3. How long does it take to see results from chiropractic treatments?

Recovery rates from pain and injury are as individual as you are. Some patients may feel immediate relief after a single treatment, while others might notice improvements after a couple weeks of treatment. It comes down to your diagnosis as well as a number of factors relating to that diagnosis. We pride ourselves on a patient-centered approach, continuously adapting our therapeutic focus to ensure you outcomes are exceptional.

4. Will I need X-rays?

We use a case-by-case approach when it comes to x-rays and any other diagnostic imaging or testing. Not all situations require imaging; however, if your history and physical examination suggest it might be beneficial to have such testing for the management of your condition, our chiropractic team can provide a requisition to obtain x-rays at the NSHA diagnostic imaging facility of your choosing at no cost to you. Findings of these radiographs will be discussed thoroughly at your next appointment following those x-rays.

5. Do I need a referral from a physician to see a chiropractor?

No, a referral is not a necessity to receive treatment from a chiropractor. Acess to health services for diagnosis and treatment of conditions quickly is an essential component for effective pain and injury management. Also, as primary healthcare professionals in Canada, chiropractic care does not require a referral for your private health benefits to cover claims for your chiropractic care. You are able to make an appointment with our chiropractors directly and without delay.
