- 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.
