Here's some of what to expect at your first chiropractic visit:

Patient History

In preparation of your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to fill out a form that provides background information about your symptoms and condition. You will be asked questions such as:

  • How and when did the pain begin?
  • Where is it located?
  • Is it a result of an injury?
  • What activities/circumstances makes it better or worse?

Chiropractic Physical Examination

A thorough chiropractic examination includes general tests such as blood pressure, pulse rate, and reflexes, as well as specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess:

  • Range of motion of the affected part
  • Muscle tone and strength
  • Neurological function

Depending on your individual needs, further chiropractic tests may be necessary to assess the affected area, (such as having the individual move in a specific manner, posture analysis, or chiropractic manipulation of the affected body part).

Diagnostic Evaluation

Based upon your condition and the results of the history and chiropractic examination, diagnostic studies may be helpful in identifying causes of pain and identifying abnormalities that can be used to more accurately diagnose a condition. Diagnostic studies are not always necessary. The most common diagnostic studies are:

  • X-rays
  • Urinalysis

Diagnosis and treatment

Based upon the results of your consultation, examination, and evaluation, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific injury or condition. Treatment may include chiropractic manipulation, patient education, physiotherapy, and/or strengthening therapy.
