The first visit
The first visit usually takes about 45 minutes and includes the visit with the orthopaedic, an electromyography exam, and the visit with your chiropractor.
After the first exams, we will have all the necessary information to understand best how to help you. If more exams are required at this point, we will let you know.
The first part of the visit is a control visit with one of our orthopaedic doctors. During this visit, a medical history will be taken, and a history of your current complaint.
This visit is very important as it enables us to collect all the necessary information in order to provide you with the best care possible.
The visit begins with an open conversation with the chiropractor about the reason for your visit, in order to understand how to provide the best care for you.
For this part of the visit, the patient will need to get undressed, please remember to wear appropriate underwear, or under clothes in which you will feel comfortable. (leggings, gym shorts etc.)
In this part of the exam, using a number of tests, we will be able to understand how your nervous system is functioning and controlling the rest of your body, especially your musculoskeletal system. This will allow us to find out the best way to help your body get back into equilibrium.
Any other exams required at this stage if necessary, such as x-rays or MRI, will be recommended after this visit.
Using a computer programme, we will evaluate your posture, and how this could be contributing to your condition.
This exam will show us how the muscles of the spine are functioning, and whether or not they are in balance. This allows us to better understand where there may be irritation to your nervous system occurring.
After the first visit, we will have all of the necessary information to understand your problem better. In some cases, other exams will be requested if necessary.
Your chiropractor will explain the next steps of the process, and book in the report of findings visit.
Second visit: Report of findings
