Welcome to Gentle Family Chiropractic!
We understand that arriving at a doctor's office for the first time can be nerve wracking. If you've never experienced chiropractic care before, you may not know what to expect when you come to our London Ontario chiropractic office for the first time. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces and names, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That's why at Gentle Family Chiropractic our aim is to remove any unnecessary stress or tension and make you feel comfortable during your visit with our chiropractor.
Our website has lots of information to help you decide whether this office is right for you. To make it even easier, we have an online booking system (use the TEAL button at the top of the page) for both human and animal patients. You can check out our schedule and find a time that's right for you. You can even fill out your paperwork so we can get started as soon as you arrive for your appointment!
Of course, if you have any questions or just want to talk to a human being, please call our London Ontario chiropractic office at 519 476 8700!
What to Expect
We use a gentle adjustment method at our office. In fact it's why most people contact us. They like the 'no twisting, turning or cracking' that we provide here. And gentle adjustments are just as effective as 'regular' adjustments, providing the same kind of relief in the same amount of time.
There are different reasons for coming to our office: Chronic symptoms, acute pain, prenatal issues, improving your child's health or increasing your pet's mobility.
Many pregnant women come to see Dr. Maya because she is certified in a special technique specifically designed to help them. Webster's Technique has been found to reduce labour time, decrease pregnancy aches and pains as well as potentially helping the baby get in the proper position for birth. No matter the reason for making an appointment, each new patient needs an initial consultation and examination. This assessment allowsDr. Maya to create the most effective treatment plan.
Your First Chiropractic Appointment
The consultation lets you meet the doctor and learn about Chiropractic. It also helps us determine if we think chiropractic can help you. If we think it can, and you agree, the next step is a complete chiropractic examination. This examination will help determine which areas of your spine and nervous system are involved and related to your health issues. Dr. Maya performs a hands-on chiropractic examination to obtain important clinical information and may recommend x-rays (which are covered by your Ontario Health Card) to learn more about your condition. An adjustment may be given on this visit.
Report of Findings-- Second Appointment
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Maya Pande will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and possibly X-rays, she will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers.
Follow up appointments will be about 10-15 minutes long. At certain points in your care, you'll get a progress exam to see how you're doing.
