The First Visit

Please wear clothing that allows you to move around in so that all necessary testing can be performed. This appointment takes 1-1.5 hours in total and involves the following:

  • Taking your health history
  • A specific examination tailored to your area of complaint
  • Discussing your diagnosis and a treatment plan
  • Receiving your first chiropractic adjustment

Following Up

Subsequent appointments take about 30-40 minutes to complete. Dr. Backhaus will answer your questions or address any concerns, then treat you according to your plan.

As you start to feel better, the frequency of your visits will decrease. Dr. Backhaus will also advise you on other lifestyle aspects such as nutrition, posture, ergonomics and exercises to speed your healing.
