Yes. Chiropractic is widely recognised as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of muscle and joint complaints. Although Chiropractic treatment has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with care from an Emkiro Toronto Chiropractor, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following Chiropractic treatment.
A Chiropractor undergoes at least four years of professional study following an undergraduate university degree. Doctors of Chiropractic also must pass national and provincial board examinations.
A Doctor of Chiropractic practices a drug-free, hands-on approach to health that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. An Emkiro Toronto Chiropractor is specially trained to recommend rehabilitative exercises, nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.
No. A referral is not necessary to be assessed or treated by a Chiropractor. However, we welcome patients who have been referred to a Chiropractor by their family doctor.
The initial chiropractic assessment consists of a thorough health history and focused physical examination that helps the Chiropractor identify factors influencing a patient’s health. The Chiropractor will then review therapies that may be used in the treatment plan. Chiropractic patients may ask their chiropractor any questions they have. A chiropractic treatment is also performed on the first visit, unless further diagnostic tests are needed. The typical chiropractic initial assessment takes between 40 and 60 minutes.
Patients should bring comfortable clothing that allows the Chiropractor easy access to the area of concern.
The majority of Chiropractic patients who come into Emkiro do not require x-rays to have their conditions treated effectively. X-rays are occasionally ordered by a Chiropractor in order to rule out serious conditions.
Every case is different; however, Chiropractic patients typically notice an improvement after the first few treatments. Your Emkiro Toronto Chiropractor will assess progress and review the treatment plan during every patient visit.
Following the initial exam, the Chiropractor will inform the patient of the extent of treatment recommended and how long it can be expected to last. The goal of the Chiropractor is to resolve pain, restore function, and reduce incidences of recurrence.
Yes. The majority of Toronto workers have partial or full coverage for Chiropractic through their workplace health plans. OHIP does not cover these services. The chiropractic patient is provided with a detailed itemised receipt listing the services provided, the credentials of the Emkiro Toronto Chiropractor, as well as payment details for reimbursement.
One of the most crucial parts of a successful chiropractic treatment plan is what the patient does outside of the clinic. That is why exercise rehabilitation is a key element of treatment by a Chiropractor at Emkiro.
