What's going to happen on the first visit?
Good Chiropractors do everything in their power to help relieve their patient’s back pain or sciatica as fast as possible with as few treatments as necessary. Doctors of Chiropractic also give advice on how to avoid future episodes of back pain. Here’s some of what to expect at the first chiropractic visit, during which the chiropractor will complete a thorough consultation lasting several minutes.
Dr. Heidingsfelder will take a complete medical history and identify problem areas to be addressed during treatment. He will want to know about your pain, if any, where it is located, when the pain started, and what activities improve or exacerbate the pain. Your blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and reflexes may be assessed. Depending on your specific situation, he may refer you for X-rays and/or refer you to have an MRI scan or other diagnostic tests.
The physical examination will generally be performed through light clothing. It may include observation of posture and range of motion and palpation of muscles, joint movement, and soft tissues.
Next, you will be given a diagnosis at what is called the report of findings. At that time I am sure you will have many questions to ask. Feel free to ask anything. Dr. Heidingsfelder will also discuss a treatment plan on how to correct or treat the diagnosed problem. If the problem cannot be treated with chiropractic care, you will be carefully directed to an appropriate provider.
