If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. At Healing Hands Family Wellness, our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension you may have about our Chiropractic & Wellness Services and do everything we can to make you feel at home. New Patients visiting Healing hands Wellness Centre and current patients are treated with the same level of care and compassion at every visit.
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We have found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. The more you understand about who we are, what we do, and why we do it, the better results you will enjoy.
Your First Visit: The minute you walk into our Okotoks Wellness Centre, whether you are a new patient or not, you will always be greeted by a smiling face. If you haven’t already filled out your new patient forms online, you will be asked to complete them at this time.
Your treatment begins with a thorough history, followed by a comprehensive orthopedic/neurological exam and range of motion tests to identify your problem areas. Once we have determined your condition, we may send you for x-rays to further investigate your condition, including the level of degeneration you may have. At this initial visit, you will watch a short, five-minute video introducing you to Chiropractic Care to help you better understand the benefits of chiropractic treatment.
Your Second Visit: Your second visit is used to discuss our findings and present your treatment plan. We will show you your x-rays and combine this with your examination results, so you have a full understanding of the treatment plan we have personalized for you. You will watch another five-minute video explaining your options in terms of care. We will then explain what normal spinal function/structure is and the three levels of care we provide.
After acknowledging that you understand how we can help you, and you accept our treatment plan recommendations, we can then schedule your initial adjustment and let the healing begin.
Your Follow-Up Visits: The length of your follow-up or subsequent visits will vary according to the type of care being provided. An adjustment only may take 5-minutes or less, yet a specialized visit may average 15 minutes to half an hour.
