Upon arrival for your first visit you will be asked to complete the necessary paperwork to help the doctor understand the history of your health. Next you will meet with the doctor, who will review your health history and determine if your problem is likely to be helped with chiropractic care. Doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient. A thorough examination will follow your consultation with the doctor. If necessary, x-ray views of your spine may be taken. Your doctor will study the results of these examinations and explain what they mean. Then, the doctor will recommend a care program designed for your unique problem.
