Your first visit will run along similar lines to that of your doctor; you will discuss a full health history and be asked questions about lifestyle and diet. Tana will want to hear about all of your symptoms as well as any past injuries or surgeries, even if they seem unrelated to your current concerns. A full assessment and treatment will then take place, the entire process taking approximately 45 minutes.
You can remain fully clothed during treatment so it is best to wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. Practitioners are highly trained to manually locate points of restriction or excessive strain in various parts of the body using finely tuned palpation so the practitioner will assess how you use your body and identify any obvious mobility impairment after a fully body assessment. Follow-up appointments are approximately 25 minutes.
Prior to attending your first appointment, please ensure you have filled out the intake package provided by Jane, the online booking system. It is not necessary to bring a hard copy of this intake to your appointment, as our clinic utilizes electronic treatment records.
Thank you, Whitehorse, for your continued support that has resulted in exponential growth of my practice!
Whitehorse Osteopathy will always accept new patients. However, in an effort to provide continuing care to those already in my practice, I must manage the rate at which I accept new patients. For this reason, new patients are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org
to be placed on the wait list. I am working hard to see you as quickly as possible, and I appreciate your patience.
If you would like more timely care, after-hours appointments are available by request; please contact via email to inquire about an after-hours appointment.
During regular business hours; includes health history, assessment, and treatment
During regular business hours; all subsequent treatments
Outside of regular business hours, by request only
For existing patients requiring acute care or to accommodate scheduling conflicts
For new patients to expedite care faster than the wait-list
Whitehorse Osteopathy operates out of the Pine Medical building in the heart of downtown Whitehorse. Free parking is available on 5th avenue or on the surrounding side streets. Enter through the main doors on 5th Ave and head downstairs; have a seat in the waiting area while you wait for your appointment. For added security, after hours appointments (5pm and onwards) will need to buzz Suite 5 in order to gain entry into the building.
