Before Adjustment

The chiropractor will ask you about your medical history. We will also perform some examinations and tests for example physical exams, and X-rays. 

During Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustments usually take place on the chiropractic table. The chiropractor will use their hands or special instruments to perform the chiropractic adjustments. You may hear some popping sounds but patients are different. The sound is not an indication of effective or ineffective chiropractic adjustment.
