What to Expect/Consents

Chiropractors are specially trained doctors who excel in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries relating to the muscles and joints of the body.

Your initial visit will be 45 minutes long.  During this time, the chiropractor will ask you questions about your complaint, your health history and other questions as necessary.  A physical exam is used to confirm your area of concern, and involves moving your body through a range of motion, checking your nerves and testing the different structures of your body to identify which are affected.

Your diagnosis will be described to you, along with a recommended treatment plan.

Initial Appointments:  45 minutes

Extended Follow-Up:   30 minutes

Subsequent Follow-Up:  15 minutes

Please note the following consents are required:

Privacy and Sharing of Information
I authorize the clinic and its associated health professionals to collect my personal and medical information as required. In addition, I authorize the clinic and its associated health professionals to communicate with my family doctor and/or referring doctor as deemed necessary for my benefit. I also understand that my personal and medical information is confidential and will only be disclosed to third parties with my permission.

Cancellation Policy

Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists’ day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 24 hours notice will be charged 50% of the appointment fee, and those who miss their appointment without notification, will be charged the full appointment fee.

CMCC Community-Based Clinical Education

Dr. Cox is a professor and supervising clinician at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. As with the rest of the world, CMCC has had to adapt to the global pandemic and modify how clinical experiences are delivered to the students. As such, Dr. Cox is happy to bring an intern into Tottenham Chiropractic through the Community-Based Clinical Education Program.

The Community-Based Clinical Education Program provides Year IV interns the opportunity to move out into the field under the supervision of a CMCC approved chiropractor, provided certain criteria have been met. Through this program, interns are placed with field practitioners for a portion of their internship in order to receive hands-on experience in a private practice environment.
