On your first visit you will be greeted and run through a health history. The health history includes paperwork that outlines what you may be experiencing physically, past health concerns, and anything that you may want one of our practitioners to know. After you are done the paperwork an examination will follow. This is where the practitioner will decide what the treatment plan is, what your condition is, how long it will take to get you to your health goal, and the first treatment.
What should I bring to the first and subsequent visit?
For the first visit youshould bring your Manitoba Health Card. If you have any concerns with the lower back, shoulder, ankles, or knees please bring a pair of shorts to your appointment so we can better serve you. We also accept cash, debit, master card, and credit card.
Who is a potential chiropractic patient?
We believe everyone of all shapes and sizes is a potential chiropractic patient. We are here to help those who are currently experiencing pain, have chronic pain, those who are looking to optimize their health, and people who are wanting to be preventative with their health. We take care of a lot of families which range from newborns all the way up to senios. We use different techniques and equipment for different ages and sizes, it is never a one size fits all treatment.
What is the importance of maintenance?
Maintenance is very important because it allows us to check up on how your body is responding to care and to your environmental stress. We find that every person has a different level of maintenance which includes frequency of visits, amount of rehab, and treatment options. A patient usually reaches maintenance once their primary condition is resolved or is looking to prevent anything from reoccuring or occurring in the first place.
What techniques do you practice?
We use a variety of techniques that we apply specifically for each and every one of our patients. Diversified, Motion Palpation, Thompson Drop, and Advanced Muscle Palpation are the manual techniques we use. Activator is a non manual approach of analysis and adjusting (this is a technique we use on some kids and those who would prefer a less aggressive approach). We also utilize the Webster technique which Dr. Okabe is certified in which is used as a specific technique for pregnant women.
