What to Expect at Innate Chiropractic & Wellness Centre

Kitsilano and Vancouver chiropractic office.

Welcome to Innate Chiropractic & Wellness Centre!

Your First Visit

We always recommend that you arrive about 10 minutes early for your first appointment, just so that you have some time to relax and fill out any necessary paperwork. If you’ve had X-rays taken previously bring them along, or arrange to have copies sent to us beforehand.

Our amazing chiropractic assistant, Tracy, will greet you when you arrive, help you with any of your paperwork and answer any questions that you may have.

Consultation

After the paperwork is completed and your questions are answered, you’ll be escorted back to a private room to meet with me. I will take a comprehensive health history, which will include:

  • Where you’ve been with your health issues
  • Where you want to be
  • What it is that’s bothering you the most
  • How your problem affects your activities of daily living

This initial consultation is designed so that I can learn more about you, your condition and your expectations. This will help to determine if chiropractic care can meet your goals.

Examination

Next, I will conduct a series of non-invasive orthopedic, chiropractic, postural and neurological tests to help determine the cause of your problem. If you experience pain during the testing, please relay this information to me immediately, as your comfort is always my priority.

If any additional blood work is required or X-rays needed, you will be referred to a reliable outside source at this time.

Report of Findings

This is the part you’ve been waiting for! I will present you with my diagnosis and will answer the questions you came in with:

  • What’s wrong?
  • Can you help me?
  • How long will it take?
  • What exactly will be done?

Dr. Nand will answer any questions you have before, during and after your adjustment.

First Adjustment

If additional clinical information or X-rays aren’t required, you’ll receive your very first chiropractic adjustment. It will be my purpose to gently adjust areas in your spine that are fixated, not moving well or out of alignment

By gentle hands-on adjustment, I’ll be able to return motion to the joints of your spine and achieve alignment, which will start to alleviate your pain. Sometimes I use a hand-held instrument called an Activator, which is used to activate the receptors in the nerves and to stimulate the tendons and ligaments, encouraging muscular relaxation. I will demonstrate the use of the Activator on the palm of your hand so that you can see how it feels beforehand.

I always put your comfort first. I adjusts infants as young as two days old to seniors into their 90’s. I’ll initially start with what I think is appropriate for you. My goal is to get you out of pain quickly! If you’re at all uncomfortable, always let me know as I have a repertoire of treatment techniques available to best suit your needs.

Continued Care

Chiropractic care keeps your spine healthy, your nervous system functioning optimally and prevents degeneration. Does this mean that you have to see a chiropractor for the rest of your life? Of course you don’t have to.
It’s true that many chiropractic patients choose to continue their care on some type of periodic basis simply because they enjoy feeling good. Others struggle to combat the stresses of daily life, such as long work hours or excessive sitting on the job, and find that their spinal biomechanics greatly improve with maintenance treatment.
The choice is always yours!
