Your First Visit
The First Visit is a 45 minutes to 1 hour appointment and includes Chiropractic Assessment, exam, and treatment.
Upon entering our office, our Administrative Staff will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Remember to bring your Alberta Health Care Card with you, and your Insurance information.
Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. Steve Kim to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Kim to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how Chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Kim will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Depending on your specific condition, we may ask you to take X-rays with your Family Doctor. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignment and degeneration themselves.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr. Kim will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr. Kim will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr. Kim will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can experience your first treatment.
The treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of your treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan.
The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
Beside Chiropractic treatments Dr. Kim might suggest Massage therapy and/or Acupuncture sessions, which we provide at the clinic.
