Are You in the Right Office?

Time for a deeper approach?
Is this you? “I’m so tired of suffering with ________ (chronic pain, headaches, asthma, constipation, numbness/tingling, anxiety, depression, low energy…).
Do you really want more treatment that will only mask the symptoms? Or are you ready to do the work to uncover the underlying cause of your symptoms, correct them, and get back to truly living life well?
What if there was a way to restore and nurture your body’s innate ability to heal itself? You could heal current health issues AND set yourself up for a healthier future.
Our office is a holistic, family-centred office. We focus our patients, young and old, on the fundamentals of a natural, proactively healthy life and then help them to consistently execute those fundamentals.
The two pillars of natural health are, first, a healthy, clear-functioning nervous system and second, natural, unprocessed, body-building food.
Chiropractic adjustments restore clear communication between your brain and body and allow the foreman of the job site (brain) to optimally coordinate how the workers (cells) use the building materials (food) to repair and maintain (heal) the entire structure.
The routine stresses and low-quality food of the modern life destroy health progressively, like death from a thousand paper cuts. Embracing a lifestyle that resists this progressive decay is essential for longevity, productivity, activity and overall health and happiness. Teaching children to adopt such a lifestyle EARLY is essential to living life well.
To better understand HOW we accomplish all of that, please read the following articles and see the success stories of people just like you.
Below is a description of what to expect during your first visit in our office. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, click on the Schedule My First Appointment Now button in the right side menu.
Your First Visit:
The first part of your New Patient Exam visit involves us giving and gathering some important information and will take 30-40 minutes. We believe an informed patient gets better faster, so we will include a focused explanation of how your first visit will go and what to expect during your exam.
There are three parts to this visit:
- Your Story: This is where you tell us about the health concerns you have throughout your body, not just where you have pain. Largely, we’ll be listening or asking a few questions, with the goal of understanding your health, your history and what you want.
- Testing: we’ll explain, then perform, tests that allow us to understand the current state of your spine (do you have subluxation? is there disc degeneration? is your spine in a healthy shape side-to-side?, front-to-back?). Then we’ll test your nervous system (where is the interference that is preventing your body from healing and functioning optimally?).
- What Did We Find?: Dr. Colin will summarize what we found, which x-rays we need to take and what comes next.
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.
Finally, Dr. Colin will study all of your exam results, including any x-rays taken and assemble a plan of care to help you get well as fast as possible and stay healthy as long as possible.
Your Second Visit:
The first part of this visit is focused on increasing your understanding of your own body and empower you to maximize health and healing in the future.
Dr. Colin will then review your x-rays with you individually, answer any questions you have, and detail his 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.
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 great passion is helping our patient families to live life well by expressing their full innate potential.
Finally, we want you to know how much we love serving the people who come here. We work hard to ensure your comfortable in our office – we welcome any question, at any time.
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 Merchants Restaurant.
Cindy will greet you when you enter our office. Before you come to the office, though, you must 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.
