Chiropractic work can be incredibly beneficial for people of all ages. When you receive chiropractic care, a chiropractor works directly with you and on your body. Because this care is so hands-on, you might consider a chiropractic consultation so you know better what to expect. 

What Chiropractic Work is

If you have never gone to a chiropractor, you can ask what chiropractic work is during a consultation. A professional chiropractor or member of their team will help you understand that it is a non-invasive and safe procedure for relieving pain and tension. Chiropractic work is often suggested for those who were recently in car accidents or have had recent injuries, but it can also be helpful for those with long-term pain. 

Your Injury or Pain

Chiropractic care is highly individualized and personal. You should discuss in your consultation what injury or pain you are experiencing. Be as detailed as possible about your injury or pain so the chiropractor will better know how to treat you. If you can remember, tell the chiropractor or their team when your injury occurred or when the pain started and what caused it. You can also let them know what other types of pain relief or treatment you have sought and if you have gone to a chiropractor before. When a chiropractor knows more about your injury or pain, they are better equipped to treat it. 

Projected Care and Outcomes

If the chiropractor or chiropractic team thinks they will be able to treat you, they can walk you through an outline of your projected care. This will probably include a timeline, multiple visits, and information about each visit. Keep in mind that this is a rough outline; your care will be adjusted as necessary once it begins. During the consultation, they may also be able to give you a predicted outcome, including how much your pain will decrease and the increase in your mobility. 

Great chiropractors and chiropractic teams will always be willing to consult with you. Reputable chiropractors want you to feel comfortable receiving care from them, so they will be very willing to answer any questions you may have. How a consultation with a professional or their team goes is a great indication of what actually working with them would be like.
