If you have not previously consulted with us, your doctor will meet with you and give a consultation specific to our office. This includes a pertinent health history and chiropractic exam. If a spinal misalignment is found three x-rays of the upper cervical spine will be taken. At this point, your visit is complete, and if not already scheduled, you will be asked to set up an appointment for your first spinal correction at the earliest possible time - preferably within 1-2 days. (For patients who travel from long distances, visits 1 and 2 can be scheduled on the same day for your convenience.) Your doctor will analyze your x-rays to determine exactly how to correct your specific misalignment and prepare for the next visit.
