Like a Physiotherapist, a Chiropractor would need to get accurate information pertaining to your medical history. If you have already completed tests/ assessments or x-rays for your injury, take these results along with you to the chiropractor. These results will help the chiropractor determine the best course of treatment.

Some questions that a chiropractor will ask you on your first visit

1. On your first visit, your chiropractor may ask about the following:

-personal and family medical history

-major illnesses you have experienced

-surgeries or operations you have had

-medications you are taking

-a description of your present condition

-the steps you have taken to manage your condition

-your diet and exercise

-your sleeping habits, daily activities, work routine, stress level, and home life

2. It is a good idea to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for your visit to the chiropractor. Your chiropractor may ask you to change into a gown to perform some of these tests:

-a check of your blood pressure, pulse and breathing

-a test of your reflexes, strength and sensations

-an analysis of your posture

-an X-ray of your spine

-an analysis of your movement — he/she will observe how you walk, turn, bend or lift things, as well as how your body moves in the affected area

-a hands-on evaluation of how well your spine moves, identifying restrictions and areas of improper motion
