Chiropractors in South Seattle : What to Expect

Your First Visit

Your first visit at our office is also the longest one. This is when your South Seattle chiropractor will collect all the information necessary to take care of you, and you can expect to spend about an hour in our office.


Our Chiropractors in South Seattle will warmly welcome you.

New patients are warmly welcomed to our South Seattle chiropractic office.

First, you’ll need to fill out some forms that are tailored to your specific situation—general history, auto accident, on the job injury, Medicare, etc. You can save time by downloading these forms and filling them out prior to your first visit, if you wish.


In the examination room, we’ll first go through your health history with you, to make sure we understand your problems thoroughly. We measure your spinal flexibility and muscle activity, as well as analyze your posture and palpate (feel) your spine.

We will also perform specific tests, including orthopedic tests as necessary to further evaluate any areas of pain. With all this information, we can narrow down the areas of your spine that need a closer look, decide if spinal X-rays will be needed, and decide if yours is a chiropractic problem or if a referral to another practitioner is needed.

Reasons for Taking Spinal X-rays

To assess the condition (health) of your spine—whether your spine can tolerate an adjustment, which adjusting techniques or methods are appropriate, and show exactly where the problems are.

Your First Adjustment

You will also receive your first spinal adjustment. We develop and analyze your X-rays and other examination results on the first visit, so that if possible we can help you right away. Later, we will set aside time to explain in detail what all the tests revealed, what we’ve found and our detailed recommendations in your care.
