Your First Appointment at Cornerstone Chiropractic for Chronic Pain: What to Expect

Going to a new doctor for the first time can make anyone nervous, and going to a new type of a doctor can be even more nerve-racking. What should you expect? These questions and more are probably running through your mind.

Fortunately, there is no need to fear your first visit to our chiropractor. We provide this information so that you know what to expect before you ever walk in the door. This will make it so that actually entering the office is a peaceful and confidence-inspiring step toward good health.

Filling Out Forms

New patients need to fill out many forms upon going to a doctor for the first time. Typically, one form will be for the basics, such as your name and address. Another form will have you list any medical conditions that you know you have, whether or not you’re suffering from chronic pain if you have allergies and similar information. Another may ask about your current physical problems.

The Chiropractic Exam

A chiropractic exam will include steps like testing the range of motion of the affected body part, checking for muscle tone and strength, and testing your neurological responses. You may be asked to move in specific ways or have your posture analyzed. In some cases, some chiropractic manipulation may be done.

Diagnostic Studies

Depending on your observed condition, non-invasive diagnostic tests may be needed to pin down the diagnosis. In chiropractic medicine, imaging – X-rays, MRI scans, and CT scans – are the most common studies that are done. These will help determine whether or not chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition.

At the End of the Visit

Now, you will receive your diagnosis and the doctor’s recommendations for treatment. This will include the type of treatment, the schedule, and how long it should continue.
