Your second visit will start with a 1 hour presentation by the doctors at The Spinal Garage which will outline what chiropractic is and what chiropractic is not, stages of degeneration, basic anatomy, physiology, neuroanatomy, chiropractic science, current health care in Canada and how chiropractic adjustments work. Most importantly, we want to educate you and your spouse/support person so you have the tools to make the best possible decision towards your health.
Following this, your doctor will take you and your spouse into a private report room and show you the results of your examination.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your chiropractor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Your chiropractor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs and health goals.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include a spinal adjustment and management recommendations for after your adjustment until your next visit. Treatment is interactive and tailored to you and your needs, so you can express concerns or ask questions about the different styles of treatment anytime. We are here for you and expect miracles!
Prior to leaving, your doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
