Welcome and the Chiropractic Lifestyle
A thorough chiropractic examination will be performed.
Most chiropractic offices invite prospective patients to tour the office and meet the doctor, without cost or obligation.
Everything is explained in advance so you can ask questions, understand
what the doctor has found, and what can be done to help you.
Your doctor will review your health history and determine if your
problem is likely to be helped with chiropractic care. If it is, a
thorough examination usually follows. Your reflexes may be tested, your
ability to turn and bend, and other standard orthopedic, neurological,
and chiropractic tests will be conducted. If necessary, X-ray views of
your spine may be taken.
Your doctor will study the results of these examinations and explain
what they mean. Then, the doctor will recommend a care program designed
for your unique health problem.
With a complete understanding of your condition, youíre ready for your
chiropractic adjustment. Adjustments help restore proper spinal and
nervous system function, promoting the healing process. Continued
visits help retrain the supporting muscles and ligaments of your spine.
Periodic examinations will monitor your progress.
More and more people are beginning chiropractic care because they want
a natural approach to health, avoiding addictive drugs or irreversible
After setting an appointment and arriving for your first visit, youíll
enjoy the friendly staff and vibrant atmosphere. After completing some
simple paperwork to help the doctor understand the history of your
health, youíll meet the doctor.
By following their doctorís advice, millions of chiropractic patients have enjoyed relief and better health.
Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and
connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the
joints in your body are part of this musculo-skeletal system and its
optimal function is necessary for overall good health. Ask your Doctor
of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may
include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations,
nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on your
health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.
