What to Expect
When it comes time for your first chiropractic appointment, we want to put your mind at ease. From the moment you walk through our office door, our inviting and welcoming staff and practitioners will be waiting to greet you.
It is common to have questions and concerns before your first visit to any new healthcare provider. Luckily, chiropractors know that new patients may need extra time to discuss their questions or concerns.
Duration of Visit
Chiropractors are extensively trained to assess, diagnose, manage and prevent reoccurrence of Nerve, Muscular and Skeletal conditions. Depending on the complaint for which you are seeking treatment, initial visits last approximately 30 minutes.
The first visit aims to identify the cause of the problem and discuss a proposed plan of management and treatment options. Our Saanicthon Chiropractors focus on patient centred care so make sure you communicate your needs and goals to your chiropractor.
Online Intake Forms
Before your first visit, you will be sent a link to fill out general intake forms, health history and information on what injury brings you to the clinic.
It is important you fill these forms in to the best of your ability as this information is important for our Chiropractors in Saanichton to have before your visit.
If you do not have access or ability to complete online forms, please arrive at your initial visit 15mins early to fill the forms in on paper before your visit.
Health History + Physical Exam
Your first appointment includes a comprehensive health discussion and in-depth physical assessment to help determine the cause of the problem and how to treat it.
Once your Chiropractor diagnosis your issue, they will come up with a plan to manage your issue and advice on how to help it not return.
Your chiropractor will be happy to answer questions, address concerns and explain different options to you. This may include preventative strategies and changes in lifestyle practices.
