Initial Assessment Chiropractic Care

An initial assessment is used to assess and diagnose the problem(s) at hand, and to determine the best course of treatment. The doctor will carefully examine your medical history as well as provide a thorough physical examination to assess your specific needs.

Initial Assessment

This physical exam may include, but is not limited to:

  • Orthopedic assessment
  • Neurological assessment
  • Range of motion assessment
  • Postural assessement

During this time, you may also wish to ask questions or discuss your concerns with the doctor. After determining a diagnosis and treatment plan, the chiropractor will usually begin treatment the same day. While some find immediate relief, the number of sessions you will need varies by condition and severity.
