The First Visit for Chiropractic Care

featured-banner_meet-the-doctorWe’ll ask that you first fill out some paperwork to get you in our system. You’ll then be brought back and have vitals taken. Dr. Anderson will come in and speak to you. We’ll do a report of findings to determine when your pain started, where it’s located, and if there are any underlying symptoms that need to be addressed. Here’s what you can expect next:

  • Muscle, orthopedic, and some neurologic testing will be performed. We want to see what’s going on neurologically if there’s some balance disorder. We focus on a person’s balance at the first visit.
  • We will do some palpation of the area to see where the most inflamed areas are.
  • X-rays will be taken if necessary as we want to make sure everything is stable in that segment or if there’s anything we’re concerned about. Afterward, we’ll go over the X-rays.
  • You will have a bit of therapy to relax your spine or to get some mobility into a segment so Dr. Anderson can perform a chiropractic adjustment before you leave.

The Second Visit

Ideally, we’ll see you the next day or the day after that because Dr. Anderson wants to find out how you responded to your first visit. You’ll go right into an adjustment room and will spend a bit of time talking first. We’ll have you go through some motions to see if you have any changes. You’ll be asked how you’re feeling.

Subsequent Visits

After the second and third visit, we’ll have a good gauge of how you’re doing. Dr. Anderson will set up a certain amount of times you’ll see him. It could be once a week, a few times a week or three times a week depending on the severity of your injury.

If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, Dr. Anderson will explain what he’s doing and why at each visit. Expect a great experience at Align Health and Holistic Medical Center! Contact us today to schedule an appointment! Insurance is accepted.
