What You Can Expect From Your First Chiropractic Visit

Home » Blog » What You Can Expect From Your First Chiropractic Visit

When visiting a chiropractor for the first time, you may have some initial questions or uncertainties. To help you feel at ease, it is important that you receive the facts and information you need to feel comfortable when you walk into the office. Here is what you can expect from your first chiropractic visit:

First and foremost, you will receive new patient paperwork to complete for the doctor. The paperwork contains confidential patient and health history forms that provide the doctor with general information about your health condition.

Once your forms are completed and assessed, you will have a one-on-one consultation and examination with Dr. Crist. During this time, you can discuss the goals of your health, any issues you may have, prior injuries, and more. This examination may include necessary orthopedic, neurologic, and muscle testing that would be pertinent in your diagnosis. After this exam, any necessary radiological studies would be administered. X-rays typically play a crucial part of getting an accurate assessment of your condition. It is important to ask any questions you have regarding your health and future appointments and discuss all concerns with the doctor.

After the consultation and examination process is complete, the first treatment and therapies will be proposed and you will gain a better understanding of how chiropractic care can help you over time. You will then receive recommendations on how you can increase your health as well as understand the costs associated with it.

If you are planning a first-time visit to Crist Chiropractic & Wellness for a consultation, you can save some time by accessing the patient forms here and have them completed before you come in.
