What should I expect during my initial consultation?
Your first visit to a chiropractor includes a thorough consultation to assess your current condition and determine which treatments are best suited to your unique needs. During this appointment, you can expect:
A thorough chiropractic exam. This may involve x-rays, palpation of various areas, reflex analysis, posture analysis, range of motion testing, a medical history, and a series of questions to diagnose your condition and determine your needs. Other types of diagnostic testing may also be included in this exam.
An initial treatment. Depending on the results of your exam, you may receive an adjustment during your first or second appointment.
Take-home advice. As part of your treatment plan, we will likely give you advice for maintaining the results of your adjustment or take-home instructions to enhance the treatment and improve your range of motion.

How many visits will I need to feel better?
The number of chiropractic care visits you’ll need to improve your condition and alleviate discomfort is highly individual. Your chiropractor will develop a comprehensive care plan for you after your initial visit, which details the number and frequency of treatments you’ll need.
Periodic wellness treatments can also be highly beneficial both for identifying and addressing emerging issues and keeping mobility and other functional impairments at bay and bring it with you.
We're looking forward to seeing you!
