What is a Chiropractor?
Doctors of Chiropractic attend 8 years of college in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and pain. Their 2 forms of treatment, Spinal Manipulation and Exercise, have been recognized in the last decades of research as the most effective approach for mechanical neck and back pain.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will be so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
How do I make an appointment?
You can get in touch by phone (360-734-9555) or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, physiotherapists can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However most health insurers require a doctors referral before they authorise cover of fees, some only require a phone call.
Treatment duration depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, and other factors. Re-evaluations will be done to assess your progress and your therapist communicates with your physician to help you achieve your therapy goals.
