Your First Visit
If you're a first-time visitor at North Hills Chiropractic, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances. Please anticipate your first appointment to be 45 minutes to an hour.
A bit of paperwork
We will need to fill out forms that provide general information about you and your condition. Our staff is happy to assist you with the paperwork. Please bring your current insurance card and ID with you the day of your appointment.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
X-rays are not required. After reviewing your history and performing an examination, the doctor may need x-rays taken. We will refer you out to have x-rays taken.
Patients will generally undergo their first treatment on their first visit after the examination is completed. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the process. We work our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit for a follow up. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
