Our chiropractors love answering any questions you have about anything we have discussed with you on your initial visit or subsequent visits, so do not hesitate to ask!
