What you should expect from a visit at Sante Chiropractic Wellness Centre
Visit One: The Initial Chiropractic Assessment
Step 1 – You’ll be asked to complete a health care questionnaire that will allow us to uncover previous and current health challenges as well as get an overview of your lifestyle.
Step 2– Our chiropractic health assistant will review your health questionnaire with you and gather any additional information we need to address your current health problems or concerns.
Step 3– You’ll receive a state of the art Neuro-Spinal Scan to detect any interferences on your nervous system. It will evaluate imbalances in the muscles and how your autonomic nervous—organ function—is working. The scans will allow us to detect interferences that you aren’t even feeling—because only 10% of the nervous system perceives pain.
Step 4 – The doctor will do a full chiropractic evaluation on you that will include a posture assessment to determine any postural imbalances that can create stress on your body. The doctor will also do a palpation of your spine to uncover areas of subluxations—misalignments of the spine that may cause interference on your nervous system and cause a lower state of health.
Step 5 – At this point the Doctor will decide whether or not spinal x-rays are required. In most cases they are, for x-rays are crucial in the detection of subluxation decay (arthritis) in the spine. The x-rays provide a blueprint of your spine and will help us decide on the best type of care for you.
Step 6- It is very important for us that you understand the findings of your exam before the doctor provides you with a diagnosis. Therefore, you will be asked to watch a video, referred to as the Doctor’s Report Presentation. The health assistant will provide you with a url link so that you can watch the video in the comfort of your own home. Please note that the video must be watched before the doctor explains your results, as understanding chiropractic care is a necessary step towards a pain free, healthy life.
Visit Two: The Chiropractic Report of Findings
Step 1– After watching the presentation, the doctor will review your findings with you. The doctor will explain the results of your Nervous System Scan and X-rays. You will also be educated on the short and long term effects of subluxation.
Step 2 – After the explanation of your results, you will receive your first Chiropractic adjustment.
Step 3 – You’re done! It’s time to book your next appointment, where the doctor will go over more specific recommendations for your care (i.e. recommended amount of visits, payment options etc.) and you’ll receive your second chiropractic adjustment.
Visit Three: Your Wellness Care Recommendations
Step 1- After receiving your second chiropractic adjustment the doctor will go over her recommendations with you. Recommendations are based on each individual case. Wellness Care plans include multiple chiropractic adjustments, a midway reassessment, a final assessment, and cervical traction.
Step 2- Decide whether you would like to sign up for a Wellness Care plan or pay per visit and then book your next appointment.
