What to Expect at Your Chiropractor Appointment
Your chiropractic appointment begins with a history of your current condition, overall health and how your symptoms affect your activities. Medicare patients, please be aware that your initial evaluation is not covered by insurance.
Our providers will perform an examination to gain a better understanding of your condition. If necessary, diagnostic testing, such as imaging or lab studies may be ordered. However, research has shown that most back pain does not require imaging.
Your doctor will discuss your treatment options for your condition and work with you to develop a plan. Options may include manual adjustment and manipulation to decrease pain and improve your ability to be active. Your treatment plan involves your direct participation through exercise, lifestyle and ergonomic changes. We will also show you how to prevent future pain and what to do if your pain returns.
Your care will typically involve a series of treatments to facilitate your return to activity and to decrease pain.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care has been shown to be beneficial for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including lower back pain, neck pain and many other spine-related problems. Care may involve hands-on manual therapy or manipulation, in addition to education and advice on lifestyle and activity modifications. The most commonly reported benefits are back pain management, decreased pain and increased tolerance for activity.
Chiropractic care is generally considered safe. Your chiropractor will thoroughly evaluate your condition and discuss any relevant risks that may be associated with care prior to starting treatment.
The risks are low when your treatment is performed by one of our experienced, licensed chiropractic experts.
