My goal as a healthcare provider is to assist patients in the recovery and maintenance of your physical health.
Care is provided for both acute issues (immediate injury from perhaps bending or lifting incorrectly) and for chronic aches and pains (headaches, or age related ailments such as arthritis). Chiropractic care is for students, homemakers, office workers, professionals, labourers, casual and competitive athletes, seniors and retired.
Because of the diversity of healthcare in general and chiropractic specifically; the information on this website is intended to be only an introduction to chiropractic healthcare as offered by this office. If you are in need of more specific information, please contact the office by using the "Ask a Question..." link; calling or emailing me; I will address your inquiries personally.
Pre-booking appointments is appreciated as it allows for proper allocation of required time slots as New Patients and Reevaluations require a longer booking time. Walk-ins are welcome, however pre-scheduled appointments are given priority.
Initial/ NEW PATIENT visit: $95. The initial visit begins with the completion of the appropriate paperwork and includes taking a health history, examination, explanation, Q/A session, and treatment (if appropriate). Referral for x-rays will be made if necessary. Depending on the complexity of the condition(s) the duration of the initial session typically ranges between 30 and 60 minutes.
Subsequent/ RETURN visit(s): $60. Sessions require less time and are usually 15 to 30 minutes.
The frequency and number of visits are determined by various factors such as the type of condition, the severity of the condition, the age and body habitus you present with along with your other general health factors. Patients appreciate that healing is a process happening over a duration of time (and not an instant event.) Lasting improvements are achieved with only time and persistence (think healing a cut, learning a new skill, losing weight, and/ or achieving the fitness level to run long distance). You are educated about your condition such that you then can decide what type of treatment to pursue. Patients are not obligated or contracted into chiropractic treatment at this office and are encouraged to make their own best healthcare choice(s).
Many patients choose to continue with chiropractic care to help maintain improvement and minimize relapses; similar to having regular dental check-ups. The decision of how long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care at this office is always up to you, the patient.
