New Patient Paperwork
Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. This paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Be sure to bring information for your extended health benefits if you have any!
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the Practitioner you are booked with to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual condistion is and where your pain may be stemming from, the Practitioner will ask you various questions related to your condition. Sometimes the Practitioner will perform a number of specialized tests to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients 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.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen for a follow-up visit within a week or two of their first appointment to see how they are feeling after the first treatment. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
