What You May Expect During an Initial Visit
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor or practitioner to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the practitioner will take a thorough history and ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to further determine the underlying imbalances or driving factors contributing to your health concerns.
X-Rays or Other Imaging
Your specific condition may require our Chiropractors to order x-rays or other imaging to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
Bloodwork or Specialty Lab Testing
Bloodwork, stool testing, and breath or saliva testing may be recommended by our Chiroprators or Naturopath. Many of these tests can be ordered through our office.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the initial Chiropractic or Acupuncture history and examination, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy modalities, cupping, acupuncture, specific stretches or exercises, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
