1. What can I expect at my first visit?

New Patient Evaluation

All new patient appointments begin with a consultation and history. Following this is a complete evaluation including: orthopedic and neurological examination, spinal range-of-motion, computerized Surface EMG, Heart Rate Variability and Thermography. Spinal motion palpation and a postural evaluation will also be performed. Once the evaluation is complete a full report is prepared, and the information is given to you with recommendations and health strategies on your follow-up visit. This information will allow you to make a full and informed decision regarding your care. Please allow one hour of your time for your first visit.

Our Success Indicator – Progress Evaluations

Done on an ongoing basis, this visit includes consultation, computerized Surface EMG & Thermography, range-of-motion and all other applicable examination factors. Evaluation concludes with your chiropractic adjustment and a thorough discussion of your progress and future recommendations.

Patient Confidentiality

Doctors, practitioners and FFC front desk employees adhere to a strict confidentiality policy. This policy enables our practice members to seek care from our clinic recognizing that we will not share private information about you to anyone outside our clinic without your written acknowledgement. If you are concerned about any aspect of your care we encourage you to speak with your practitioner or to Dr. Danielle Warner directly

2. What Techniques Do the Doctors Use to Adjust Practice Members?

The doctors use a variety of traditional and gentle based techniques. We mainly use a gentle based technique called Torque Release Technique. We also utilize several other techniques which are appropriate for infants, children, seniors and pregnant moms. Whichever the method, all techniques will be discussed with practice members prior to their commencement of care.

About Torque Release Technique

TRT is considered non-manipulative: the emphasis is in communicating new corrective information through gentle touch or a light thrust by a handheld instrument. After each adjustment, the body is given time to process the adjustment. The ripple effect continues long after you get off the table.

The primary intent of this work is to progressively reduce blockages and tension in the entire spinal system, to release trapped unresolved patterns in the body/mind, and to facilitate reintegration of the nervous system, allowing a greater expression of one’s healing and performance capabilities.

3. How Should I Feel After An Adjustment?

After an adjustment you may experience a feeling of deepening peace and relaxation. This relaxed feeling may last for the rest of the day or the week and may lead to deep refreshing sleep.

Others may find that the problems that they came to the chiropractor for have begun to lessen and there are some people who feel no difference after an adjustment. That does not necessarily mean that they are not benefiting from their adjustments, it just means that they’re not feeling any external reaction.

A small minority may feel discomfort or muscle soreness, or some other uncomfortable feeling; their body is letting them know that it is being challenged to change.

As You Continue Your Chiropractic Care

As you continue your chiropractic care and your spine and nervous system continue to release deep-seated stresses as part of your healing process, you may begin to notice:

  • Better balance, improved coordination and more energy.
  • Increased awareness of your spine, its movements, areas of tightness and/or restrictions.
  • Increased ability to breathe more deeply and more awareness of your breathing.
  • Increased awareness of your body stress.
  • More emotional relaxation.

Ultimately you may spontaneously change your eating habits, feel an increased desire to exercise, go for walks or become more sensitive to your work and leisure.

4. Do you work with insurance companies and bill directly?

Workers Compensation and Auto Accident Claims

On an individual basis we will accept WSIB and auto accident claims. In these circumstances we will bill and collect payment on your behalf directly from your insurer. Payment from the patient is not expected at the time of service when the claim has been opened and accepted by your insurer.

Extended Health Care Benefits

You may have full or partial coverage of your chiropractic care under the plan offered by you or your spouse’s employer. We suggest you call your insurer for full information. To assist you in obtaining these benefits we will supply you with a comprehensive and detailed invoice on a regular basis which you then present to your insurer for reimbursement.

5. How Can Chiropractic Care Address Breech Presentation?

The Webster Technique is a gentle ligament release & adjusting protocol that has shown to be effective in reducing in-utero constraint. In-utero constraint is due to the transfer of tension that may exist across the uterine/abdominal area from stress imposed upon it from surrounding ligaments and improper sacral (pelvic) position. It has been associated with a high incidence of fetus’ that are in breech or abnormal fetal position.

If in-utero constraint is determined to be present, the Webster Technique is implemented to remove the restraining forces, thus allowing the baby to establish the preferred head-down position. It’s that easy!

Dr. Warner and Dr. Ramsey are certified in the analysis and utilization of the Webster Technique.

10. I heard that once you go to a Chiropractor you will have to go for the rest of your life. Is that true?

Ultimately, it is entirely up to you to decide how you want to benefit from Chiropractic Care. We are here to support you on whichever journey you choose.

Testimonials

Let Our Work Speak
for Itself

I have been going to Foster Family Chiropractic for over 5 years and it has been such a positive experience. Dr. Warner is so caring and easy to talk to. She has adjusted both of my children from the age of 4 weeks old. There were so many benefits to bringing my children at such a young age - better digestion and sleep patterns being the most helpful to this tired mama! Highly recommend them!

ELISA TRAPANI

Foster Family Chiropractic offers a gentle form of chiropractic adjustment that allows me to relax and forget about the stresses of the week. The practitioners at this clinic are always very supportive in providing personal care, on an individual basis. Treatment sessions are geared to my sensitivities and I know I can rely on quality care, each and every visit. They are simply the best!

DIANNE HIGUCHI

Dr. Ramsey is truly remarkable. Dr. Ramsey always provides exceptional care and always goes over and above. Dr Ramsey helped me immensely and researched on her own time, possible diagnosis and also referred me to specialists outside of her field in order to help me receive the care I required. I strongly recommend FFC to anyone who wishes to receive the best service and care.
