Chiropractic Consultation Q&A

What is a chiropractic consultation?

A chiropractic consultation is an opportunity to discuss your symptoms and health history with Dr. Chang. It’s a one-on-one visit that lasts 30-60 minutes. You can ask questions, vocalize concerns, and determine if chiropractic care is right for you. 

What happens during a chiropractic consultation?

At Chirowell, Dr. Chang tailors chiropractic consultations to each patient’s needs. Still, most visits follow a similar structure:

Step one - Medical history

Dr. Chang completes a new patient interview before making any treatment recommendations. He asks various questions, including why you want help, if you’ve been diagnosed with any chronic medical conditions, and if you take prescription medication or supplements.

Answer Dr. Chang’s questions honestly. He isn’t there to judge you, but your responses can help determine the best type of treatment.

Step two - Physical exam

Dr. Chang completes a physical exam. He feels your back and neck, carefully moves your joints and observes your gait and posture. Then, Dr. Chang tests your muscle strength, reflexes, and range of motion. He might also order X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI.

Step three - Chiropractic care and treatment recommendations

At Chirowell, Dr. Chang practices the Zone chiropractic technique, a noninvasive methodology that enhances communication between your brain and your body’s six zones.

Dr. Chang’s zone technique may include various treatments, routine chiropractic adjustments, healthy lifestyle changes, and complementary procedures like spinal decompression and hygiene.

Dr. Chang develops custom chiropractic treatment plans for each individual.

What are some examples of chiropractic treatment?

At Chirowell, Dr. Chang uses holistic and noninvasive treatments to relieve both musculoskeletal pain and nonmusculoskeletal conditions and encourage the body’s healing process. He might recommend:

  • Zone Chiropractic adjustments
  • Physiotherapy
  • Ice and heat therapy
  • Proper ergonomics to improve your posture
  • Stress management techniques
  • Spinal hygiene
  • Manual Therapy

Dr. Chang might recommend weight loss programs if you experience weight-related issues, like joint pain or poor mobility. Medically supervised weight loss can help you shed pounds and keep them off.

What happens after a chiropractic consultation?

After a chiropractic consultation, you can return to your routine right away. If you undergo a chiropractic adjustment or spinal decompression, it’s normal to experience mild stiffness or muscle pain. These symptoms should improve within a day or two, but if they get worse, contact Dr. Chang right away.
