What to expect in a session


In your first consult we will take a full case history in order to better understand and locate the cause of your pain. We will then do a series of orthopaedic and neurological tests as well as examine your posture, gait and movement of your joints. Once your examination is complete we will discuss the results with you and come up with the best treatment plan for you.

Further investigative studies

If required, further investigative studies, such as ultrasound, x-ray or a blood work up, can be done. If we feel that chiropractic treatment is not likely to help you, you will be referred to the correct medical professional for further assessment.
