You should be excited about your upcoming first chiropractic appointment here at New York's West Side Comprehensive Chiropractic Care! Your first visit here is a gigantic first step toward a return to pain-free living. The goal of your first visit is for us to get to know you, your health history, your pain complaints, and other things necessary for you and us to work together to create a personalized treatment plan. Here's what to expect on day number one:
Medical history and examination: During your first visit, our chiropractors will ask you about your medical history, including any previous injuries or conditions you may have. They will also perform a physical examination to assess your posture, range of motion, and any areas of pain or discomfort. The examination may include checking your reflexes, muscle strength, and sensation. The chiropractor may also take X-rays, if necessary.
Diagnosis: Based on the information gathered during your medical history and examination, your personal chiropractor will make a diagnosis of your condition and explain it to you in simple terms. They will also discuss with you the treatment options available, and together you will decide on the best course of action.
Treatment: If you decide to proceed with treatment, our chiropractic team will begin with an initial treatment session. This may include manual adjustments, which involve the chiropractor applying a gentle force to the affected joint to restore its proper alignment and function. The chiropractor may also use other techniques such as soft tissue therapy or low-force techniques.
Aftercare: At the end of the first visit, our chiropractor will provide you with aftercare instructions. These may include exercises, stretches, and lifestyle recommendations that will help you to recover quickly and maintain your health. The chiropractor will also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
It's important to note that while chiropractic care is a safe and effective form of healthcare. Every person's condition, wants, and needs are unique, so the treatment plan that will deliver measurable results is a team effort between you the patient and our entire staff here.
