Your First Visit


Patient Forms

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will  welcome you and explain all that needs to be done on your first visit.  We will request that you complete our patient forms located in the New Patient Center. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.


Consultation

Next, you will have a consultation with Mark Swain to discuss your  spinal health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Mark Swain to learn more about you, your condition, and  expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.


Examination

After your consultation, Mark Swain will perform a complete spinal examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing  will be done in our office  without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may request X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop  the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. 


Report of Findings

Once the information is collected  and examinations are performed, Mark Swain will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:

  1. How can you help me?
  2. How often do I need to come in?
  3. What  will  my treatment  cost?

After reviewing your health history, goals, and examination findings and X-rays, Mark Swain will discuss recommendations and notify you if  your condition requires care with other health care providers.   Mark Swain  will  provide the best treatment and restorative care program for your needs.


Treatment

 At the conclusion of your report of findings, you can choose to  experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, Cox Flexion decompression, and/or soft tissue therapy.  Treatment is interactive and every thing will be explained before hand, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment  anytime.


Spinal self care and back4life workshop

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I came to Dr. Swain with left sided sciatica that would not go away. I had tried pills and physio, had x-rays and a CT scan but nothing help. Dr. Swain diagnosed a disc herniation and began Flexion Decompression therapy, within a week my pain was 50% better. By 3 weeks I was pain free and getting back to my life!"
    LL North Bay, ON
