What to Expect on your First Visit
The first important step is recording and evaluation of your
health history. The consultation indicates for both doctor and
patient what options are to be explored.

tests to help us completely understand your condition. To

Upon reflection, most patients readily understand how
previous childhood/adult/athletic injuries may pre-date
present symptoms by months, even years. Chiropractors
know untreated or neglected injuries often caused by body
compensation sets the stage for present complaints. Mindful
of this, you will appreciate the benefits of an in-depth history
and consultation. As indicated, your examination includes all
those physical and neurological test procedures that
authorities recommend to detect spinal misalignment, loss of
function, and physical imbalance. If your case requires a
written medical report for legal or evaluation purposes, please
make this request before the examination.
An x-ray is like a life-size blueprint. When views are
necessary, state-of-the-art equipment and low dosage
techniques are used. We look at more than just disease, and
after this possibility is eliminated, the structure and
alignment (subluxations) are assessed. You are welcome to
bring previous films with you for comparison.
Both experienced and first-time chiropractic patients imagine
the doctor as having a second pair of eyes in his fingers
because he finds all sensitive spots by just feeling
(palpation). While possibly true, what lies beneath surface
tissue can be seen only through x-ray. That's the reason
patients usually insist a confirming x-ray be taken to
accurately detect prior or present skeletal conditions relating
to their problem. Minimum exposure is required to complete
a thorough spinal study, which will be fully explained to
you upon request.
