Preparing For Your Chiropractic Visit

Whether you are experiencing back pain, struggling with neck stiffness or just feeling stressed, a chiropractic visit will help ease your symptoms. Your chiropractic visit is going to help you start down the road to healing and better health.  When you are preparing for your first chiropractic visit, there are three things that can help make the process smooth and easy.

Arrive Ready for the Paperwork

Coral Springs Patient Fills out paperwork for Chiropractor

The first appointment at your Coral Springs chiropractor is going to include getting to know you and your medical history. It is going to be hard to treat you without understanding more about what brought you into the clinic in the first place. Make sure you have considered and can tell the doctor things about your physical condition:

  • Medical history
  • Any prior injuries, surgeries or car accidents
  • List of current medications or supplements you are taking
  • Dates for when the pain started, increased or changed
  • Notes on what worsens or alleviates the pain (or makes it change in any way)
  • Specific points on the body where the pain seems to be worst and how far the pain or discomfort radiates
  • Prior experiences at chiropractors or medical diagnosis

Wear Appropriate Clothing for Your Chiropractic Appointment

Choosing loose-fitting clothing is best for your appointment with a chiropractor in Coral Springs. You want to wear something comfortable that allows the doctor to give you a physical assessment and adjustment. You may be asked to remove your shoes, so wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off with socks for your comfort. Layer your clothing if it is chilly outside so that you can wear a thinner material (like a t-shirt) during your appointment. Your doctor will need to be able to feel your spine and muscles in order to discover tension and subluxations.

Try to Schedule a Relaxing DayNew Patient for Chiropractor in Coral Springs recommends to pic a relaxing day

When you are adjusted, it is best to let your body settle into the new position. If your day is tense and stressful around your appointment, you aren’t going to get out of it as much as you could if your day was calm. If possible, try to keep your day relaxing and mildly active. You want to drink plenty of water and avoid any stressors that could cause tension to pull your alignment back out of place. You don’t want to be completely sedentary either, though, since this is also hard on your posture and alignment. After an adjustment, it is normal to feel better and then get slightly sore as your body tries to adjust. You will likely need to see the chiropractor several times in a short timeframe before your body is able to keep the correct alignment and really start to heal.

During your first chiropractic visit at Back to Mind, you will likely be assessed and adjusted. Our chiropractic team can help you by offering a variety of solutions and treatments:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Ultrasound stimulation
  • Electrical muscle stimulation
  • Massage therapy
  • Spinal decompression
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Custom orthotics
