What to Expect at a Chiropractic Visit

If you’ve never visited a chiropractor in San Jose before, you may be a little anxious about your first appointment. Chiropractors conduct the first appointment in much the same way as any other medical professional. The chiropractor will request your medical history and ask you about your symptoms. It’s helpful to be as specific as possible. For example, if you inform the chiropractor that you’re experiencing lower back pain, you can mention whether it might be an accident injury. Then, the chiropractor will perform a physical and functional examination before providing treatment recommendations.
