What to Expect at Our Office

Welcome New Practice Members!

We are thrilled to have you joining our community and are ready to create an integrated care plan uniquely designed for you. Your journey with us begins with two visits.

Additional Office Forms

Stress Test (Optional)

Your First Visit

Book Online: Make your Initial Visit appointment and complete your New Practice Member intake forms online.

If you prefer paper forms: Please come 15 minutes early for your appointment to complete the paper version of the health history forms. The chiropractor will use this information to create your customized care plan.

Please also review our Office Policies, 5 Guarantees, and What We Expect From You and What You Can Expect From Our Office, and review and sign the Consent Forms. Plan to spend 45-60 minutes at our office during this visit.

Consultation: You will meet with the doctor to review your health history as well to create your vision of ideal living.

Nerve Scan: For a description of this exam, please click here: Overview of the Nerve Scan Procedures. If you have questions, just ask. One of the main rules here at Gibsons Chiropractic Health Centre is that the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask, so … ask away! Your understanding of the AMAZING healing power of your body will greatly improve your results.

Examination: WHEW! You will not be prodded, poked, or pricked like a pin cushion. You will receive a Comprehensive Chiropractic Examination which aides the chiropractic doctor in understanding the cause of your health challenge(s) and to create your customized Care Plan.

X-rays: It may be necessary to take x-rays of your spine to determine the severity and complexity of the subluxation complex that is causing your problems and to rule out any pathology.

You will be referred to your medical doctor for the x-rays if they are required. To see is to know; not to see is to guess. Our doctors will NOT guess about your health!

Adjustment: You will be checked for subluxations, and if present, you’ll get adjusted.

Your Second Visit

Report of Findings: During your second visit, the chiropractic doctor will share what he/she discovered about your health based on your Consultation, Exams, Scans, and X-Rays (if they were taken). From there, he/she will provide your customized Care Plan, which is the route for regaining and keeping your health.

Plan to spend 20-30-minutes at our office during this visit. All other visits last about 15-minutes. We fully embrace that you do not live to get adjusted but rather get adjusted to FULLY LIVE!!

Adjustment: You will be checked for vertebral subluxation, and if present, you’ll get adjusted. It’s as simple as that.

We are honoured to partner with you for optimum living! You’ve done the hardest thing already…you’ve got here! It’s smooth sailing for you from this point, and you’re in the right place.

Care after the Care Plan

Many of our patients continue to come for maintenance and wellness care in order to stay at the level of optimal health their care plan had brought them to.

Dr. Stacey thinks of it as going to the gym: “It’s like when you’ve gone to the gym so many times, and worked really hard to get fit; it’s much easier to maintain that healthy body than to wait to get out shape and start all over again.”

Whatever it is that brings you in our door we are happy to see you and ready to help you!
