Consultation - Follow-up

How does the first consultation go?

The first chiropractic consultation begins with a interview. Thanks to a questionnaire, your chiropractor takes note of your health status (known illness, current treatment, etc.), your medical and surgical history, your family risks and your lifestyle. If you are consulting for pain, this questionnaire allows you to provide important details that will help find the cause of the pain.

The first meeting with your chiropractor is an opportunity for you to express your health goals.

Following the interview, the chiropractor proceeds to an examination (postural, orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic), an analysis of medical images, if you have any in your possession. 

At the end of this examination, your chiropractor will present you with the results of his analysis. From the first appointment your chiropractor begins the care.

The consultation ends with recommendations for therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.

These recommendations and therefore your investment are essential for your health!

The number of visits and the length of follow-up will depend on your health status and the objectives of the treatment.

How do I prepare for my first consultation?

- Allow 1 hour. 

- Have recent tests available (blood tests, MRI, X-rays, etc.). 

- If the consultation takes place at your home, think about heating the room, you will be more relaxed. 

Chiropractic follow-up: three different phases!

The first phase

This phase corresponds to beginning of the chiropractic treatment. The objectives of the follow-up are defined with the patient. Often the patient is looking for relief from pain, elimination of symptoms, restoration of better mobility. Your chiropractor will try to identify the causes and aggravating factors of your condition. At this stage Your chiropractor works on the "major blockages" in the spine, joints and tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, visceres) that are injured or dysfunctional. In addition to the treatment, the chiropractor can give you advice and exercises . A short interval between sessions is preferable.  

The second phase or stabilization phase

There is an improvement in the biomechanics of the body, we can observe a better mobility, a better muscle tone, an improvement of the symptoms, a relief of the pain. The objective is to maintain the new balance which is still fragile

The third phase or follow-up in prevention

The interest of preventive care is to achieve an optimal state of health and to prevent health problems related to poor * spinal hygiene. Your chiropractor will try to identify in your life habits, your family history,the risk factors for your health. He will work on the biomechanics of the body by adjusting subluxations or blockages in the spine, joints and tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, viscera etc.). The chiropractor will be able to advise you for your general well-being. The interval between sessions is defined with the patient to best meet his or her needs .

*In chiropractic, good spinal hygiene means good spinal alignment and optimal spinal mobility.
