The Chiropractic Visit in San Diego

Shoulder Pain

A visit to the chiropractor in San Diego begins with a complete review of your current medical history. At this time, any specific issues will be discussed. The combination of your knowledge and specific complaints along with the general review of your health will help the doctor to pinpoint immediate issues. You can expect this initial visit to last about 30 minutes, with an additional 30 to 40 minutes for the doctor to address immediate problems depending if x-rays are needed to reveal underlying problems.

Relevant medical records, including x-rays, should be brought with you to this first appointment. General questions about your particular lifestyle will also be asked. Specific information about your immediate complaints such as when it started, the location of the pain, and what you believe the cause to be should be told to the doctor. After this initial discussion you may be scheduled for additional testing such as an MRI.

Once this information has been discussed the doctor will perform their own physical examination. Particular physical aspects such as your posture, range of motion, ability to move specific joints, and a check for any vertebrae that are misaligned will be carefully examined.

After completion of this assessment, a detailed treatment plan will be drawn up for you. The plan may include adjustments to your spine, physical rehabilitation through exercise, massage therapy, consultation with a nutritionist, ultrasound, acupuncture, mobilization therapy, a soft tissue workup, cold laser therapy, or craniosacral therapy (CCA).

While there may be some nervousness associated with the first visit to a chiropractor, any treatments will have a minimal discomfort level. In some cases, depending on the problem, people feel immediately better after the treatment while others can expect to continually feel better over time. Generally, patients will see significant improvement over the course of 8 to 12 visits. Indirect problems such as allergies, asthma, and arthritis will also show improvement during the therapy.

Finally, there may be some homework to do, as the doctor may recommend stretching exercises and a modified dietary plan to keep you in good physical condition. Arranging a regular visiting schedule with the doctor is another option to keep you feeling your best.
