What can I expect when I visit a Chiropractor?

Like any medical professional, you will start by giving a medical history. If any evaluations need to be done such as an X-ray, the Chiropractor might refer you to have that done first. Thereafter a physical examination will be performed, including the relevant diagnostic tests.

Treatment will then follow (see treatments offered), which might include advice given at the end regarding home exercises or ergonomics. A treatment protocol will be discussed as to how many treatments you might need going forward, and how long it will take to recover.

If necessary, you will be referred to another health care professional, as Chiropractors work well with all other health care providers in the best interest of their patients.
