Your initial appointment - to find out if we can help
On your first visit we will sit down with you and discuss your current health situation to assess whether you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, or if not, determine who the right person is to help you.
If we think we can help you, we will conduct a thorough examination to determine how we can best care for you. All of the testing should be comfortable, and will include looking at how you hold your body (posture), how you move your body (range of movement), how well your body is functioning eg balance testing, muscle activation and tendon reflexes. This information helps us identify the cause or causes of your problem.
Often we can start care on this visit. Sometimes, depending on your condition and the results of our tests, we may then refer for x-rays or occasionally CT or MRI imaging (not performed on pregnant women, and are typically not required with children). We will know at this visit whether or not these tests are required before care can begin. Please bring copies of any recent imaging with you to this visit.
You should allow 45 minutes for your first visit.
Your report of findings appointment – we’ll tell you what we found and answer all your questions
During your second visit, we will go through what we have found, what we can do to help, how long it may take and how much it will cost.
