Before chiropractic care is rendered a thorough exam and analysis is performed and a plan of action is recommended. Your comprehensive evaluation will consist of a complete health history, a postural, spinal, orthopedic, and neurological exam, and a noninvasive, objective measure of spinal motor and autonomic nerve activity. A chiropractic adjustment is rarely received on the first visit.
