What to Expect

If you’ve never been to the chiropractor, you may be wondering what to expect at your first visit. Before heading to Back in Balance, we want you to feel completely comfortable. We’re looking forward to your first visit!

Your First Visit to Back in Balance

First things first, Dr. Nicole will meet with you to discuss the reason for your visit. We’ll discuss your history, condition and symptoms. You’ll have ample opportunity to ask any questions, and we’ll be more than happy to explain our process to you.

Then, it’s time for the chiropractic exam. We’ll take a look and feel of your spine and do some general tests, such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and reflexes. We’ll also conduct more specific orthopedic and neurological tests as needed, including X-Rays.

From there, we can work together to decide on a customized treatment plan and clear goals that best fits your lifestyle. We will review your insurance at this time as well. Depending on how much time we spend in the evaluation phase of your appointment, we may or may not have time for your first adjustment.

If you’ve never had an adjustment before, it’s quick and painless! We’ll will push, pull, or twist a section of your body in order to correct any misalignments along your spine and get you Back in Balance. Your joints may make a “pop” sound as they readjust. Many patients report that the realignment “pop” noise corresponds with their instant relief! While your first adjustment may feel bit awkward since you’re not used to getting adjusted, pain is rarely part of the visit.

Have any outstanding questions? If so, please let us know. We are always here to help you!
