Frequently Asked Questions
I don’t live near your practice. How can I work with you?
Great question! Virtual appointments are now available to anyone in Ontario. You may also work with me through an online program for women with back pain. Reach out for more details.
What can I expect during my first visit?
Our work starts before you come in, beginning with the intake forms and the discovery call.
The intake forms contain a lot of great information that helps me adjust the course of care to make sure you are getting the best treatment possible. This needs to be filled out, preferably as soon as you receive the forms, but at least one or two days before your initial assessment. I know these forms are long and time consuming, but I promise that the more information I know about you and your health, the better I can customize your treatment.
The discovery call takes place virtually. This is where we can chat before you even book an initial assessment.
Wear loose or stretchy comfortable clothing. Arrive on time or early to your appointment so we can get started right away.
Your first visit will be an initial assessment. I will take a detailed history and do a physical exam to determine the diagnosis. This helps me to create a custom treatment plan for you. The examination may include range of motion, neurological assessment, orthopedic assessment, and chiropractic assessment, as well as other assessments specific to you. Although the assessment is the focus of this appointment, I will provide a little bit of treatment provided there is time as well as give you some at-home care you can do between appointments. I may also recommend some products for self-care or recommend you to other practitioners if warranted.
Sometimes it is indicated that x-rays, CT scan, MRI, or diagnostic ultrasound may be needed to further investigate your condition. If they are required, you will know at your appointment. If you have any recent imaging or reports, please bring them in to your first appointment.
When you arrive, please take off your shoes at the front and sign in at the front desk (follow the instructions on the sign). Please note that we do not have reception or a telephone number and to keep the process streamlined and efficient, the entire process is done online. Check in on your device by scanning the code on the sign at the desk or visiting the website listed. I’ll be out to greet you once you have checked in!
Come in with an open mind and determination to get better. Mindset is very important for healing! I look forward to meeting you!
I am ready to tackle my chronic pain! How can I book?
Congratulations on taking the first step towards amazing health! The rewards are so worth it!
If you haven’t already, I suggest booking a free Discover Call Consultation here first. This gives you an idea of whether working together is the right path for you at this time.
If you have already done this, then you are ready for the initial assessment which can also be booked here. In the meantime while you wait for your appointment, if you haven’t done so already, join my FREE Facebook group here along with other amazing women like you also trying to manage their chronic pain! Did I mention there’s tonnes of free content in there?!
Does my insurance cover your services?
In-clinic chiropractic services are covered by most benefit plans in Ontario. You must check with your own insurance company and plan before booking an appointment. We do not provide direct billing so you will pay at the time of your service and submit yourself. Some insurance companies are now accepting virtual care so check with yours before booking.
