This is where you tell us your story, what happened, where it hurts, were the pain is etc. Your first visit is designed for the chiropractor to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine how chiropractic care will help you meet your goals.
After your inital consultation (which is Free), the chiropractor will perform a complete chiropractic examination. In this examination the doctor will test your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. The chiropractor will also perform a health history. This examination with help us to objectively evaluate all the involved tissues (bones, muscles, joints and neurology etc.) in order to determine the most accurate diagnosis possible.
Your specific condition may require us to order x-rays or other imaging studies. the purpose of these studies is to fully understand your problem. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions and assist us in developing effective treatment plans. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their own misalignment and degeneration themselves.
