What to Expect
Your First Visit
Upon your arrival at Markham Chiropractic Centre, you will be warmly greeted by one of our front desk team. We will provide you with our new patient paperwork, and can provide additional assistance as needed. We will also provide you with a sign-in device in the form of a card or a key fob.
We will then show you to the examination room to meet your doctor.
You can also find our new patient forms at the bottom of this page. Feel free to fill these out at home and bring the completed forms in with you to your first appointment.
The purpose of this first visit is for your doctor to get to know you. Once you have completed your new patient paperwork, you will meet with your doctor to discuss your medical history and your current health concerns.
Your consultation will be followed up by a scan of your neck and spine, called a surface EMG. This allows our doctors to understand your condition in even greater detail, as it highlights the areas of your body that require special attention.
This will be followed by your first adjustment.
Duration: 30 – 40 minutes
Your Second Visit
When you come in for your second visit, you will have a more in-depth discussion about your condition with your doctor, and will learn more about the doctor’s recommended care plan. You will also receive your second adjustment.
Our goal is for you to leave this appointment with a solid understanding of what is happening to your body and of how we can help. To this end, we will send you home with a folder of information, including a Chiropractic Techniques information sheet and a copy of your scan.
Duration: 15 minutes
You can expect all subsequent visits to be approximately 5-10 minutes in length.
