Your First Visit:
The First Step To Better Your Health!
Congratulations on your decision of taking the first step to better your health. We will guide you through each step of our process of becoming a new patient.
- We strive to make your first visit to our office a comfortable experience. Our receptionist will welcome you and ask you to complete our intake forms. These forms will give us important information about you and your condition. The doctor will then spend sometime asking you specific questions about your condition to determine if chiropractic care is right for you. If so certain, further treatments will be discussed. If chiropractic care is not the answer, we can refer you to another health professional.
- After discussing your condition further with the doctor we will give you a thorough chiropractic examination, such as testing your ability to turn and bend, your reflexes, and other standard postural, neurological, orthopedic, and physical examinations. This important information will allow the doctor to have a better understanding of your condition and how chiropractic can help you. If needed, the doctor may refer you to take x-rays.
- After all the information including exams, forms, and x-rays (if needed) are complete. The doctor will give you a report of their findings and explain the treatment that is right for you.
- Most patients will get relief from the very first adjustment! Our office offers direct billing to many different insurance companies. For patients with no insurance coverage we offer senior/student discounts.
Once it is determined that chiropractic care will be benefit you, subsequent visits scheduled aim to balance the nervous system and improve the structure and function of your spine. Initially, visits are more frequent to gain momentum in the healing process. This is becase it takes time for ligaments and muscles to re-learn new ways of moving and functioning. We will monitor this process with regular progress exams. Each visit builds on the ones before and remember, you're doing the healing, not the chiropractor.
In the later stages of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the initial phase of care depending on your particular circumstances. Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
The word chiropractic comes from ancient Greek meaning “done by hand”. Derived from the words "chiro" meaning "hand" and "praxis" meaning to do.
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated to tailor individual patient needs. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies.
There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care:
- Back pain
- Neck pain

It is reported that approximately 2 million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy, active lives. (OCA, 2016)
