What should I expect during my first chiropractic appointment?
Your first chiropractic appointment is similar in many ways to a visit with a medical doctor. After your paperwork has been filed and we have copied your insurance, the doctor will take you back. From there we get a comprehensive history of your current issues as well as healthcare goals. Once this is complete, a chiropractic and functional exam is done to fully evaluate the problem. After this, depending on the issue, there is a small amount of treatment performed for some minor relief that day. During the second visit, we go over all the important findings during your exam, what our recommendations are for care, and get started with full treatment and at-home exercises.
Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?
No, typically a chiropractic adjustment is painless. During our treatments, we utilize several different forms of myofascial release. Typically, this part of treatment is more painful than any other adjustments performed. That being said, everything is done to patient tolerance, and adjustments are not painful for our patients.
