What to Expect on your visit to Arundell Avenue Chiropractic
A warm welcome is number one on our list; we know only too well that you are likely to be a little apprehensive at your first visit to our office; not knowing what to expect can often make any of us a little nervous. However, the moment you enter our warm, friendly environment you will be made to feel totally at ease. Our experienced team will do whatever it takes to ensure that your visit with us is a pleasant one.
First visit as a new patient is a 30 minute appointment.
When you arrive the first thing we'll do is to prepare your file and establish a detailed history of your overall health. Next your Chiropractor will perform a thorough examination and a series of tests. Then, only if necessary for your condition, your Chiropractor may also refer you for x-rays to provide more detailed information. Combining all this information gives us a clearer picture to be able to deliver the best possible recommendations for you.
If chiropractic care is the right choice for you, your Chiropractor may give you your first adjustment right away. You can be confident that, before this happens, we'll talk to you about your proposed care, the available alternatives and any potential risks associated with our recommendations. The more you understand about the chiropractic process, the better the results are likely to be. We'll also talk to you about our recommendations for your follow-up appointment and future care.
On your second visit to our office, your Chiropractor will discuss with you how you responded to your first adjustment; this gives vital information on where you are in your healing process and further recommendations as to the most appropriate treatment frequency and actions to take in correcting your condition. You will have the opportunity to question and discuss your case and communicate your health goals so we can understand your priorities.
The second visit and subsequent visits are usually 15 minutes.
