Documenting Initial Assessment

The Chiropractic Patient Assessment Sets Doctors Apart

Assessment is what separates a physician from a technician, a chiropractor from a chiropractic assistant or chiropractic technician. The assessment is the sum total of the data gathered, both subjective and objective, being filtered through the chiropractor’s clinical experience and knowledge. This aids in rounding out the diagnosis choice, the treatment plan recommendations, and the prognostic factors presented to give a more holistic view of what is likely to come, as treatment begins.

Chiropractic Documentation Must Include Initial Patient Assessment

The important assessment of the initial patient encounter sets the tone for the diagnosis and treatment plan, playing a significant role in their formation. During the assessment, you, as the treating chiropractor, demonstrate and document information related to the evidence presented by your patient and their condition.
