What to Expect from your First Chiropractic Appointment
For those new to chiropractic care, it is common to have questions and even concerns regarding starting a new treatment plan. Your initial visit will give your chiropractor a good look into your medical history and what you will be treated for – this first visit also gives you a great chance to ask questions and really take control of your health care plan. You should never leave a visit feeling confused or unsure.
The First Visit
Your first visit will likely be the longest visit you have. This initial consultation will give you and the chiropractor a chance to start a great therapeutic relationship and really get a handle on your goals going into treatment. Your chiropractor will do a full examination, sometimes including tests and radiographs, will come up with a diagnoses and treatment plan for you.
Once you have an established diagnosis and treatment plan, you will be scheduled in to come in for follow up treatments. The frequency of these visits will have been established at your initial consultation, and are usually very quick – treatment, plus time for any questions or concerns you may have.
Going to the chiropractor for the first time can be concerning, especially if you have no idea what to expect. Take charge of your health by having your questions and concerns ready to go for your chiropractor, and be sure to share any past medical issues you may have had. You might be surprised what your chiropractor can help with!
