Upon entering our practice, our Chiropractic Assistant (CA) will welcome you. They will ensure that your client file is complete and ready for your appointment.
First Visit – New Client Consultation, Examination and Postural Evaluation
On your first visit, you will have a consultation with one of our chiropractors to discuss your health-related problems and concerns. This initial visit is designed for our chiropractors to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can help you meet your goals.
After your consultation, our chiropractors will perform a thorough and complete chiropractic examination. The examination will analyse your spine and nervous system integrity. The examination will include standard neurological, orthopaedic, spinal analysis and physical tests.
On your first visit, we also offer a digital Postural Evaluation using Posture Screen which may identify any postural imbalances.
After the examination is finished, the chiropractor may refer for specific x-rays to be taken.
At this point, the chiropractor will ask you if you have any questions and concerns. Upon reviewing your case and potential x-rays, the chiropractor will determine the appropriate care plan that will suit your needs and will be discussed at your Report of Findings visit.
Second Visit – Report of Findings and Chiropractic Adjustment
Once your x-rays have been assessed and correlated with your exam findings, the chiropractor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
What is wrong?
How long will it take?
Your program of care
How can chiropractic care help?
After a thorough review of your health history, goals, and examining your spinal findings and x-rays, the chiropractor will discuss the key recommendations and notify you if you are fit for chiropractic care. The chiropractor will provide the best treatment for your individual needs.
At the conclusion of your report of findings visit, the chiropractor will adjust your spine. If you have any concerns at any point through the adjustment process let the chiropractor know and they will modify their technique to satisfy your concerns. After your first adjustment the chiropractor will check in before your next visit to see if you have any other questions or concerns about care.
Your spine will be analysed. If vertebral subluxations are found, your spine will be adjusted. How your spinal and nervous system function is progressing will be monitored and reported to you at appropriate intervals with progressive examinations and reports.
At your progress examination, you will be asked to complete a subjective progress report. A thorough comparative examination will be conducted to see how you have progressed under care. At this point, the chiropractor will make a recommendation based on their findings, your updated forms and will suggest adaptions to your program of care based on your current health goals and needs. The stage of care you are currently in will be discussed along with steps on how you can progress to the next level of care.
