What should I expect on my first visit?

To gain a complete picture of your overall health, regardless of the focus of the treatment, your chiropractor may ask you a series of detailed questions, something called a history. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal and family medical history
  • Major past illnesses
  • Surgeries/Operations
  • Current/Past medications
  • Your lifestyle (i.e. smoker?/exercise…)
  • Your occupation and leisure
  • Sleeping Habits
  • Much more depending on the circumstances

How do I get started?

Once a course of care is determined, and the matter of informed consent has been discussed, treatment usually begins. Because of my concern for your overall well-being, many treatments may be accompanied by exercise, diet, and other healthy living suggestions to help keep you healthy and strong.

What is an adjustment?

Chiropractic spinal manipulation (A.K.A. an adjustment) is a drug-free, non-invasive manual procedure which utilizes the highly-refined skills developed during four intensive years of chiropractic education.

  • Spinal manipulation, as practiced by trained chiropractors, is a highly controlled procedure, which rarely causes discomfort
  • A chiropractor will modify any procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient
  • Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment

The main goal of the adjustment is: to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints of the body. This can include the spine and any other joint in the body. Poorly moving joints can create a reaction in surrounding tissues, such as ligaments, muscles and nerves, which may result in pain, dysfunction and muscular spasm.

  • A large majority of patients who seek chiropractic care do so for complaints of the musculoskeletal system, most often for conditions affecting the spine (i.e. low back pain)
  • Chiropractors are also highly trained in the recognition of other diseases/disorders that may fall out of their scope of practice. In this way, they diagnose and refer to another more suitable professional
