Understanding chiropractic care and the processes involved with it can improve your overall experience.

Stresses (physical, chemical or emotional) in or on the body can cause misalignments to the spine and surrounding joints. Misalignments can alter the neurological communication between our brain and our body, causing unpleasant symptoms such as pain, muscle spasm, numbness, tingling, abnormal motion or even organ dysfunction.

Chiropractors move your spine and other joints to get them into better position, this is called manipulation or adjustment. However, chiropractic care includes more than just spinal adjustments. Chiropractic doctors have training in exercise, therapy, nutrition along with bone, joint, and nervous system disorders. Their multifaceted training allows them to properly evaluate you and make the best recommendations on how to get you feeling better as soon as possible.

The three main components to your first visit are the medical history, physical examination and the report of findings.

The medical history allows us to find out exactly what you’re feeling in your own words. Where your complaint is, how severe, how long it has been bothering you and any relevant medical information that may change how we treat you. Think of it as an honest conversation that lets us get an idea as to the root of the problem.

The physical examination allows us to test things like reflexes, range of motion, neurological or orthopedic tests. This helps narrow down the diagnosis and figure out the underlying cause of your symptoms. Depending on our findings we may recommend x-rays.

The report of findings is how we explain to you what you’ve got going on and what the best options for treatment are. It is important that you understand your diagnosis so that you can be compliant with treatment recommendations in order to get the best possible outcome.

The last thing that happens on your first day is treatment. This is where the magic happens! Treatment can vary drastically depending on your condition. We will walk you through and explain everything we are doing in order to help you better understand what is going on and be sure you are comfortable along the way! Our goal is to help you feel your best as fast as possible!
