You will meet with Dr. Craig to discuss the reason you are seeking chiropractic care. In order for us to determine if chiropractic is right for you, we may ask questions regarding previous injuries, postural habits, sports, medication usage and results, diet, repetitive stressors, etc. If we think your problem is outside of our expertise, we will let you know.
After the consultation, the doctor will perform an examination. The examination will consist of height, weight and blood pressure, postural evaluation, range of motion, orthopedic and/or neurological testing, chiropractic examination, and digital x-rays (if necessary).
