What to expect
The doctor will meet with you and discuss your specific complaint and take thorough notes on your medical history. Please bring any pertinent information such as recent MRI reports, X-rays, and a list of current medications to the consultation.
You will be given a thorough orthopedic and neurological exam, that will allow us to diagnose your condition. X-rays may be taken to highlight and rule out any aggravating factors. When needed, outside consultation with imaging facilities or lab work may be ordered. Posture assessment and functional movement screening is part of the examination.
Report of Findings
The doctor will review your exam and X-ray findings with you near the end of the visit. If he feels chiropractic care will help you, a treatment plan will be given. Most acute conditions respond in a few weeks, however, it may require regular visits for chronic conditions.
Your treatment plan will be given specific to your condition - individualized for you. This may consist of specific chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine and return you to pain free movement. Complementing your adjustment, any number of physiotherapeutic modalities, massage techniques, or home care recommendations will be given. Your first visit usually takes anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Subsequent treatment visits usually last less than 30 minutes.
