You may have heard about someone suffering from back pain, or heard about it through an advertisement. However, if you are one of those afflicted with such pain, a chiropractor can help in relieving these aches and suffering. First of all, chiropractic care focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, the nervous system and the effects of these disorders on the overall general health. At Ageonics Medical, our chiropractors treat not only neuro-musculoskeletal issues, but also back pain, neck pain, pain in arms and legs joints as well as headaches. We also use a drug-free, hands-on approach to help cure our patients with patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Our NYC chiropractors have broad skills, and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises. Let’s look at the main things to expect on your first visit with our chiropractor.
What to Expect
After your first adjustment, you may experience mild soreness or aching, which should be gone within a day or two after your chiropractic treatment. If you suffer from lower back pain, our chiropractor may use the main form of treatment. If there are other medical conditions, they may complement or support the medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal issues that may be associated with your condition. Our chiropractors can provide much needed pain relief through a therapy plan that is tailored according to your needs.
When you first visit a chiropractor, you will have to fill out a medical questionnaire asking about your health history. Our NYC chiropractor will ask you questions about your pain and discomfort, and eventually find out where the pain is. This would be a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have, and our chiropractors will do their best to answer them for you.
Your first visit to the chiropractor will involve a routine exam, which involves an x-ray of your spine. This will help us find the subluxations that are causing the pain. We may even ask you to act out different motion tests of different ranges, which will help us in deciding which adjustment will be made during the treatment.
In addition, after one of our chiropractors decides on a course of action, there will be some adjustments to your spine as well as other joints in the body. This may include elbows, wrists, ankles, and the shoulders if needed. You will be lying down on a chiropractic table for the adjustments, or you might be sitting or standing. If you are not able to handle the manual adjustments, we can use a low-force adjustment technique. We will recommend you to do different stretches and small adjustments that you can do at home after the exam. It is important to remember that this not a quick fix for your pain and discomfort, but you will need to book a follow up appointment.
