Our professional team strives to provide a comfortable and inclusive environment to all patients.
What to expect on your first visit
During the initial consultation, a thorough case history will be taken, followed by a physical examination. The examination is tailored to your specific needs and includes observation of the area, ranges of motion assessment, postural assessment, neurological and orthopedic testing, myofascial analysis, a vertebrogenic kinematical assessment (spinal functional examination), as well as, a spinal scan with the Sigma Ultralign instrument. A computerized gait scan evaluation is also performed when indicated. Radiological investigations may also be reviewed.
After completion of the examination, the patient is informed of the clinical findings pertinent to their assessment and a plan of management is specifically designed to address the issue.
Where the examination identifies patients who are not suited to chiropractic care, or in the unusual event that a patient does not respond to care, they will be referred to the appropriate and best suited health care professional.
What to expect for subsequent treatments
The number of treatments required can vary between patients as a result of the severity of the injury. When patients seek care without delay, changes can be occur rapidly, however longer recovery times are generally anticipated for chronic conditions. Some patients may benefit from supportive care (periodic treatment), which helps maintain an optimal level of health and improved function to avoid relapses or further injury.
Therapeutic and educational components are adjusted as patients conditions evolve and change to maximize treatment outcomes in both the short and long term.
Patients do not need a medical referral to consult a doctor of chiropractic.
