First consultation and exam
After an intake interview, a photo series of your posture, and physical examination, the chiropractor will assess whether you are suitable for chiropractic care. In order to be able to assess your posture properly, you should take off your outer clothing. Of course we want you to feel comfortable, so you can keep your underwear on (sport clothing is ideal). You do not need to bring a towel.
Expect something totally different
Whether you are familiar with chiropractic care or whether this is your first time, you can expect your appointment at Embody Health to be new and different from any other healthcare experience you've had before. Maybe even life-changing?
To begin with, you don't need a referral from a doctor or a health insurance company to start chiropractic care. When we're open, you can walk in and schedule an appointment to be treated by a registered and licensed chiropractor at your convenience. We have a minimum waiting time and make sure that you can contact us as soon as possible. Before your first appointment we ask you to fill in our intake form so that the chiropractor has a good idea of your health history and your current needs. You will receive our intake form automatically by e-mail when your first appointment is booked.
During your first visit, your chiropractor will explain how subluxations (vertebrae that are not in the correct position) occur, how an adjustment ensures that these are corrected and what benefits chiropractic can offer you. If you have never had a treatment before, this is a great way to have all your questions answered by a professional and recognized chiropractor, so you know exactly what to expect. The chiropractor will answer all your questions and comments before you start the treatments.
