What Can I Expect At McCormick Chiropractic?
Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain, and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition, and goals.
Your First Chiropractic Visit Includes:
Health History – As with any doctor’s visit, you’ll start by filling out new patient paperwork. Your Health Resume tells us about your current complaints and your history of injuries or illnesses.
Consultations – We will review your health resume and take a further history of spinal impacts, including auto accidents, work, recreational, and sports injuries, along with the details of your current work and daily activities.
Clinical Examination – Your examination will include a center of gravity assessment, a thorough evaluation of posture, spinal palpation, and range of motion. These tests will help determine if subluxations are affecting your health and function.
X-Rays and Analysis– We will perform a physical examination and most likely take a few x-rays to see what your current state is. Once this is complete, we’ll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we’ll come up with a plan of action that will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.
