What Can I Expect During My First And Second Visit to a Chiropractor?
Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
As with any doctor’s visit, you’ll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you’ll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a physical examination and most likely take a few x-rays to see what your current state is. Once this is complete, we’ll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we’ll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.
Upon entering the office there will be paper work which we will ask you to complete.This information is required by your insurance company and helps us to get your claims paid in a timely fashion.
Once the paper work is complete you will sit down with the doctor, there he will ask you a series of questions so as to determine the appropriate type of care for you.
The examination enables the doctor to obtain additional information about your problem. If you are not a chiropractic candidate you will be referred to the appropriate doctor.
ALL NEW PATIENTS WILL BE REQUIRED X-RAYS PRIOR TO TREATMENT
On the return visit the doctor will explain your findings and explain your treatment plan so as to correct your problem
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your chiropractic care.
