What to Expect

First Visit

The initial consultation is a thorough examination to determine how you can benefit from chiropractic. You can expect to be in the clinic for approximately 40 minutes. Once you have completed our New Patient Form the chiropractor will take you through to the consultation room. Here, the chiropractor will conduct a thorough history, a neurological, orthopedic and chiropractic examination. If necessary, X-rays can be taken on site.

You can usually expect to receive your first chiropractic adjustment during this consultation if it is deemed necessary at that point.

Feel assured that if the chiropractor does not feel chiropractic is appropriate, you will be promptly referred to a more suitable professional.

If at any stage you have any questions feel free to ask. If at any stage of chiropractic care you wish not to continue care for whatever reason please let us know.

Your Second Visit

This is our opportunity to let you know exactly what is going on with you and chiropractic.

Allow approximately 30 minutes for this Report of Findings visit. We will take you through the following:

  • Take you through your X-rays step by step
  • Explain the nuts and bolts of chiropractic
  • Let you know exactly what we found during your initial visit
  • Tie it all together and let you know how you can benefit from spinal care
  • Let you know what will be involved and the type of schedule you will require to achieve best results
  • You will receive a chiropractic adjustment to get you on the road to recovery.

Regular Visits

In order to attain optimal spinal function it is often necessary to train the joints to move properly again. Often spinal dysfunction or stiffness has built up over many years – in most cases since birth. Correction therefore takes place over time with a series of regular adjustments. The visits are more frequent at first and subsequently spread out.

Expect to spend about 15 minutes at the clinic for these visits. We will schedule thorough re-examinations called Progress Exams from time to time. These take a little longer but we will let you know in advance. And don’t worry: although the adjustment can be a little noisy, it will be gentle, specific and in almost all cases absolutely painless.
