Chiropractors specialize in treating the musculoskeletal system, specifically the spine. If you are getting ready for your first chiropractic visits, then there are a few ways in which you can prepare for your visit.

Call the office.

When you’re scheduled to see a chiropractor, give the office a call 2 days before to confirm the time and date of your visit. When you make this call, take this time to ask the staff if there is anything in particular that you should bring or wear, and in what ways you might be able to get ready for the treatment that you will be receiving.

Prepare your information.

If it’s your first time visiting this chiropractor, then there is some information that you should have readied in advance. Collect any documents regarding your medical history, and be prepared to answer any questions about your current state of health. Also, gather information regarding any medications or supplements that you’re taking. Finally, be sure to have your payment and insurance information ready before you head to your appointment.

Consider your symptoms.

During your initial chiropractic visits, your chiropractor will ask you questions regarding the pain or discomfort that you are experiencing. To make it easier for him to diagnose and treat your condition, think about where you experience the pain, how and when it began, and if it resulted from an injury. Also, consider whether particular activities or positions make it better or worse, if the pain is continuous or comes and goes, and if it feels like a throbbing, aching, or sharp pain.

Know what to expect.

For a chiropractic exam, you can expect to undergo neurological and orthopedic tests to examine your neurological integrity, muscle tone, muscle strength, and range of motion. Additionally, you can anticipate having your respiration, reflexes, and blood pressure checked, as well.
