Your First Chiropractic Visit

FIRST - THE FORMS

Filling out forms at the chiropractic officeOn your first visit to Kura Chiropractic, we set up your chart, record any insurance information, and ask you to complete our new patient health history form located in the New Patient Center. You may opt to fill this form out online before your first visit.

The information you provide will help us to evaluate your condition and devise the best plan for your recovery.

NEXT - A CONSULTATION

At the initial consultation with Dr.. Douglas Fredman you will discuss what brought you to seek chiropractic treatment. Based upon your responses on the forms, you may discuss other health-related problems

Dr. Douglas Fredman will inform you of potential treatment options, and address your concerns. You'll be told what to expect from the course of your treatment, your responsibilities in your recovery, and approximately how long to expect treatment to continue.


Examination at the inital chiropractic visit

EXAMINATION

Dr. Douglas Fredman will perform a complete chiropractic examination. The testing includes evaluation of your reflexes, flexibility, posture, areas of soreness and achiness, and nerve sensitivity through a battery of standardized orthopedic, postural, neurological, and physical tests.

X-RAYS

Certain conditions may indicate the need for x-ray radiography to better assess the condition of the vertebrae, spinal discs, nerve impingement, stenosis, degeneration or arthritic changes. We do not perform radiography in this office. We will refer you to a local radiographer that accepts your insurance plan. Radiography results usually have quick turn around, and we'll be able to return to our office soon to see the results and discuss the meaning of what we find.

X-rays alert us of any serious spinal conditions you may have, and help us to develop  the best treatment plan for you.
