Your First Visit

Going to the chiropractor for the first time will make some people nervous! Of course, there is no need to be. Your first visit to the chiropractor will be informative, relaxing and comfortable. Your initial visit will go like this…

 

  • Walk up to front reception and introduce yourself to our friendly staff (most people have booked an appointment in advance – recommended)
  • Our staff will put you at ease and start you on the paperwork
  • You will then be taken to the new patient room and asked to change into a gown
  • You will be shown a short introductory video to further reduce any anxiety
  • The chiropractor will enter and conduct a thorough history and chiropractic examination based on you health concerns
  • The chiropractor will answer any other questions you may have and then ask that you return to reception
  • Your report of findings will be scheduled and you will be sent for X-Rays if deemed necessary (see report of finding below)
  • Your first visit usually takes 30 – 40 minutes

 

How to dress

On your first visit you will be asked to change into a gown in order for the doctor to conduct a thorough spinal examination. For all subsequent visits your normal attire is perfectly fine.

 

What to bring

On your first visit to the office we will require your health card. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member and be sure to bring a list of questions and concerns as well as a list of any medications you may be taking. If you have had X-ray/MRI/CT examinations recently and have access to the reports, please bring a copy.

 

Your second visit: The Report of Findings

Your second visit will start with a comprehensive report of findings during which your chiropractor will explain the findings and recommendations from your first visit including your X-Ray results if applicable. Your first chiropractic treatment (called an adjustment) will take place once the procedure has been thoroughly explained. Our front staff will then sit down with you and work out a schedule of recommended visits.
