What to Expect: First Chiropractic Appointment

If you have not visited a chiropractor you may wonder what is involved in a first visit. A first visit with a chiropractor is often 30 minutes to one hour in duration. The chiropractor will ask about general health history, as well as any history that relates to accidents or injuries.

The chiropractor may or may not use devices to measure neurological function in the spine. The Chiropractor may or may not, use xrays or may ask to see xrays if there have been injuries or if xrays are already available from a visit to a medical doctor.

At a first visit to a chiropractor, the chiropractor will do a physical examination to check range of motion of your neck, back and extremities. He or she will ask various questions during this process and if your have pain, you may be asked when the pain is the worst, or what makes it better.

The chiropractor will decide on a plan of action. Often, initially appointments will be more frequent, especially if there are acute symptoms. Initial visits may be followed by a wellness plan. Discuss this with your Chiropractor. Ask questions, and the chiropractor will be glad to answer your questions. Often people have unnecessary anxieties about an initial visit to a chiropractic office, and often they leave wondering why they had anxiety over it.
