What to Wear for Your Chiropractic Appointment at Kasa? 

Heading to your chiropractor at Kasa for a chiropractic adjustment or care? It’s natural to wonder what to wear to ensure comfort and ease during your session. Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the right outfit for your chiropractic appointment.

First-Time Visitors

For your initial chiropractic appointment, comfort and accessibility are key. We conduct a comprehensive assessment, which might include a chiropractic adjustment. For this, wearing comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing is advisable. We provide a gown for examinations, so wearing undergarments like a bra is essential.

Follow-Up Appointments

Post the first visit, your appointments are all about maintaining and enhancing the benefits of your chiropractic care. Here, comfort reigns supreme. Opt for clothing that allows free movement and doesn’t restrict access to areas needing treatment. Yoga pants, leggings, or loose-fitting trousers are excellent choices. For tops, choose something stretchable that won’t hinder movements.

Initial Chiropractic Appointment 

During your first visit, we’ll conduct a detailed examination covering nerves, muscles, and joints, and in some cases, an x-ray may be necessary. For this initial assessment, we provide a gown, so it’s important to wear underwear. Rest assured, the gown is typically required only for this first visit to ensure a thorough evaluation.

Dress Comfortably for Follow-Up Appointments

Your subsequent chiropractic sessions at Kasa Chiropractic will be more relaxed. Feel free to wear everyday clothing such as sweatpants, leggings, or yoga pants. Clothes made of stretchy materials are ideal, as they allow for easy movement during the treatment.

Specific Clothing Queries

  • Jeans and Dress Shoes: You can wear jeans or dress shoes to your appointment. Our chiropractors are adept at working around such attire, although for comfort, many patients prefer removing their shoes.
  • Bras and Sports Bras: For women, wearing a bra or sports bra is fine and doesn’t interfere with chiropractic adjustments.
  • Jewellery: While small jewellery items are generally not a problem, we advise against wearing bulky accessories that could obstruct the treatment.
  • Shirts and Sweaters: During colder months, it’s okay to wear thick sweaters. We’ll let you know if adjustments are needed during your session.
  • Hairstyles: Any hairstyle is suitable for your appointment. For those with longer hair, a ponytail or bun is recommended, particularly during neck adjustments.

General Guidance

The simple rule is: come as you are. Whether you’re heading to the office in a suit, wearing jeans, or in a dress for a social event, your comfort is our priority. However, if you’re wondering what to wear for ease during treatment, here are a few tips:

  • Comfortable Clothes: Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes like yoga pants, sweatpants, or shorts. These allow for easy movement and don’t restrict your chiropractor’s access for assessment and treatment.
  • Regarding Bras: Women often ask if they should wear a bra. A regular or sports-type bra is perfectly fine, and it won’t get in the way of your treatment. However, if you’re wearing a bulky or underwire bra, you might be more comfortable in a sports bra.
  • Shoes: Avoid wearing high heels or dress shoes as they may restrict your movements. Flat shoes or tennis shoes are usually more comfortable, especially if you’re going to be lying on the massage table.
  • Accessories and Bulky Clothing: Bulky clothing, like heavy jackets or hoodies, might need to be removed. Also, consider leaving chunky jewellery or accessories that could get tangled or restrict movement at home.
