Your initial visit may take up to 60 minutes and includes a complete history and exam which consists of, but not limited to orthopedic/neurological evaluation, review of systems and past medical and family history. If further evaluation is needed, the doctor may request nerve conduction velocity (NCV), diagnostic ultrasound, x-ray and/or other tests. Most patients state that treatment makes them feel relaxed and able to move around better, but some experience minor soreness after treatment. Conservative treatment used by chiropractors is among the safest and most effective for a variety of conditions.
