Your first visit to a chiropractor at Sound Chiropractic can last up to 45 minutes, and will consist of a thorough history, physical examination and a diagnosis of the chief complaint (reason for the visit). During the history, the Doctor will be engaging you in a conversation that provides information and will help lead towards a diagnosis.
The physical examination will consist of many tests geared toward delivering a proper diagnosis to your area of concern. Components of the physical examination often include procedures such as: range of motion testing, neurological, orthopaedic and functional muscle tests.
After the examination, the Doctor will describe to you what they have found and will provide you with a diagnosis and work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that best suits your needs.
If you haven’t downloaded the initial consult forms, please arrive at the clinic up to 10 minutes early to fill out the paperwork.
A typical visit to our office will usually only last 10 minutes for chiropractic treatment and 30 minutes for acupuncture treatment. We will discuss how you are progressing and any concerns you may have. You will then receive your treatment to achieve your health goals.
