What can I expect during my first visit?
When you come to our office for your first visit you can expect to complete a full medical history questionnaire and “new patient” paperwork.
You will then consult with Dr. Christensen. This consultation is your opportunity to discuss your health concerns and past health history with Dr. Christensen.
A physical exam will be performed which may include orthopedic testing, reflex assessments, muscle testing, and a specific chiropractic evaluation. X-rays may be necessary to determine an exact diagnosis. X-rays can be done right at the office. In order to have time to give your case a thorough study, Dr. Christensen will go over the results of the exam and x-rays with you on the next visit.
Then, depending on your situation, Dr. Christensen may give you an adjustment and/or begin therapy, if needed. Adjustments should not be painful, although you may feel some discomfort until the pressure in the joint is relieved.
Dr. Christensen will discuss with you what the recommended care will be for you moving forward, depending on your condition.
