“What will happen on my first visit?”
This seems to be what everyone wants to know before they will even take one step in the door. This is certainly understandable if you’ve never been to see a chiropractor before.
You likely wouldn’t walk into a restaurant without knowing what type of food was served, you wouldn’t walk into a doctor’s office without knowing what to expect.
If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you likely already have a lot of questions and lot of ideas about what a chiropractor does. So let’s talk about what will happen on your very first visit to my office.
During the initial consultation, we’re going to sit down and you will have a chance to tell me all about your health problem. I want to know how it started, what it feels like, what you’ve done about it so far, and what may have worked before… even if it was just temporarily.
If after hearing about your problem it seems that your condition may be helped by our local Mill Creek chiropractic care, I will perform an examination. There have been times where it has been very clear to me following the consultation that my office is simply not the best place for the patient.
I don’t accept patients for care that I don’t believe I can help, so I first evaluate your condition during the consultation and then perform range of motion tests, then chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological examinations.
