The scope of Chiropractic Care is primarily focused on the neuro-musculoskeletal system (nerves, joints, muscles, tendons, and bone).
Your first Virtual Chiropractic Consultation (VCC) will aim to perform an initial screening assessment regarding your complaint.
After your assessment has been completed, it may be determined that:
i. You are in need of urgent/emergency care that requires in-person chiropractic treatment.
ii. You are in need of urgent/emergency care that is outside the chiropractic scope of practice and a referral will be made to the appropriate health professional.
iii. Your symptoms can be managed remotely via virtual care. Although hands on care is a component of what chiropractors do, many injuries and conditions can be managed remotely with: prescribing and monitoring appropriate exercises; recommending appropriate devices or supports; professional advice on ergonomics, nutrition, hot/cold therapies, lifestyle and home care/self-management strategies. If your condition does not improve via these measures, it may be determined that an in-person chiropractic treatment may be necessary OR that you are in need of urgent/emergency care OR care from another health professional.
