What to Expect

Your initial visits to Kensington Chiropractic for Health are all about getting to know you and your health concerns.

Your First Visit

One of our friendly staff members will greet you warmly at the front desk. You can download the new patient paperwork and complete it prior to your appointment or complete it when you arrive. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment if you choose to complete the paperwork in our office.

Please note that each patient requires four documents to be downloaded (1-Contact Information, 2-Health Questionnaire [appropriate one for the patient’s age], 3-Consent and 4-Office Policy).

New Patient Paperwork:

You will not need to change into a gown but plan on wearing comfortable clothes. Also, please bring the following to your appointment:

  • Names of any medications and supplements you are taking
  • A record of any surgeries or conditions
  • Any relevant reports or films

Consultation and Examination

Your initial appointment is 30-45 minutes in duration and consists of:

  • An evaluation of your overall health including an orthopaedic and neurological examination and spine and postural assessment.
  • An in-depth discussion of a plan for you and your family to obtain maximum benefits.
  • Treatment including chiropractic adjustment and soft tissue therapy.

We don’t take films here but will send you to get them taken if we feel they are necessary.

Your Second Visit

When you return, we will review our report of findings with you. This will take 20 minutes and will include a detailed explanation of your personal case history, including what is happening with you health-wise. If we believe imaging and an assessment of that are warranted, we will go over all of that with you. We’ll then discuss what we think a plan of treatment should be.

Levels of Care

There are different levels of care available to you at Kensington Chiropractic for Health. If you have an acute condition and pain is your primary concern, then we’re going to address that. There are a number of benefits in the approach to wellness care to maintain your nervous system, as it’s what communicates with your body.

Whichever care you choose, we are very thorough and particular about explaining what to expect and what’s going to happen with your care. The decision to proceed with care is ultimately up to you, of course. Nothing will be done without your consent.

Special Appointments

We offer patients special appointments as an important component of their care. They are included in care (there is no cost), and we would love to welcome your family and friends. They include information about chiropractic, health, and how to take better care of your spine.
