When you enter our office, we will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your current challenges.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Marie-Claude Lambert or Dr Craig Hindson to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential care options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your current health challenges, expectations and goals and to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Marie-Claude Lambert or Dr Craig Hindson, will perform a complete chiropractic examination. This includes testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.
Depending on our findings, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective care plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, one of our doctors will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
1. How can you help me?
2. How often do I need to come in?
3. What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, our Doctors will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Marie-Claude Lambert will provide the best chiropractic and wellness program for your needs.
Chiropractic care in our office is anchored around the use of a chiropractic adjustments which are designed to normalize spinal imbalance and nerve system function. "Homework" to help your chiropractic adjustment to "hold" for longer and longer periods of time may include exercises, stretching, traction and looking at daily activity and nutritional levels.
Later in your care, the doctor may will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of the chiropractic office. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good nerve system communication and improved spinal function through better spinal alignment, a healthy diet, exercise, and maintaining a more productive mental state.
