At Twin Cities Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we provide tailored treatment based on your specific needs and concerns. If you’re in need of a car accident chiropractor, we offer a wide variety of treatments including spinal adjustments to relieve pain naturally and help heal the damaged area. Our chiropractor for neck and back pain may use spinal decompression or advise you on lifestyle changes you can make to improve your condition. But if you've never seen a chiropractor before, you may wonder what you can expect at your first visit. 

 

Medical Background 

The first portion of your initial visit with us will consist of you filling out paperwork related to your medical history and any concerns you may have. This information allows us to incorporate your medical history into your treatment plan. A chiropractor will also sit down and speak with you regarding your concerns in order to gain a complete understanding of your condition. 

 

Our chiropractor will then be able to devise a plan that's safe and ideal for you. We'll ask you about your diet and lifestyle in order to determine if either of these play a role in your condition. Our chiropractor will discuss a course of action and timeframe with you. During this time, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have.  

 

Examination 

The second step of your visit is comprised of an examination by our chiropractor. Our chiropractor will take a close look at the area where you have pain or discomfort. The goal of this examination is to determine your range of motion, strength, and function in the area. Our chiropractor evaluates your nerve response during your examination. We possess imaging equipment that we may use to see your joint formation. It helps our chiropractor to identify any musculoskeletal issues you might have. We might need to conduct further testing in some cases.  

 

Treatments Your Chiropractor May Use

Your chiropractor may give you a treatment during your first visit. For instance, our chiropractor may conduct a spinal alignment to reduce your pain and help with motion. The treatment consists of a chiropractor realigning the spine using manual maneuvers. This takes pressure off of the discs in between the vertebrae. This allows the discs to heal more effectively. Not to mention, blood will circulate more efficiently throughout the area, which has the potential to enhance the recovery process. The treatment also relieves any pressure the discs may place on the nearby nerves. It's beneficial for those who have neck or back pain. People who have migraines can benefit from a spinal alignment as well.  

 

Spinal decompression is another treatment your chiropractor for neck and back pain may recommend or even perform on your first visit. The treatment consists of you lying on a table that utilizes a motorized device to stretch the spine. It relieves pressure on the discs in the spine.   

 

Your treatment plan will be developed specifically for you, so the methods used may vary depending on your needs. If you have any questions about your treatment plan, please don’t hesitate to ask!
