What to Expect at Your First Visit
Have you settled for less than optimal health, and learned to just ‘deal with pain’ as part of your life? Our society has come to accept less than optimal health in exchange for our busy, more stressful, faster paced life. Our mission at Herner Chiropractic is to provide the highest standard of chiropractic care to our patients and our community.
During your initial consultation, a thorough history and a physical examination will be conducted to identify your specific condition. The physical examination may include various orthopedic and neurologic tests. Information about your medical history will also be reviewed. During this time, the doctor will identify what structures ( ie. muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves, discs) are involved. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may also order further tests to help identify the cause of your problem. These tests may include x-rays, MRIs, CT scan, nerve function test, ultrasound or blood work. The doctor will review these findings and form a treatment plan, tailored to your specific condition and goals. If your condition requires assessment by another specialist, a referral will be made.
