What to Expect?
Please bring completed intake forms and all lab work and imaging relevant to your condition to your initial intake in order to maximize your time with the naturopathic doctor (ND).
Your Backs in Action Naturopathic Doctors will take a comprehensive history of your current complaint, as well as your general medical history in order to get the full picture of any areas of imbalance that could be contributing to your condition. They may perform a focused physical exam including blood pressure, heart rate, height and weight, depending on your chief concern.
Our East Vancouver Naturopathic Doctors will take the time to address your health goals and make sure that the treatment plan you receive is addressing the concerns, which brought you to seek care. You will be given treatment recommendations and most likely health tracking homework at the end of the visit. Depending on your history and assessment, your ND may prescribe nutritional or botanical supplements, acupuncture sessions, lifestyle and/or dietary counseling, home remedies or further laboratory testing.
1 Week Follow Up
Generally, there will be a one-week follow-up to further refine your treatment plan, follow up with, and address any difficulties or questions you may have with respect to your plan, perform further screening physical exams or review lab work.
After this, you should be on your way to a happier, healthier you! Depending on the treatment plan you and your naturopathic doctor agree upon, you may need to return for a series of treatments or you may only need a follow up every 3 weeks to one month to make sure you are on track and to address any new issues that may arise.
