Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a physical examination and Dr. Dilo may refer you to get x-rays or other advanced imaging studies to see what your current state is (not usually). Once this is complete, we'll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we'll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward. Once a diagnosis has been made, Doctor will correct any Vertebral Subluxation you may have by using various spinal adjustment techniques. Doctor will also relieve any muscle aches, spasm, or stiffness using Ultrasound Therapy, Myofascial Release, or Neuromuscular Re-education techniques. Therapeutic Exercise or Activities may also be prescribed for certain conditions.
