Do chiropractors crack you on the first visit?


ot necessarily. The decision to perform spinal adjustments and whether to crack the spine is made on a case-by-case basis and depends on the patient’s condition and needs. During the first visit, the chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation, including taking a medical history, performing a physical exam, and possibly ordering diagnostic tests like X-rays or MRI scans.

Based on the findings, the chiropractor will create an individualized treatment plan that may or may not include spinal adjustments. If spinal adjustments are included in the treatment plan, the chiropractor will explain the procedure and discuss any potential risks or benefits.

It’s important to note that spinal adjustments are not the only technique used by chiropractors, and there are many other non-invasive treatments that may be used instead or in conjunction with adjustments. These may include massage, stretching, exercise, and other therapies.

Ultimately, the decision to perform a spinal adjustment on the first visit or at any subsequent visits will depend on the patient’s condition and the treatment plan created by the chiropractor.
