Getting Started at Westwood Family Chiropractic
Welcome to Westwood Family Chiropractic!
Your first visit will be approximately an hour long. It will include a health history consultation, physical examination, computerized postural assessment and x-rays, if necessary.
All of these tests allow us to determine the most appropriate technique and approach to help you. It also gives us a baseline for future tests so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is improving. At the end of your first visit we will schedule for your second appointment which we call the Report of Findings and your Self Care Workshop.
Your First Visit
Feel free to fill out our intake forms before your first visit to the office.
The consultation is a designated one-on-one time for you and the doctor to review your health history, address any concerns or questions that you may have, and explain how chiropractic care may help.
Following the consultation the doctor will perform a complete chiropractic evaluation testing the health of your nervous system. This will include a physical examination of your spine and a computerized postural exam.
Depending on your health history, age, and exam findings, we may suggest x-rays. X-rays give us the ability to see the alignment and motion of your spine. It gives us a clearer picture of spinal biomechanics and your spinal history.
Your Second Visit
