The first visit - your initial consultation
At Simply Health, we aim to make all new patients feel comfortable and heard. On you first visit, you will sit down with one of our chiropractors and discuss your current health situation. Our chiropractor will then assess whether you are a good candidate for chiropractic care.
If we think we can help your condition, we will conduct a thorough examination. In most cases, we do not require X-Rays, MRI scans or other imaging. However, if these tests are clinically indicated, we can refer you to the appropriate radiology centre.
Depending on your presentation, treatment may start on this visit. You should allow 45 minutes for your first visit.
The second visit - results of your tests
By the time you return for your second visit we will usually have the results of your tests. We will explain these results in a way that is easy to understand and give you a written report.
We will tell you what we have found, what we can do to help, how long it may take and how much it will cost. Our practice enjoys high levels of patient satisfaction because we explain everything in advance.
You should allow 30-40 minutes for your second visit.
As well as discussing your progress, follow-up visits will involve repeating a few important tests that showed up from your initial examination. This way so we can continue to monitor your improvement.
Treatment may involve spinal adjustments – these are gentle and specific movements to the spine and are performed differently depending on your age and type of spinal problem. Other techniques may include extremity adjusting, cranial adjusting, various muscle techniques and reflex stimulation.
You should allow 15-20 minutes for your regular visits
On some visits, we may need extra time to review your progress, use additional therapies (such as Cold Laser Therapy) or teach you home exercise programs. You should allow 15-30 minutes for a long visit.
