Your First Visit
|What is a chiropractic visit like? Initial visits take approximately 30 minutes for a consultation with the chiropractor and treatment. Visits are very similar to what you might expect at any health clinic.
- There will be some paperwork to fill out regarding your basic personal information, health history and concerns.
- Once in the exam room, your chiropractic doctor will introduce him/herself, review your paperwork and ask further questions about your condition and history.
- After all of this information is gathered, your doctor will provide you with a diagnosis. If your doctor suspects that your problem is not caused by the spine, you may be referred to other health care provider.
- There is an informed consent form to be signed by the patient and chiropractor. Your doctor will discuss the informed consent form with you and request your signature before you continue treatment. Informed consent is about ensuring the patient is clear as to the diagnosis, treatment options and anticipated outcomes of the treatment.
- Lastly, you will be given a treatment plan for the weeks that follow your first treatment. If you follow your treatment plan, you should notice a change in your level of pain or mobility. Your Doctor of Chiropractic will review and discuss what you can expect from your treatment.
