Before you arrive
Each new patient appointment begins with a thorough exam and history so we can design a custom treatment plan
Consultation & History
Before your first visit, we ask that you please fill out brief intake forms online prior to your appointment.
You will be asked to arrive at our office about 15 minutes early to get checked in with our chiropractic assistants.
In the treatment room, your chiropractic physician (Dr. Coleshaw or Dr. Cronk) will take you through an in-depth health history, listening to your concerns, questions, and goals. This will help to determine the cause of your condition and if chiropractic care may benefit you.
Report of Finding
Once all the information has been gathered and examinations have been performed, your chiropractor will discuss with you the findings. The doctors will explain the suspected cause of your condition, your individual treatment recommendations, and your prognosis. They will answer all of your questions or concerns and provide you with the information that is necessary to help in the management of your condition.
If it has been determined that chiropractic care will be of benefit and you wish to continue with treatment, your doctor will discuss and obtain your written informed consent to care.
Treatments may include:
- Manual adjustments
- Instrument assisted adjustments
- Soft-tissue techniques
- Rehabilitative exercises
- Education and lifestyle recommendations
- Low-level laser therapy
- Spinal decompression
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are chiropractors covered by extended health benefits?
Q. Do you direct bill to extended insurance?
Q. Do you accept ICBC cases?
Q. Do I need a referral from my family doctor?
Q. What do I need to bring on my first visit?
Q. Is there parking available?
Q. What does an adjustment feel like?
Q. What is the cracking sound and do I have to get cracked?
A. Some chiropractic adjustments cause a cracking sound. This happens because, when a joint is adjusted, there is a release of gas pressure which can cause a "pop". The purpose of an adjustment is to normalize the movement and alignment of the joint.
If we determine joint adjustments would benefit you, we will recommend it as part of your treatment plan. If you prefer, we can use other effective techniques (like mobilizations, instrument adjusting and/or stretching).
