Examination

We’ll conduct a thorough examination to locate the cause of your problem and formulate your care schedule.

If our consultation suggests that you’d likely be helped with chiropractic care, we’ll need to perform a complete examination. Our patients often comment on how thorough our examination is compared to other practitioners they’ve consulted.

Your first visit takes about one and a half hours, during which you are with the doctor the whole time.  Finding that much free time in the doctor’s schedule sometimes makes this visit a tough one to book.  Please keep in mind that scheduling your first visit may require some flexibility on your part. Visits after that can be scheduled any time during our normal business hours.

Our examination varies based upon what we discover during the evaluation of your health history. What we find will tell us which examinations we need to conduct:
