During your first appointment the chiropractor will do a thorough intake in which he will discuss your health history and symptoms and he will make the relationship between your symptoms and the possible stress factors in your life. You will have a physical examination in which the emphasis is on functionality and not just on where it is painful. A posture photo of you will be taken to determine your posture and show how this is linked to your health. Take your BSN and health insurance number to the first consultation and put on comfortable clothing.
