What To Expect At Your First Visit
Many new patients may not be sure what to expect during their first appointment at Spine Wellness Center. Our providers start by taking a patient’s history and then performing a comprehensive physical examination to develop a working diagnosis. Imaging or lab tests (such as MRI, CT scan or X-ray) may be used to confirm a diagnosis.
The combination of the history, exam, and diagnostic studies will enable our providers to reach a diagnosis, which will help determine whether chiropractic services are appropriate for your condition. If it is determined that you would be more appropriately managed by another health care professional, our providers will make the proper referral.
Through a process of shared decision-making, you and the providers at Spine Wellness Center will determine if chiropractic services are right for you. As part of this process, your therapist will explain your condition, recommend a treatment plan, and review the risks and benefits of all procedures.
Based on the extent, timing or severity of the patient’s condition, chiropractic interventions may require several visits. Patients may also receive advice on home care, lifestyle modifications, exercise instruction, and nutritional advice.
