What to Expect

Chiropractic First Appointment

During your first visit to see our chiropractor, you will be asked to complete an intake form and answer questions about your health history. This allows our chiropractor to understand your overall health picture. When you meet your chiropractor, she will ask you to elaborate on the reasons for your visit. After a thorough health history is taken, your chiropractor will perform a variety of physical tests to evaluate your problem which will assist her in making a diagnosis.

Physical tests may vary depending on your complaint. Your physical tests will usually include range of motion, posture, joint mobility, and reflexes, as well as, specific tests for your body depending on the nature of your pain and movement restrictions. Following your physical examination, your chiropractor will go over your report of findings where she will explain the findings of the examination and provide a diagnosis.

In some instances, your chiropractor may refer you for further tests, such as x-rays. You may be referred to medical care if it is appropriate. Your chiropractor will recommend a treatment plan including the frequency of visits and after-care instructions, which may include home care exercise/stretch, ice, heat, or rest. Treatment may start on the first visit. The chiropractor will go over the consent form and explain the benefits, risks, and alternative treatments. Your informed consent will be obtained before treatment begins.

  • Deep Tissue: This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
  • Sports massage: This type of massage focuses towards people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
  • Trigger point massage: This type of massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
