What to Expect
Your first visit will consist of some paperwork, so we can get an idea of the full breadth of your complaints and how it has affected your work and life. You may download and print the paperwork at home by clicking here.
Once we have the appropriate papers filled out, we will sit and discuss the details. What makes it worse or better and so on. When you feel the worst and perhaps why etc. Once we have a good idea of the nature and impact of your problem, we will perform an examination to find out what structures are involved (muscles, joints, discs) and to what degree. At this time we may recommend x-rays be taken to help in forming a diagnosis.
The first visit can be summed up by stating the goals of your first experience:
- Understand you and your problem as much as possible.
- Evaluate you to see if your problem can be helped by chiropractic or not.
- Begin to relieve your pain/resolve your problem as quickly, safely, and affordably as we can.
During your visit all fees will be discussed in advance and financial policies explained in writing to make sure there are no surprises. You should allow approximately 90 minutes for your first visit to our office. Naturally, future visits will be shorter.
