At Buller Chiropractic, your examination is geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The procedures used are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. Here is what you should expect when you have a first visit at this office.
Your first interaction in the office will be with a chiropractic assistant, who will gather the information the doctor needs before meeting with you. Following this, one of the doctors will spend time with you one-on-one to discuss your current symptoms and your health goals.
After the consultation, one of the doctors/chiropractic assistants will conduct a thorough spinal exam. With this exam the doctor can determine areas of your spine that may be subluxated. This exam provides a baseline for future re-checks to accurately measure your progress and see how your body is healing.
If necessary, X-rays may be done depending on your condition. X-rays are an important part of the examination process when looking for subluxations in your spine, and provide the information necessary for the type of adjustment that will most benefit your spine.
Your exam and x-ray results will be explained to you and covered in detail at your Report of Findings as soon as the next day. The chiropractic assistant will help schedule your Report of Findings at the end of your first visit.
