Your first visit to Alta Vista Chiropractic
If you’re currently suffering from acute or chronic back pain, neck pain, or joint mobility issues, chances are you need chiropractic care. Even if you don’t suffer from acute or chronic aches and pains, chiropractic care is an excellent way to maintain overall wellness.
If you’ve never visited a chiropractor before, your first visit will consist of a thorough consultation and evaluation to determine what type of care you can benefit from. Dr. Bradley will perform a thorough exam to assess your current condition. This may involve palpation of various areas, reflex analysis, posture analysis, range of motion testing, a medical history, and a series of questions to diagnose your condition and determine which treatments are best suited to your unique needs. Dr. Bradley may also refer you out for X-rays or an MRI if she feels it is necessary.
Most patients will receive an adjustment or soft tissue manipulation during their first appointment depending on the results of your exam. As part of your treatment plan, Dr. Bradley will likely give you advice for maintaining the results of your adjustment or take-home exercises to enhance the treatment and improve your range of motion.
Whether you’re new to chiropractic or it’s been years since your last visit, our team at Alta Vista Chiropractic would love to welcome you into our care! At our office, patients always come first. We strive to deliver highly individualized care plans designed to address each patient’s unique needs and goals of treatment.
