What To Expect From Your First Chiropractor Visit at Emkiro
When you come to Emkiro’s chiropractic clinic for the first time, you will receive a one-on-one consultation with one of our Doctors of Chiropractic. Your chiropractor will ask you questions regarding your health history, your work and lifestyle, as well as your main area of concern.
Following this, your chiropractor will conduct a physical examination including an assessment of your spine and posture. They will assess your condition and may ask you to perform certain movements to see if the painful areas in your body are moving optimally or not. Your chiropractor may also perform and/or recommend other diagnostic tests to identify the problem and identify the root cause.
If your chiropractor decides that no further diagnostic tests are needed, they will explain the recommended treatment process for your condition and answer any questions before beginning your first chiropractic treatment. Your first visit at Emkiro typically lasts between 40 to 60 minutes.
