Here at Lake Michigan Chiropractic, we want to ensure that when you enter our doors you know exactly what to expect.
Once you have an appointment booked, you will be greeted by our friendly receptionist who will be awaiting your arrival. We want to ensure that we understand you, your pain, and your history completely so you will be expected to fill out paperwork when you arrive.
This paperwork will ask for your family history because some issues in your body can be hereditary (but that does not mean that we cannot fix them). It will also ask you questions about your health habits and your medical history. We want to cover all bases so that we are able to help you as much as possible.
Depending on your injury, we may or may not require X-rays. Most of the time, we perform X-rays to get a good look at your spine. This should be done only if you are a new patient or there is a change in your condition.
After your examination, which will require you to move around and possibly even lay down so that we can get a better feel for what is going on, you will be able to talk to our compassionate and knowledgeable chiropractor. Be sure to tell Lake Michigan Chiropractic all about the pain you are experiencing and any other symptoms you may be having.
At that point, the chiropractor will discuss your condition and your options. Together, you can decide what you feel comfortable doing and come up with a game plan to help you.
