Medical History

The first thing our chiropractor will do is take a complete medical history. This will include questions about your current health, any medications you are taking, any allergies you have, and your family medical history. The chiropractor will also want to know about any previous injuries or surgeries you have had.


Physical Exam

After taking your medical history, the chiropractor will do a physical examination. This will help to determine the cause of your pain or injury or what other ailment you are seeking help for with chiropractic care. The examination will also help to rule out any other conditions that may be causing your pain.



After the physical examination, the chiropractor will likely order some tests. These tests may include X-rays, MRI scans, or CT scans. The purpose of these tests is to rule out any serious conditions that may be causing your pain.


Treatment Plan

Once the tests are completed, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan. This plan may include chiropractic adjustments at our Chicago chiropractic clinic, massage, physical therapy, and/or other treatments. The treatment plan will be based on the findings of the tests and the severity of your pain or injury.

Follow-Up Care

After the treatment, the chiropractor will likely give you some home care instructions. This may include things like stretches or exercises to do on your own. You may need to return for follow-up visits, but eventually, you should start to feel better and see improvements in your overall health! Contact Forest Creek Chiropractic in Park Forest today!
