What to expect on your first visit to the Chiropractor
There is a bit of anxiousness in going to the Chiropractor Boca Raton. This is normal and should be embraced and nothing to be ashamed of. Here we’ll touch on what to expect from your first chiropractic visit. This should put your mind at ease a bit.
Treat it like a doctor visit
But not one where you think there is something wrong with you. Treat it like you are a healthy human being going for a physical. That is what it’s going to be initially anyway.
What the initial consultation will be
You can have a consultation on the same day as you do your adjustment but you don’t have to. The consultation achieves this. You will see if the chiropractor resonated with you and you are comfortable. You will also be asked questions such as why you want adjustments and what you are trying to achieve with them. Then, you’ll give them a medical history just as you would a medical doctor. You will then have your appointment or make one for a later time. You’ll have to figure out who is going to cover it or maybe you had a referral from another doctor. This will also be covered in your consultation
You’ll be looked over and depending on the office you’ll have some vitals taken. During the visit your muscle tone, reflexes, strength and neurology as it pertains to the affected site is tested. Some questions will be asked about any injury you may have. You may also be subject to some lab test and possibly MRI or x ray. This is to give the chiropractor a good idea of what’s going on in the affected area.
Now, if you don’t have an injury you can go to the chiropractor and receive great benefit from it being a healthy person. You’ll be kept flexible and have total stress reduction of the joints and muscles. It works your musculoskeletal system in a way that is a therapy to the whole body. You never realize how tense your muscles are or how many nerves are pinched and trapped until you have an adjustment. It’s like a massage for the bones!
If you’ve never had an appointment before there is no harm in getting a consultation and find out if this is a good fit for you.
