  Question

What should I bring to my chiropractic treatment?

some essentials for every chiropractic treatment.

During your initial visit it would be helpful to bring a recent copy of a diagnostic imaging report and/or images if you have them but it is not always necessary. Once again it depends of the nature of the injury you may have so you may be advised to get imaging if it is deemed necessary. For motor vehicle accidents it is necessary for the patient to bring their insurance policy number and/or accident claim number and personal insurance benefits coverage if they have some. For clothing it is advised to bring shorts for lower extremity problems and loose clothing. But if you contact the clinic’s receptionist they would be more than happy to guide you through the process.
