FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Yes, Dr. Fabbro accepts insurance. At the time of the visit the patient will pay for their appointment. Dr. Fabbro will then provide the patient with a receipt for service and any other documentation needed for the patient to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement.
DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
No, a doctor's referral is not needed to book an appointment with Dr. Fabbro. Chiropractors are legislated as primary health care professionals in every province in Canada. This means that patients can consult them directly without a medical doctor referral.
WHAT IS YOUR NEW PATIENT PROCEDURE?
Dr. Fabbro's new patient procedure involves the patient to first fill out the "new patient" paperwork that can be received at the front desk upon arrival. When the patient has completed the necessary forms, Dr. Fabbro will then perform a history, physical exam and then explain the diagnosis and proposed treatment plan to the patient. Once this has all occurred and there are no other questions or referrals needed, the patient will be treated.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?
A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure that involves a chiropractor to use their hands to apply a quick, controlled, force into a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure is to improve motion in a joint, decrease pain and improve functional movement. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor performs their adjustments; this is just gas leaving the joint and is not a cause for concern.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture focuses on treating the nervous system, musculoskeletal systems and other functional problems through the insertion of acupuncture needles into specific 'neuro-reactive sites' in an effort to create a positive therapeutic effect. Contemporary acupuncture aims to stimulate the peripheral nervous system manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system. The benefits of acupuncture include: decreased musculoskeletal pain, improve tissue healing, improve sensory-motor muscle coordination and restore muscle strength.
