Chiropractors in West Springs Calgary | Center For Healthy Living
What to Expect
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important to us as Chiropractors in West Springs Calgary that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!
Your First Visit
On your first visit we appreciate that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointments to fill out the required paperwork, if you have not already downloaded and completed our paperwork on-line or by other means. Be prepared to meet our exceptional and friendly staff who will assist you with any questions prior to your appointment. Please bring a pair of shorts and a sports top to your appointment if you remember too, if not we have shorts and patient gowns. Upon completion of your paperwork our staff will assist you into the consultation room where further instructions will be provided on the preparation for your nervous system scan with your West Springs Calgary Chiropractor.
Consultation & Examination
The Doctor will discuss your case first asking particular questions on the reasons why you are here, etc., prior to your scan. A scan of your nervous system will be conducted using both thermal and surface EMG. There are no X-rays with this procedure. If X-rays are required the Doctor will refer you to a facility close by.
The Doctor will than provide a postural assessment, spinal examination and/or examination of your extremities to determine what your health challenges are. A diagnosis will be provided for you and treatment options discussed.
A more detailed description of your treatment plan is discussed upon your second visit with the Doctor. Sometimes treatments are provided on the first visit and sometimes they are not, each condition is different therefore treatment discretion is up to the Doctor. For example if he believed further testing is required before treatment for example like an X-ray, than the Doctor would order one first to rule out any possible risk factors.
Upon completion with the Doctor further appointments are discussed with the him and than future appointments made through our friendly staff is performed. Payment is provided on the same day of service, we accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Debit, and Cash. We correspond with our patients through email providing you reminders of future appointments.
