Your first visit will last approximately 45 minutes. The doctor will talk to you about your current and past health concerns. Then he or she will do an exam. In the exam the doctor will be looking for areas where your body has not been able to heal and areas where there is good healing potential. The exam will focus on how well you can move, how well your nerves communicate and where you have pain or other discomfort.
You may be asked to remove your shoes, but otherwise will stay fully clothed during the entire exam. Women are encouraged not to wear a tight fitting skirt during the exam. However, you may wear a loose skirt, jeans or any other clothing.
Most people also receive their first treatment (called an “adjustment”) on their first visit. Unless the doctors find a serious medical concern or some other extenuating circumstance, you will be adjusted on the first visit. This adjustment is very light touch and will last approximately 5 to 15 minutes.
