What to Expect on Your First Chiropractic Care Visit?

During your first visit, Dr. Petermann will analyze your medical history to determine the root cause of your condition and conduct a thorough initial examination of your symptoms, muscle/joint biomechanics, and gait to determine a working diagnosis. He will then create an individualized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns and goals.

Chiropractic care involves non-invasive spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment, corrective exercises, and other therapeutic techniques to improve body function and reduce pain. Dr. Petermann will also provide you with valuable tips on how to prevent potential injuries, maintain good posture, and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Petermann uses a variety of techniques, including manual therapy, instrument-assisted adjustments, and soft tissue therapy to provide relief and restore balance to your body.

Utilizing Evidence-Based Approaches and Techniques

We consider it our responsibility to brief you about the techniques we will be using in the chiropractic treatment you will be undergoing. Our approach is evidence-based and includes many different techniques, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustment: This is the most common technique used by our chiropractor. It involves applying controlled force to a specific joint in your body, typically the spine, to improve its function and alleviate pain.
  • Active Release Therapy: Also known as ART, this technique uses manual therapy to address muscle adhesions and scar tissue that can cause pain and discomfort.
  • Manual therapy: This technique is performed by hand, where our chiropractor controls movement and muscle tension for pain relief and increased mobility.

  • Soft tissue treatment/Myofascial release: This technique targets the soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments, for pain relief and promotes healing.
  • Rehabilitative Exercise Program Design: Our chiropractor may prescribe specific exercises to help you regain strength and mobility after an injury or improve your overall physical performance.
  • Core Strength Training: A strong core is essential for overall health and wellness. Our chiropractor may incorporate core strengthening exercises to help with pain relief and prevent future injuries.

Before Your Visit: Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Safe is Chiropractic Treatment?
    Very safe.  A chiropractic adjustment, spinal manipulation, manual therapy or soft tissue release are techniques used by registered chiropractors with thousands of hours of practice and training. If you have any concerns, ask our chiropractor in Burlington about any risks associated with the specific chiropractic treatment you are receiving. 

  • How Often Do I Need to Continue to See a Chiropractor?
    It will depend on your initial assessment and how well you’re doing after treatments. Note that it’s not necessary to see a chiropractor a few times a week if your condition does not require it. At Pillars of Wellness (Health and Wellness Centre), we offer an integrated care approach to help our customers recover faster through a variety of modalities and services that can aid recovery. For example, you may find it beneficial to work with both our chiropractor and physiotherapist to determine a treatment plan. Talk to our staff at our front desk for more information. Feel free to read our page on our website about integrated care as well.

  • Am I Covered by Health Insurance?
    Most of the time, health insurance will cover this service. However, it’s always best to check first. Many of our patients are covered for chiropractic and can be treated in our health centre in Burlington.

  • Can I Benefit If I am Pregnant?
    Absolutely! Chiropractic care is an excellent drug-free alternative to relieve back pain, neck pain or other sports injuries. In addition, studies show that pregnant women who take chiropractic treatment decrease their labour time and require less pain control medication. We are also considered a family chiropractic clinic.

  • Can Children Be Treated?
    Yes, they can. Our chiropractor is certified and experienced in treating children. You won't find too many family chiropractic clinics in Burlington. Most chiropractors treat adult patients regarding lower back pain or neck pain but do not necessarily practice pediatric chiropractic care. Our staff ensures you receive the best possible service to improve your health overall.
