Your First Visit
Going to any doctor’s office for the first time can be an anxious time for many, so your friendly team at Cedar Chiropractic & Physiotherapy are here to put you at ease. We are here to put you at ease so you feel welcome and comfortable the moment you step into our clinic.
Our office is located in the vibrant North Burnaby Heights area on Hastings Street. When you arrive, you will be greeted by our pleasant clinic staff. They will assist and guide you throughout your time at our clinic. You will meet with your chiropractor for a detailed consultation as they ask you questions to better understand your challenges.
If it appears that you could benefit from care, an examination will be done to determine the cause of your problems. Your exam will involve looking at your posture, balance, muscle, joint and nervous systems to find out why it happened. Afterwards, your therapist will determine and discuss with you what is the best way to get you pain relief and feel alive again. Above all, we are here to get you back to doing the things you enjoy and that are important to you.
You will then receive a review of your findings as well as recommendations. In most cases, if you choose to, treatment can begin immediately following your examination. The focus of your treatments will be centered around restoring proper movement, motion and mechanics to your spine and joints. You may also be recommended a rehab program to aid you in your recovery. In the rare case that we feel you would not be a good candidate for care, we will refer you to the proper professional that can. The total time spent in our office is usually around 1 hour 15 minutes
As you start and continue your care, you will receive treatment that builds on the changes and improvements that have already taken place in your previous sessions. As the cause of your problems has already been determined, these sessions are typically fairly brief. A chiropractic adjustment is very specific so it usually only takes about 10-15 minutes for your entire stay. Re-assessments are usually completed every 10 visits or so to see how you are progressing and responding
The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a hand-held instrument that provides a controlled and fast thrust. By restoring proper movement, mechanics and motion to an affected joint and your spine, an adjustment functions to improve your body’s ability to heal itself more effectively.
The Activator protocol is used to determine exactly when to adjust, where to adjust and also when not to adjust. Most adjustments are delivered to specific areas in your spine. Also, the joints in your shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, feet and other parts of your body can be adjusted. Results will of course vary from patient to patient
The Choice Is Yours
Once your symptoms have stabilized and you are satisfied with your current level of health, you can simply give us a call to schedule an appointment whenever you need us again. Similarly, many choose to continue with wellness care to continue improving your overall life and well-being
The choice is always yours. How much treatment and for how long you wish to continue with chiropractic is always up to you
