Your First Visit
To get to our office check out the map and directions here.
We’re located in the heart of Marda Loop at 2110A – 33 Avenue SW. There’s ample parking in the lot and on the streets around us and we’re in the same mall as Mac’s and the Registry.
Our awesome chiropractic assistant Cindy will greet you when you enter our office. Before you come to the office though you must click on the New Patient Forms photo and complete the Adult and/or Child Intake Form(s). By completing these forms before you arrive, you’ll give us all the important information we’ll need to begin helping you and you’ll be able to take your time and do it in the comfort of your own home.
The first part of your New Patient Exam visit involves us giving and gathering some important information. We believe an informed patient gets better faster so we will start with a focused explanation of how your first visit will go and what to expect during your exam.
A thorough exam that checks the entire spine with an emphasis on chiropractic neurology is the critical foundation of our care. You aren’t just a bunch of parts or a couple of symptoms – all of your systems and parts are supposed to work in harmony and when they’re not, your body may tell you about the problem with certain symptoms. Or it may not. Our corrective chiropractic care focus has allowed us to become one of Calgary’s Top Rated Chiropractors.
We’ll check your posture with a computerized digital posture photo analysis. Next, Dr. Colin will examine the movement and position of your spine with a complete range of motion and palpation exam. And after performing any specific orthopedic, neurologic or muscle tests he’ll determine which x-ray views, if any, are indicated. And just so you know, all of the testing in our office is meant to be painless. If you’re in crisis we’ll do all that we can to minimize your discomfort while still gathering the information we need to help you get healing.
Dr. Colin has been a certified pediatric Chiropractor since 1997 and more than 50% of the families who visit our office have their kids under care, too. If your little ones are experiencing ear infections, frequent colds and flus, asthma, growing pains or you just want them to be super-naturally healthy then a chiropractic pediatric exam is the first step.
Once we’ve gathered as much as we can during your first visit, we’ll take you through your x-ray requisition and other information designed to help you understand your body and health better. Finally we’ll help you schedule your second visit – Your Report of Findings.
Your Second Visit:
Dr. Colin will review your x-rays with you, answer any questions you have and detail his specific next steps and chiropractic care recommendations for you. We want you to understand the cause of your health problems and be able to make an informed decision on how you want to proceed. The first part of this visit is focused on increasing your understanding of your own body and how to maximize health and healing in the future – with this information you’ll get better faster and stay better longer. We don’t believe in surprising you or hard selling you. We’ll definitely take the time to make sure you clearly understand our recommendations and care before you proceed.
We value your time – so we have arranged things in our office to make it easy for you to get your adjustments. Regular chiropractic adjustments themselves take only a few minutes but the healing happens in the time between your adjustments. Our goal is to unleash your body’s incredible inborn healing abilities through gentle chiropractic adjustments that remove the interference that is keeping you from being at your best.
Finally, we want you to know how much we love serving the people and families who come here. We want you to feel comfortable enough to ask questions about anything but our aim is to anticipate so well that we answer your questions before you even ask.
