Going to any doctor’s office for the first time can be an anxious time for many, so your chiropractor and our team at Cedar Chiropractic & Physiotherapy are here to put you at ease and help you feel welcome and comfortable the moment you step through our door.
When you arrive for your Initial Visit with your Burnaby chiropractor, you will be greeted by our friendly team members. They will guide and assist you throughout your visit. You will meet with your chiropractor who will ask you questions in order to better understand your health challenges. If it appears that you would benefit from care, an examination will be done to determine the cause of your problems. The examination may include a postural analysis, functional testing, neurological tests, orthopedic testing, range of motion assessment and palpation.
Your chiropractor will then review your findings and give you his recommendations. In most cases, if you choose to, care can begin immediately following your examination. Care will be centered around restoring proper motion and mechanics to your joints. You may also be recommended a rehabilitative exercise program to facilitate your recovery. If a patient cannot be helped by chiropractic care, we will refer them to the proper professional that can. The total time for your Initial Visit is usually 1 hour 15 minutes.
Each subsequent visit, you will receive care that builds on the changes and improvements that have already taken place in your previous visits. As the cause of your problems has already been determined in your Initial Visit, these Subsequent Visits are typically fairly brief. Your adjustments are very specific so they usually only take about 15 minutes for your entire visit. Re-assessments are typically conducted around every 12 visits to assess how you are progressing and responding to care
