Your first visit is booked for a 40 minute appointment. This time is necessary to take a full medical history and to discuss the condition(s) that brought you to us. Your Chiropractor will go through your intake forms in detail when you arrive. A physical examination will immediately follow to determine more specifically what the cause(s) of the problem(s) are. The findings of this examination will then be discussed with you and recommendations for a care plan suggested and/or X-rays requested for you if your condition is appropriate for Chiropractic management. All going well, you will start your Chiropractic care on your first visit. On rare occasions, X-ray examination may be required prior to commencement of care.
Your second visit is a 20 minute appointment where our Chiropractors will take a closer look at the arches in your feet. A digital foot scanner will be used to map the bottom of your feet to determine if custom orthotics may be required. Variances in the arches in your feet may be contributing to what brought you to see us in the first place. This is evaluated on this second visit. Your Chiropractic care will then continue immediately after this assessment.
Your third and subsequent visits will be booked for 10 minutes each. During this time you will continue with your care plan as suggested on your first visit. As your condition changes, so will the recommendations for frequency and duration of your Chiropractic care. You will be directed to complete questionnaires so that we may monitor your progress and tailor your schedule accordingly as you progress with your care.
