After completing a few brief forms, you will meet with Dr. Bell. The purpose of your consultation and examination is to see if chiropractic can help you. If you are a candidate for Chiropractic care, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem. We have x-ray capabilities at the office so the doctor can see your spine and what might be causing your problems. Dr. Bell only uses X-rays when he feels that it is absolutely necessary. If you are a new patient, X-rays are NOT mandatory to begin treatment. You WILL be treated on the first visit if you are a candidate for Chiropractic care. Follow up instructions will be tailored to your current condition and needs.
Patient response will vary by person, condition, and the duration of the existing condition. The day and night following the first adjustment you might feel sore and sometimes the pain may feel worse. This is normal. Your body most likely has been in distortion for quite some time and may resist the new changes at first. We will address this at your follow up appointments and make recommendations based on your individual response.
