What Can I Expect on My First Visit?

The first time you visit our office you will greeted by our receptionist. She will ask you to complete forms outlining your medical history and the reason for your visit. If you prefer, you may obtain copies of these forms by clicking HERE and complete them prior to your appointment.

Next you will meet with Dr. Donald Littlejohn. He will discuss the health complaints about which you are chiefly concerned. Dr. Littlejohn will also ask about your family history, dietary habits, other care you may have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.), as well as your work and other activities that are a part of your life. These questions help to determine the nature of your illness and the best way to go about treating the problem.

Dr. Donald LittlejohnFollowing your case history, a physical examination will be performed. If necessary, x-rays or other diagnostic procedures may be appropriate. Additionally, a careful spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition. All of these elements are important components of your total health profile and vital to the doctor of chiropractic in evaluating your problem.

If x-rays or other tests have been ordered, Dr. Littlejohn will discuss the findings with you on your next office visit. He will review your insurance benefits with you and make every effort to answer any questions you may have regarding your care in our office.

Once Dr. Littlejohn has identified the problem, he will recommend a course of treatment. Care typically consists of chiropractic manipulative therapy, also known as "adjustments." The adjustment is given by hand and consists of applying pressure to the areas of the spine that are out of alignment (also known as subluxations) or that do not move properly within their normal range of motion.

Your treatment may also be supplemented by adjunctive modalities (i.e. ultrasound therapy, electric muscle stimulation), therapeutic stretches, and therapeutic exercises. Additionally, Dr. Littlejohn may suggest ways to modify your daily activities to prevent further injury.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (845) 469-7575.
