An initial visit in this office typically consists of completing a health history form and a discussion of current and historic complaints. This is followed by an examination consisting of static and motion palpation, orthopedic tests and assessment of soft tissues. According to history and exam findings any necessary treatment will begin on the first visit, and any necessary plan of management will be discussed at that time.
Treatment usually consists of manipulation of the spine and/or extremities along with some soft tissue treatment. Appropriate home care will be recommended and any associated lifestyle issues will be addressed. The age of patients seen in this office range from 6 days to 89 years.
Dr. Dodsworth enjoys a healthy mutual referral network involving naturopaths, massage therapists, physiotherapists, medical doctors, acupuncturists, midwives and other health care disciplines. If he feels your complaint is not best treated by chiropractic, he will be happy to try and help you find the appropriate care.
Dr. Dodsworth is licensed by the BC Colleges of Chiropractors, and is a member of the BC and Canadian Chiropratic Associations.
