Home » Your First Visit

During your first visit to Northwest Chiropractic Center Dr. Junkin will discuss the nature and extent of your condition with you to determine if chiropractic or nutritional care is an appropriate treatment for the condition. The first visit usually includes a consultation, examination and spinal x-rays if needed. If chiropractic or nutrition care is not suitable for your condition, we readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider.
