The first visit is to assess whether chiropractic can help. Before providing treatment , we must first perform a thorough examination of your condition. If we feel that we can not help you, we will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist or other professional. A chiropractor may proceed with a variety of methods to determine the spinal segments that require chiropractic care, including a static motion palpation techniques determining spinal segments that are hypo mobile (restricted in their movement) or fixated. Depending on the results of the above examination, a chiropractor may use additional diagnostic tests.
The most important part of your exam is the initial consultation, that is to say the ANAMNESIS . A good doctor will take the time to listen carefully your story and check your medical history . We will go through all of your symptoms and discuss what improves or aggravates your condition and determine what you have done to date and what remains to be done.
