Although no two people are the same, each patient’s initial visit will include some basic steps. Upon arrival for your first appointment, there is new-patient paperwork that will need to be completed (to save time, these can be printed off of our website under the “New Patient: Chiropractic Intake Forms” tab). At this point, the doctor will do a case history, posture analysis, thermography scans and take full-spine x-rays if needed. In many cases, this concludes the first visit. In some cases the doctor will adjust you same-day. A complete report of findings and first adjustment is common on the second visit for most patients. Your first visit to Lawlor Chiropractor can take approximately an hour depending on each individual case.
