At your first Chiropractic visit, your Chiropractor will review your medical history and do a physical evaluation. Depending on your diagnosis or symptoms, your Chiropractic Doctor may evaluate your flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, posture, and/or heart rate and respiration. Your Doctor may look at how you walk or get up from lying down (functional activities), along with how you use and position your body as you perform activities (body mechanics). The Chiropractor will work with you to decide on your goals for therapy and to begin planning your treatment. Sometimes we may need some x-rays or an MRI so you may or may not begin your actual therapy during the first visit, but usually Dr. Mike likes to begin therapy in the first day to start getting you some relief from your symptoms.
