What to Expect at Outback Chiropractic

Your First Visit

Most people are curious as to what takes place in our Thunder Bay office, even before they walk through the door for the first time. This is understandable, particularly if you’ve never visited a chiropractor before. We’ve shared a bit about what you can expect when you visit us. If you have questions or want more information, please feel free to call us.

New Patient Forms

Once you’ve been welcomed to the office, you’ll be given some simple forms to fill out concerning basic health and contact information. You’ll then be escorted to a private room to meet with Dr. Gleeson.


I will sit with you and learn all I can about your health concerns. I’ll be interested in how your problem started, what the pain feels like and what you’ve found that gives you the most relief.


Once I fully understand your concerns, I’ll perform a series of chiropractic, orthopedic, range of motion and nerve tests. These non-invasive tests will help me find the source of your problem, and whether or not you have a condition that I can help. If I find that I can’t help you, I’ll promptly refer you to the appropriate health care professional.

Report of Findings

Next, I will review the results of my testing with you and discuss what I believe can be done to correct your problem and get you out of pain. You’re encouraged to ask any questions that you might have at this time. Once all of your questions have been answered and you’re ready to start care, your first treatment will be performed.

How long can I expect my first visit to be?

The average first visit takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes.


What to Expect at a Typical Office Visit

On a typical visit you’ll be escorted to a treatment room and meet with Dr. Gleeson. At this time your progress will be monitored, any questions will be answered and treatment will then be delivered. Afterward at the front desk, another appointment will be made if necessary and payment will be processed.

Will I Need Treatment My Whole Life?

Absolutely not! It’s true that many patients choose to continue their chiropractic care on some type of periodic basis simply because they enjoy feeling good. Others choose to see us from time to time for episodes of neck pain or back pain.


The choice is always yours!

We welcome any questions that you might have. Give us a call today at (807) 768-2225.
