WE UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL
In working with thousands of patients at East Coast Chiropractic, we’ve noticed there is a common thread – people want more. They want to be looked at as a whole person not just an aching part. They don’t want a quick fix band-aid, they want an actual long term solution that addresses the root problems. We believe that this is exactly how healthcare should be, and with the right care, the right guidance, and the right work ethic, health recovery is possible and you can live the vibrant life you deserve.
Our vision is to deliver the most advanced, thorough, and results driven neurospinal healthcare available on the east coast of Canada. We are constantly investing in ongoing education, diagnostic tools, care methodologies, and patient resources. Our commitment is to treat you like family, and provide everything we possibly can to help you get the results you are longing for.
It has become increasingly more difficult to heal in today’s age of chronic stress, sleep deprivation, technology addiction, poor food quality, and inadequate movement (among many other things). It’s for this reason a more robust approach is needed to achieve long term health. Our extremely in depth brain and body examination will give us a clear picture of the nature of your problems and how to best address them. Care varies based on the case, but always aims to achieve five core things 1) Restore and optimize dysfunctional neurological (brain) pathways 2) Restore structure of the spine 3) Restore movement and body control 4) Optimize metabolic health 5) Address key lifestyle strategies for long term success. We have worked hard to deliver this depth of care in a simple, “easy to use” format so you can be successful.
WHAT COULD YOUR STORY SAY?
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
What happens on the first visit and how long does it take?Your first appointment typically takes upwards of an hour. We will gather as much detail as possible about your past health, current health and goals for your health in the future. While every Examination is different based on the person and their specific problem, there are some core tests that give us big picture data about your health. These may include: Digital X-ray (if indicated), Digital Postural Analysis, Heart Rate Variability, Surface Electromyography, Oximetry, Blood Pressure, Lung Capacity, Spinal Movement, Spinal Stability, and of course, any case specific tests.
How many times will I have to come?
The short answer is, we don’t know. The frequency and number of visits in our patients’ programs vary greatly but are all based on the same three factors:
- the problem identified
- how much damage has occurred and how long it has been there
- your goals and objectives
We can answer this question in more detail after a Consultation and Examination.
How much will it cost?
Our Consultation, Examination and Case Review is $150 for adults and $100 for children. The regular checkup visits are $50 for adults and children. However, similar to the answer above, we can’t estimate a total program investment until a comprehensive Consultation and Examination has taken place. From here, we can give you a more in depth answer, coupled with payment options that fit your needs.
Once I start seeing a Chiropractor will I have to go forever?
No. You are in the driver’s seat and decide when your care starts and stops. There are no contracts here. Our Doctors will always give you the best recommendations for your health but will never pressure you into anything. You should consider Chiropractic care for as long as you want to have a spine and nervous system that performs at its best.
Does getting an adjustment hurt?
We use the most comfortable techniques possible at all times: gentle hands, drop piece tables, and hand held adjusting tools. Our goal is to work with your body, not against it. In many cases people experience immediate relief after an adjustment, especially if the spine has been restricted for a long time. The “popping” sound that is sometimes heard is air bubbles within your joints collapsing on themselves due to the change in joint pressure.
Is there a minimum age required for an examination?
There is no age restriction. In many cases, neuropsinal problems can develop early in life; as soon as birth in some cases. We can perform an in-depth Neuropsinal Examination at any age, it just looks quite different for a newborn or toddler compared to an adult! Similar to taking good care of your child’s teeth, it’s encouraged to have your child’s spine and nervous system evaluated as soon as possible, to make sure their body is functioning optimally.
Is it safe during pregnancy?
Absolutely. Both of our Doctors are trained in pregnancy specific techniques to ensure that your care is both safe and effective. We use custom pregnancy pillows that allow you to lay down on your belly comfortably so that you can be properly assessed and cared for. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has many benefits including keeping your body moving well, minimizing discomfort, and optimizing your body for the birth process and your postpartum recovery.
