What will happen on my first visit?
This seems to be what most people want to know before seeing a chiropractor, and this is certainly understandable if you’ve never been to a chiropractor before. If you’ve never been to a chiropractor, you probably have several questions and maybe some ideas as to what a chiropractor does. Here’s what will happen on your first visit to our office.
During the initial consultation, you will get to share your current health concerns with Dr. Brock. You can describe how they started, what they feel like, and what types of treatments you have already sought out, what has worked and what has not worked for you.
After hearing about your situation, if Dr. Brock thinks your condition may be helped by chiropractic, he will perform an examination. This will include a postural examination, range of motion tests, and a chiropractic spinal evaluation.
“Will I need X-rays?”
X-rays are not needed for every person or every condition. The need for x-rays will be determined on a case-by-case basis. If after your consultation and examination it is determined that x-rays are needed, x-rays will be taken at that time.
At the end of your first visit, you will be scheduled for a review of the doctor’s findings. This follow up visit is a second consultation in which he will go over the results of your examinations and tests. More importantly, the doctor will also explain exactly if he can help you and how he can help.
All of your treatment and financial options will be explained in detail at this time. Dr. Brock will also be able to answer all of your questions so far. Some of the most frequent questions I am asked at this visit are:
