What Your Wellness Visit Should Include

A typical checkup visit to your chiropractor should serve four specific purposes. Your chiropractor should evaluate your body, address any pains or other concerns that you may be experiencing, treat any problems that may have arisen as the result of a misalignment and show you how to prevent further injury.

The first two steps are normally performed at the beginning of your visit. Your doctor of chiropractic will observe your movements and ask questions about any discomfort you may be feeling. A quick physical examination will then allow him or her to find out what (if any) physical conditions need to be treated. At this point, your chiropractor will perform a specialized treatment to move your body back into alignment. Finally, your chiropractic team will provide you with the knowledge you need to avoid the risk of injuring or straining your body.

Chiropractic care is a safe, inexpensive and effective way to ensure that your body remains healthy and strong. Contact your chiropractic team today to schedule your wellness visit. There’s no need to wait until you’re in pain before visiting your chiropractor, so schedule your visit today.
