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.
Patients do not need a medical referral to consult a doctor of chiropractic.
