Understanding your problem begins with your health history, including any previous accidents or injuries. This information is very important in determining the underlying cause of your health concern. You may complete the questionnaires in the office or download the forms below and bring them along.

Your First Appointment
Everyone at Pure-Health is committed to making your visit a comfortable and rewarding experience. After your forms are completed you will meet your doctor. If you are unfamiliar with chiropractic the doctor will take a few moments to explain what he/she will be looking for in their chiropractic examination. The doctor will then review your health history, including all past injuries, persistent problems, and any current symptoms. The doctor will also inquire about your health goals for the future i.e. increased flexibility, returning to a favorite sport, decreased pain at work etc.
The doctor will complete a thorough, painless physical examination — postural, orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic.
If x-rays are necessary, they will be recommended at this point. (If you have an Ontario health card there is no fee for the Xrays)
Follow Up Appointment
Once the examination is complete, your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to report the results of your examination, review your X-ray findings with you and discuss the cause of your symptoms. Patients are always shown their own x-rays and are encouraged to ask questions.
Then, if chiropractic care is advisable, the doctor will recommend a course of treatment. Treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, stretches and/or strengthening exercises. Progress reports are scheduled in order to monitor the progress that is expected.
If the doctor believes that chiropractic cannot help you, he/she will recommend an alternate course of action.
We are looking forward to meeting you and getting you on the road to health!
