What to Expect

As chiropractors in South Calgary we want all of our patients to feel immediately at home when they walk in the door. Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important for you to feel comfortable right from the start.

Your First Visit to Our South Calgary Practice

If you’ve already completed your intake paperwork online, fantastic! If not, you will be given an opportunity to do so. Then we’ll likely show you a short 5 minute video to keep you entertained while reviews the responses you gave on your intake forms.

Your Chiropractic Consultation

Next Dr. Grant will discuss your health and long term goals with you. The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to see if chiropractic is likely to help you both in the short and long term. If it looks promising, a thorough physical exam will help identify the cause of your problem.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance! You will be given an opportunity to ask any questions you have and time will be taken to ensure you thoroughly understand your healthcare. You may be given a treatment on this day including adjustment(s), active release techniques, stretching, massages and therapy machines (muscle stim etc.). In some cases the doctor will decide a different course of action is best and postpone starting treatment. This may be the case when additional tests are needed (ex. x-ray, MRI, ultrasound etc.). If this occurs rest assured the doctor will explain his reasons very carefully.

How long will your first chiropractic visit be?

The entire first office visit takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour. Many patients are surprised how much attention and treatment they receive here. We value your health and will not rush you out the door. It takes time to achieve optimum health.
