What to Expect on Your First Visit to a Chiropractor
Here’s a short clip from the Canadian Chiropractic Association explaining what your first visit to a chiropractor may look like. Please call our clinic anytime if you have questions about what we do!
“Your first visit to a doctor of chiropractic will be similar in many ways to visiting a medical doctor. You’ll be asked to complete an intake form and answer questions about your health history, so that the chiropractor can understand your overall health picture.
When you meet your chiropractor, you’ll be asked about the reason of your visit, and a physical examination will be undertaken. A variety of physical tests will be conducted to evaluate your problem, and assist the chiropractor in making a diagnosis. These tests may vary depending on the nature of your complaint. Physical tests usually include:
- Evaluating your range of motion
- Your posture
- Joint mobility reflexes
- Examining areas of your body where your feeling pain or restricted movement
Your chiropractor will then explain the findings of the examination and provide a diagnosis. In some cases, additional tests such as x-rays may be required. You may be referred for medical care if it is appropriate.
Your chiropractor will recommend a treatment plan and treatment may start on the first visit. Your conformed consent to treatment will be obtained before treatment begins. Your chiropractic experience may vary from the example demonstrated in this video based on the protocols of individual clinics and your presenting complaint. “
