Chiropractors are educated as primary health care providers, so you don’t need a referral from your doctor or any other professional in order to see them.
During your first visit, I will conduct a clinical interview, consisting of a description of the reasons that led you to consult a chiropractor, and a review of your current and past health history.
I will carry out a detailed physical assessment that involves an examination of your posture, orthopedic and neurological tests, and palpation of your joints and muscles. X-rays are not always required but may be recommended where appropriate.
After the interview and examination, I will give you my chiropractic diagnosis. If chiropractic care can help you, I will tell you what treatments I propose, based on your condition, your preferences and your wellness goals.
