Blog: Your First Chiropractic Visit

If you suffer from back pain, neck pain, headaches or joint pain in the arms and legs, a chiropractor may be able to help. We use our extensive diagnostic skills and a drug-free approach to help restore the body’s mobility. During your first consultation we ask about your complete medical history and your current symptoms. The physical exam includes tests for muscle strength, flexibility, range of motion and neurological damage. Chiropractors may also use medical imaging such as X-rays or MRIs to diagnose a patient’s condition. We then use gentle manipulation and adjustments to treat the cause of your symptoms. Chiropractic care is often the primary method of treatment, and it can also complement treatments that are prescribed by medical doctors. We also refer patients to other healthcare providers when a different approach is needed. To make an appointment with a Centegra primary care chiropractor, call (815) 338-6600.
