Have you experienced a visit to a Chiropractor? It’s very new for many of us so the first visit is really about getting to know your chiropractor, the support staff, learning about the healing process and taking the first steps towards your wellness. As with any visit to the doctor, you’ll start by providing detailed information of your health history on the new patient form. When you meet the doctor you’ll be discussing your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. Dr. MacAskill and Lindsay will perform a physical examination and will take X-rays to see what your current state of health is. This all happens on your first visit.
X-rays are taken at the first visit to give Dr. MacAskill an inside view of what is going on with the bone structure of the entire spine and surrounding skeletal structure. This will give an accurate view of the condition of your spine.
Once this is completed, there will be two more visits scheduled to discuss your condition. The second visit into the office is informative. You will watch a video and have time with Dr. MacAskill to review your specific exam and x-ray findings. Usually an adjustment is performed this day to determine how mobile your spine is.
The third visit is the next step on your wellness journey. At this visit, Dr. MacAskill will review your specific treatment recommendations. This is where you can ask even more questions that you’ve thought of since your second visit. We are here to help you and want to make this as easy as possible so you can begin the healing process. At the end of this visit, another adjustment will be performed to continue the momentum of your spinal and postural correction.
