Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during my first visit?

Initial consultation: Your first appointment should take approximately 1 hour. In this time, you will:

  • Fill out a health profile questionnaire to help us get to know you
  • Discuss your health problems and goals with Dr. Akhavan
  • Be asked to share your medical history
  • Engage in a thorough physical examination

During the consultation, Dr. Akhavan will review your health history and perform standard physical, neurological, and chiropractic tests to determine the root cause of your symptoms. Based on these findings, he will then recommend a treatment program tailored to you.

What do I need to bring with me?
  • Referral if provided by your doctor
  • Payment information
  • Any form required by your insurance company
Do I need a doctor’s referral?

Chiropractors are legislated as primary care providers and do not require a doctor’s referral. However, some extended health benefit plan insurance companies require a doctor’s referral for full reimbursement of physical therapy costs.

How should I dress?

Loose fitting clothing would be the best choice. The ability to expose the affected area is the key when choosing appropriate clothing.

How long will each appointment take?

Typically, each appointment will last between 30 and 60 minutes. Chiropractic adjustments might be able to be completed in as little as 5 minutes.

How many visits will I require?

Every case varies depending on severity of the problem and how your body reacts to the treatment. You may require only one visit or ongoing care for a few months. You will be constantly evaluated by your therapist and will be provided with recommendations and possible additional treatment if required.

What will I need to do following my treatment?

The list of things to do following a treatment varies greatly depending on the patient. Some may need to continue home exercises, some will need to get into the gym, and some will simply finish their treatment and return to daily activity.

How soon can I get an appointment?

Please call us for the first available appointment. Often, it will be within 24 hours.

  • "My neck is completely free of pain!"

    For approximately 25 years I have experienced varying degrees of pain in my neck and back and have tried a number of different treatments to eliminate the discomfort. Now, to my amazement and delight, you have treated me with Active Release Therapy and my neck is completely free of pain.

    Over a period of approximately eight weeks you applied this treatment to my neck and I have not had a moment of discomfort since my last treatment.

    I am so impressed with your technique, skill and commitment to chiropractic that I am looking forward to further treatments – with the goal of a completely pain-free back. Thank you!
