What to Expect at My Chiropractic Appointment?
What you should expect on your first chiropractic visit.
Your first appointment will start with a thorough history, to fully understand your current complaint. After the history is complete the session will transition into the examination portion of the visit. This is where our practitioner will discover what is truly causing your issue. We use a system that separates the most common causes of pain into 3 categories: muscle, joint and positional problems.
This is a vastly oversimplified view, but it makes it easy for you to comprehend where the true cause of your problem is coming from; muscle, joint, or position. Once you and your provider have determine the root of your problem the session will move into the treatment portion.
We use multiple different techniques to resolve common pains. Depending on what you and your provider discover in the examination, you may decide to use chiropractic joint manipulation (adjustments), myofascial release techniques, active release techniques, or therapeutic exercise.
After the session is complete there may be recommendations for at-home exercise, lifestyle modifications, and follow-up treatments.
