What should I expect on my first chiropractic visit?

A first time chiropractic visit can be a scary prospect, but it doesn’t need to be.  At The Joint, the process is incredibly easy and quick.  We recommend coming in any time up until about half an hour before closing time, so that you have time to do your initial paperwork and have your main consultation with the doctor.  They will give ask you some questions and perform your first adjustment.  Normally, the appointments take about ten to fifteen minutes.  Because the process is so quick (and affordable), we don’t require appointments.

What should I do after my visit and why should I keep going to the chiropractor?

Between chiropractic appointments, it’s important to practice good back health.  Exercising with proper form and sitting properly in your desk chair can help prevent some major back injuries and pain.  Continuous chiropractic appointments can help prevent further issues that commonly result from stress and anxiety.  Maintaining proper alignment will help individuals feel better and promote better overall health.
