During your first visit we will obtain a case history, not just about the pain or complaint that may have brought you to the clinic, but also about your past health history. Some of the questions may appear irrelevant, but are extremely important to ensure that that chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition. Once your case history is complete, your chiropractor will perform a physical examination which will concentrate on your neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles and joints), but it may also be necessary to check other things such as heart, lungs and abdomen to rule out other causes for your symptoms.
