Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect at my first visit?
At your first visit you will be welcomed into the clinic by one of our helpful chiropractic assistants who will ask you to fill out paperwork with your personal contact details as well as information that relates to your current and past health challenges. You will then meet with a chiropractor who will spend time reviewing a thorough case history and examination with the intent to determine the cause of your current health challenge and if chiropractic can help. Depending on what is found during your examination, you may be required to have x-rays taken. We have a radiographer on site who can help to have this done.

What happens at my Report of Findings?
After the chiropractor has had time to review, study, and evaluate the findings from your examination and x-rays if appropriate, a follow-up visit called your ‘Report of Findings’ is made where you will be shown what is causing your current health challenge, how chiropractic may help, and how long it may take to get you well. Your chiropractor will suggest a care plan that is customized to your needs based on these findings and previous experience with patients who have faced similar challenges. If you wish to follow these recommendations, you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment at this visit.

How long will it take for me to feel better?
Healing takes time and this time is different from one person to the next. The rate and capacity of which you are able to notice results depends on many factors such as how long you have been dealing with the problem, underlying structural damage, the severity of the problem, and other lifestyle stressors such as the quality of your nutrition, fitness level, and mental-emotional stressors that constantly surround you. Before starting care, your chiropractor will outline ways to help you help yourself that will, in turn, help you to feel better faster and function more optimally.
