If you're a first-time visitor at McGuffin Smith Chiropractic, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A little bit of paperwork
We will need to complete forms that provide general information about you and your condition. We will be happy to assist you with the paperwork.
During your first consultation with the doctor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You will also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint the problem, the doctor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Patients will generally receive their first adjustment on the same day after examination is performed. With the exeption of a patient needing to be referred for special imaging (MRI or xray).
Before leaving, you will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
We recommend a follow up visit to see how the patient has excepted the first adjustment and get the report of the exam findings. We work our adjustments around your
schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days of their initial visit. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
