York Chiropractor First Visit

Welcome to Chiropractic 1st

New Patient Forms

Please download, print, and complete these forms so you can bring them with you to your first visit:

New Patient Form for Children (0 – 5 years old)

New Patient Form for Youth (6 – 15 years old)

When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our friendly CA’s (chiropractic assistants). After filling out your admitting paper work we will show you a short video introducing you to chiropractic. You will then meet Dr. Arleen Scholten.

Consultation & Examination

The purpose of your consultation with the chiropractor is to discuss your health goals and find out if chiropractic is the solution. A thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem. If we find we cannot help we will refer you to the appropriate person.

Surface EMG

We utilize an advanced chiropractic technology, called Surface EMG, that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. This technology gives us (and you) an objective assessment.

Surface Electromyography measures the minute amounts of electrical energy in the muscles along your spine. Subluxations disturb the function of the nervous system. This can produce too much or too little electrical activity in your muscles. We use this highly-accurate, non-invasive scan to document your progress. It’s more accurate than how you feel.

You will be asked to wear a gown for this visit which is provided by the practice. Please allow one hour for this visit.

Your Second Visit

Report of findings

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll make recommendations designed to help you get and keep your health. We call this the Report of Findings.

This is usually attended to on your second visit, which may be later the same day or the following day. This two-visit approach accomplishes several things:

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information

In certain circumstances we make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.

Please allow 30 minutes for this visit.

Regular Visits

After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.

In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognise your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimise the impact on your busy life.

If you think that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, call Chiropractic 1st to arrange a thorough examination in our practice.
