Your First Visit
Here is what you can expect on your first visit:
1. Check in
Check in at the front desk and we will get you set up for our secure electronic check in process for your future visits. Sit down and relax and help yourself to a cup of tea of coffee.
2. Initial Paperwork
Complete initial paperwork electronically with one of our lovely team members. We want to get to know you better. No need to fill anything before you get there, we will do it for you.
3. Chiropractic Examination
One of our Doctors will complete a comprehensive exam including a computerized health analysis called the Insight Millennium and the Nervoscope. This will identify areas in your spine that may have nerve pressure and muscle tension.
X-rays are often helpful in determining your course of care. Your doctor will discuss with you whether or not x-rays are needed. Please rest assured, x-ray exposure is minimized by:
-only taking necessary views
-using up-to-date technology/equipment
-conducting government inspections of equipment
-using high tech digital technology
-using highly accurate, electronic timing
-limiting the beam with filters and collimation
The doctor will review results of your exam and x-rays and explain the type of adjustment(s) and care that will be provided to you. Our doctors make a point to explain in terms that you can understand – we even have visuals if that suits you better!
6. Specific Spinal Adjustment
If the results of your examination indicate the need for an adjustment, the doctor will perform a very specific adjustment using their hands. You will hear and feel the vertebral adjustment.
7. Home Instructions
Following your adjustment, the doctor may give you specific home instructions to follow which will assist the adjustment by allowing your body to start healing. Instructions may include icing instructions or specific neck and back exercises.
To see is to know, to not see is to guess. We will not guess on your health.
