First Visit Expectations

What Can I Expect During My First Visit?

At Wilmington Pike Chiropractic you will be greated by a friendly receptionist who will instruct you on how to fill out your paperwork. She will also ask you for your insurance card, if you have one, and photo identification. Once your paperwork is filled out you will be taken to the examination room where you will then consult with Dr. Harker. Dr. Harker will get a detailed history of your chief complaint and any other health concerns. A physical examination will be performed which will include orthopedic testing, range of motion testing, reflex assessments, muscle testing, and a specific Chiropractic evaluation. In most cases x-rays will be necessary to help determine an exact diagnosis. The x-ray suite is located at Wilmington Pike Chiropractic.

What can I expect on my second visit?

Once the x-rays are developed Dr Harker will go over the results of the examination and x-rays with you. This is called the Report Of Findings . He will tell you what your problem is, how long it will take to feel better and how much it will cost. Treatment will begin after the Report Of Findings .
