At Cascadia Chiropractic Centre, we strive to make your visit to our office an experience. The procedures and systems we have in place allow us to be very thorough when assessing your need for care.
Upon entering our office, a member of our front office team will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Next, you will have a consultation with our doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for the doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care or other services can meet your goals.
After your consultation, the doctor will perform a very thorough and complete examination of your spine and areas of concern. These exams consist of standard neurological, orthopaedic, postural and physical tests. A computerized muscle examination, computerized range of motion test, and computerized foot; gait and balance examination may also be expected. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
X-rays may be taken depending on your age and specific situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time of accumulative injuries that may have been involved in your spine. In some cases, it may alert us of any serious hidden health conditions. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail at your Report of Findings.
Once all necessary examinations are performed and the information is collected, the doctor will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
At the conclusion of your report of findings, you will be experiencing your first treatment. The treatment utilized will be dependent on the specific needs of the patient for the fastest and most effective results. This may include chiropractic spinal adjustments, shockwave therapy, and/or any of the many treatment options we have available. Treatment is interactive, so we encourage you to express concerns about the different style of treatments at anytime.
