Your First Visit

low back pain relief with chiropractic care

We have outlined what your first visit to our office will be like.

First Chiropractic Visit

1. Brief Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.

*Note: If your condition is related to a motor vehicle accident/personal injury or workers compensation claim, please note that there will be additional forms for you to complete when you arrive.

2. Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems and concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

3. History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination will be performed to determine the nature of your condition, and the appropriate course of treatment.

4. X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

5. Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with a treatment for pain relief. This usually consists of the use of a physiological therapeutics (PT) modality.

6. Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice application instructions, as well as avoidance of certain activities.

7. Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit, generally, the next day. At that time you will be given a complete review of findings, and a detailed treatment plan.
