What to Expect on Your First Visit:
Besides a warm, friendly, caring, and family-focused environment with lots of empathy, compassion, patience, and support, new patients to our centre can also expect the following:
On your first visit to our office you will be welcomed with a warm smile from our office team: Angela or Teddianne. You’ll be asked to fill out forms which will help us gain some information about you, your health concerns, and wellness goals.
Your chiropractor will then discuss your situation with you and ask some specific questions regarding your health concerns to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If the doctor feels they can help you, they will let you know. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete examination. Our Centre has a great complement of diagnostic tools which allow us to fully evaluate the unique needs of each patient. These tools include posture and gait scanning, surface EMG and thermography, as well as digital x-ray systems to assure a thorough and comprehensive assessment of your particular concerns.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will sit down with you to talk about the results of each of the tests performed. They’ll explain the different treatment options available for you, the benefits of each, as well as how they will help you reach your health goals. They will also outline the frequency and duration of treatments to expect as well as the financial obligations of each. We ensure that you are given time to discuss your options and have any questions or concerns answered before beginning care in our office.
The First (and Future) Treatments
Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first adjustment. Our chiropractic treatments are as varied as our patients; gentle enough for newborns, interactive enough for kids (they love us) or strong enough to have an effect on the largest linebacker. Depending on your need and comfort level, your treatment will be just what you are looking for. Our patient-centered, non-rushed, education-driven philosophy encourages questions from our patients and we never set a time limit on your appointment. Just call and let us know how long you need and we’ll look forward to providing you our utmost attention and care.
What Makes us Special?
Scheduled Progress Checks: Along your journey back to optimal health you will have many Progress Examinations. These provide a time for both the chiropractor and patient to check in to determine that recovery is progressing as expected, that you are happy with the care you are receiving, if you have any new concerns or questions, or simply to give each other a high five and continue on with your care.
Education: We believe in the importance of education, that you should know the why and how of your care, as well as other ways to improve your health. As a patient in our centre you will have many options to become motivated and encouraged towards better health. We offer weekly introductions to health classes, monthly advanced health classes on topics such as movement, nutritional, and emotional health, and individual sessions for the very inquisitive and motivated patient.
