Northwood Chiropractic & Wellness is a results-driven chiropractic office in Maple Grove. A common question I receive from people who are scheduling a new patient consultation is what should they expect during their first chiropractic visit?
My response is:
- I want to find out why are you experiencing symptoms?
- Where is the root cause?
- Finally, can care with me help?
- I will not adjust or recommend treatment at the first visit. Other offices practice this way; in fact many of my patients are coming from bad experiences at other offices because they made the person feel worse from adjusting on the first day and missed something important by not being detailed.
Having a wealth of information makes it possible to answer these questions. I want to be thorough because I am focused on your spine's health and ultimately your brain's health.
During a first chiropractic visit we perform several exams in 30 minutes:
- Health History
- Posture Exam
- Range of Motion
- Neurological Exam
- Orthopedic Testing
- Functional Assesssment
- Chiropractic Exam
- X-Rays (if needed)
See the X-Ray Suite and listen in as Dr. Greg goes through the importance of your first chiropractic visit; especially the importance of posture
After collecting all this information, I package it together and present it at a Doctor's report of findings at your second appointment. This is where I determine if care is recommended or if I will refer you to a specialist as your back pain is actually coming from something I can't treat for example a fracture.
Every patient who is under care has gone through this process because my focus is not on temporary relief, but on real results. Taking the time to figure this out is well worth it because your health is that important. You should expect the best at your first chiropractic appointment.
