WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR INITIAL CHIROPRACTIC VISIT:

History:

This is the initial step in us working together to better your health. You and I will have a conversation regarding your main complaint as well as other lifestyle factors (exercise, nutrition, etc). 

Physical Examination:

This is the "hands-on" component of the exam.  During the physical exam a series of orthopedic tests will be performed to reproduce symptoms of your main complaint.  This will provide me with objective information on which structures are generating your pain. 

Report of Findings:

The Report of Findings is the educational component of the appointment.  I will diagnose and explain what was identified in the history and physical exam regarding your condition and prescribe a treatment plan.  This education-focused component will enhance your knowledge of your condition and how we can work as a team towards bettering your health!
