Your First Chiropractic Appointment
What to Expect
Your first visit is dedicated to determining what your health goals are and how you can best achieve them in the most effective and efficient way possible.
We want to know what your challenges have been and where you would like to be. We will work with you to develop a chiropractic care program specific to your needs.
Why You're Here
We want to know more than just your symptoms. We want to know how these symptoms are impacting your day-to-day life.
Your Health History
We’ll discuss your health history thoroughly.
Create a Plan
You’ll work with your chiropractor to develop a treatment plan that not only supports your goals, but works with your lifestyle too.
You’ll get your first treatment the very same day.
Every Time You Come See Us
Your visits will always take place in a private room. Your case is kept strictly confidential, unless it is determined by yourself and your Chiropractor that you can benefit from treatment with another practitioner here at the Chiropractic Health Centre.
We aim to make every visit comfortable for you by keeping the lines of communication open at all times. Your chiropractor will talk you through what she’s doing, how she’s doing it, and what you should expect to feel.
All treatment plans, health choices and even treatments in progress can be ended at any time by you, the patient. If at any point in time you don’t want to move forward with a treatment, you are always welcome to say, “That’s enough for today” or end your entire plan.

What is a Chiropractic maintenance plan?
How do you determine how many visits I'll need for treatment?
You will always want to choose a chiropractor whose aim is to help relieve your pain in as few visits as possible, and who will continue to evaluate your progress at every visit so that you avoid going in more often than you need to. The aim should always be to achieve initial pain relief, and then to develop a plan that will allow you to continue to maintain that relief on your own so that your pain doesn’t come back.
How long are Chiropractic appointments?
Appointment lengths can vary from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the kind of practice it is: some have a simple ‘show up, get adjusted and leave’ set up that is perfect for people who know what they like to have done and can benefit for a quick visit. OOthers encourage much longer visits where follow-up and feedback are important, and a relationship can be fully developed. This secondary type of appointment is appropriate for people who are looking to have a dedicated chiropractor follow their progress.
