Your First Visit

What Should You Expect on Your First Visit With Us?

At Wilburn Chiropractic our examinations procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations).  The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health.  There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.

Our Examination consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes "Palpation".  Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand.  With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations problems.  Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxations.  Neurological and Orthopedic test are also performed as indicated.  Our goal is to make sure you are in the right place to best address your needs.  If we feel you would be better served by another specialty, or that you would benefit from a second opinon, we have a number of other providers and specialists with whom we work.


Spinal X-rays:  You may be referred out for x-rays depending on your age, and situation.  There are many reasons why we would not ask for x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations.  X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it.  X-rays also tell us the relative length of time subluxations may have been involved in your spine. 

Our Chiropractic Care at Wilburn Chiropractic utilizes the most modern chiropractic analytical, and  adjustive procedures and equipment available.  We consider spinal problems to be a serious threat to the quality and quantity of your health and that of your family.  It is therefore imperative that we utilize the most modern, and the well established time-proven procedures to help you.  We feel you're worth it!
