The initial visit includes completing appropriate paperwork and explaining to the doctor your goals in seeking chiropractic care. The Chiropractic physician will take a detailed history and consultation followed by a chiropractic examination. If further testing, including but not limited to the taking of x-rays, are required the doctor will work with you to refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider. The doctor will then recommend what course of treatment is appropriate for you. At the end of your first visit, you and the doctor will discuss whether further treatment is necessary, and if so, outline an appropriate treatment plan. Some conditions may resolve in one visit, while some require regular chiropractic maintenance care.
