Your First Visit

Upon entering the office, we will have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition. For your convenience, we have this paperwork available online so you can complete it before your appointment.

Chiropractic First Visit

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems and concerns as well as potential treatment options. In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent. Your specific condition may require us to refer you for x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, you will generally be provided with your first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physiotherapy modalities, and/or soft tissue therapies.

Prior to leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.

Acupuncture First Visit

After completing the initial paperwork you will have an extensive consultation with the acupuncturist. During this consultation you and the acupuncturist will review your health history and discuss your current health-related concerns.

Once the consultation is completed, the acupuncturist will recommend a care plan specific to your needs. Treatment generally begins that same day and any at-home instructions will be reviewed prior to leaving.

If additional treatments are recommended, sessions will be scheduled before you leave.

Massage First Visit

During your first session with one of our highly-trained massage therapists, you will discuss the reason for your visit and primary areas of concern. They may also ask a few lifestyle-based questions to uncover daily routines that could prevent improvement. After this brief consultation, the therapist will customize a treatment based on your needs.

Should you require additional sessions, a convenient appointment time will be scheduled.
