Your first chiropractic visit focuses on identifying the source of your pain or ailment. Therefore, your appointment will begin with a series of questionnaires, after which your chiropractor will perform a physical examination. After this is completed, the chiropractor will examine any areas of the body which you have specified are causing any pain or discomfort.
This process typically calls for an x-ray of the spine, which will give your chiropractor insight to the unique structure of your anatomy. At this point, a chiropractor will perform your first spinal adjustment. This normally takes place on a table specifically designed for chiropractic treatments.
Then, at your second visit, your chiropractor will run you through his or her report of findings. This is when you and your chiropractor will work together to draft an effective treatment plan for your needs.
