Your First Visit: What To Expect
Many of our patients come to their first Broomfield chiropractic visit with a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic care. They may have heard stories from friends or relatives that may have been outdated or simply misunderstood. What should you expect from your first visit to our Broomfield chiropractor?
Upon your initial visit, your Broomfield chiropractor will have you fill out the necessary forms and introduce you to what exactly chiropractic care is and how and why it works. We encourage you to bring your health insurance policy so we can help determine your benefits. If you don't have medical benefits, don't worry. Summit Medical Care Center offers affordable payment plans.
You'll meet our team and get the answers to any specific questions you may have. You'll be asked a variety of questions about why you are seeking chiropractic care. You'll have the opportunity to tell us about any pain or discomfort you've been feeling and how long you've been experiencing it. You'll want to let us know if you are in pain at the time of your visit, and whether that pain was the result of some trauma like an automobile accident or sports injury.
You will be given a physical examination that, along with your medical history, will help us determine a diagnosis. An initial exam may include lab tests like an x-ray, MRI or CT scan to confirm the diagnosis. Your Doctor of Chiropractic will discuss with you chiropractic services that are appropriate for your specific condition. If your Broomfield chiropractor feels your care would be better managed by another health care professional, you will then get an appropriate referral.
Whether or not you receive chiropractic treatment on your initial visit to Summit Medical Care Center will depend on you, your condition, and what your doctor feels is best. Patients who are in pain will usually get some form of treatment to immediately provide relief. Although chiropractic care is designed to ultimately fix your problems at the core and is a process that can take a period of time, many of our patients find at least some relief from pain from their initial treatment.
