Your Clinical History
Your chiropractor may be treating your muscle or joint pain, but he needs to understand how your body functions as a whole. In particular he will focus on your spine, joints, muscles, and nervous system. Your chiropractor needs a complete picture of your health history and overall current health in order to provide the best possible treatment for you.
You may be asked about the following:
personal and family medical history
surgeries or operations
prescription or over the counter medications
a description of your present condition
steps you have taken to manage your condition
diet and exercise routine
herbal remedies and other supplements
your sleeping habits, daily activities, work routine, stress level, and home life.
During a thorough physical, your chiropractor will:
check your blood pressure, pulse, and breathing
test your reflexes, strength, and sensations
assess your posture
perform various orthopaedic tests
analyze your overall movement – through observing how you walk, turn, bend or lift things
evaluation of how well your spine moves, identifying restrictions and areas of improper motion
Your First Treatment
Once you have filled out the required paperwork, your condition has been explained to you in full, and the risks and benefits of treatment discussed; treatment can commence.
