What Can I Expect During My First Visit to a Chiropractor?

Your first visit would begin with a full medical history. You will then consult with the Dr. and express your health concerns and expectations. Feel free to ask any questions.
Next a physical exam will be performed which will assess your nerve, muscle and skeletal health. In some cases an out-of-office X-ray will be performed to better assess underlying conditions. The Doctor will go over the results of the exam and X-rays with you. Then, depending on your condition, the doctor will use therapies to promote relaxation of the muscles. The Doctor will then give an adjustment. A chiropractic adjustment is the refined action of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, "locked up," or not moving properly. Adjustments shouldn’t be painful, although you may feel some discomfort until the joint is relieved. Depending on your condition, you and your Doctor will create an individual treatment plan to improve spinal function and overall health. Regular checkups are always a good idea. They promote good health from the inside out.

Which problems can be helped by chiropractic?

Some common problems helped by chiropractic are:
• Low back pain
• Sciatica and leg pain
• Neck problems and whiplash
• Upper back problems
• Shoulder, arm and hand pain
• Migraine and neck related headaches


Many other problems may also be helped by chiropractic treatment. Please email or telephone 952-442-4555 if you would like to discuss your situation.
However, you don't have to wait until your body is telling you that you have a problem - pain is often one of the last signs that your body is not functioning correctly. Many people have chiropractic treatment as a preventive treatment to ensure that your body systems are working optimally. Good health is not simply the absence of pain or disease. The more balanced your body is, the better it will cope with the stresses and strains of your daily life.

Will it hurt?

It is very uncommon for an adjustment to hurt. We use gentle procedures that allows you to relax when being adjusted. However, everyone's body reacts to a stimulus in different ways so there may be some discomfort. Icing the affected area after your treatment should relieve this discomfort.

What is an adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is performed by applying a specific force or thrust in a precise direction to a joint that is not moving normally. This adds movement to the joint, allowing the bones to return to a more normal position. The Doctor of Chiropractic is very skilled in this technique as well as other light-force adjustment techniques. The type of adjustment will vary depending on the condition of the patient.

Can I adjust myself?

It is virtually impossible to adjust yourself because a specific force must be delivered in a very precise direction to a specific joint. It is possible to cause your spine to 'pop' or 'crack' with a bend or a twist, but this type of manipulation not performed by a professional could make an unstable area of the spine more unsteady.

What type of education do Chiropractic doctors get?

Chiropractic doctors are very well educated. They begin training at colleges and universities across the country, and then complete their studies at Chiropractic college. They have the same class hour requirements as a general practice Medical Doctor (M.D.). Chiropractic doctors complete extensive study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, orthopedics, biomechanics, physical diagnosis, radiology, spinal adjusting techniques and related subjects. After graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree, each candidate must pass the National Board Examination and their respective state licensing examination before beginning to practice.
