Dr. Antjuan Mitchell DC offers free consultations to anyone who wants to come to our clinic.
We use this as an opportunity for you to answer any of your questions, as well as ask our own regarding your pain or injury.
There will be standard paperwork for you to fill out along with information about your past medical history. We ask about your past medical history to help us get a complete understanding of your pain condition so we can properly diagnose and treat you.
To prepare you for your consultation, some of the questions we may ask include:
- When did your pain begin?
- Can you describe your pain?
- Was there an event that caused your pain to begin?
- Is there anything that provides pain relief?
- Is there any activity or daily task that makes the pain worse?
- Where is your pain?
- Is your pain localized or does it radiate?
- Is your pain constant?
All of these questions help the chiropractor when determining the source or root cause of your pain.
Once your consultation is finished, the chiropractor will need to perform a physical examination.
This exam will include tests that help evaluate your range of motion, muscle strength, muscle tone, and balance. You will also need x-ray testing before any treatment plan or diagnosis can be made.
When your physical exam is complete, your chiropractor will be able to come up with a specialized treatment plan that is tailored to your recovery. Each patient comes to us with unique issues, which means we never prescribe the same plan.
Your consultation, exam and x-rays will help the chiropractor determine the best treatment to help with your recovery.
