Do I need a referral from my Medical Doctor in order to see a Chiropractor?
No. Chiropractors are primary health care practitioners and can provide chiropractic services independently. You can set up an appointment with a chiropractor without first consulting your GP, although your Doctor may suggest that you see a chiropractor if he or she feels that chiropractic care may help you
Could chiropractic care make my condition worse?
Chiropractic care is a safe, non-intrusive procedure that will not hurt you as long as it is provided by a certified and qualified chiropractor. Complications of chiropractic care are extremely rare and not nearly as likely as they are with surgery or other forms of treatment.
If I start chiropractic care, will I have to continue chiropractic treatment for life?
Many people think that once chiropractic care starts, it has to continue. While we do recommend that our patients keep periodical appointments in order to ensure their condition remains stable and can be monitored, chiropractic care is not the reason patients keep coming back. People who require chiropractic care present conditions that can be treated by chiropractors. It is not the care you receive from your chiropractor that makes you need to continue with appointments, but rather the condition you had before starting chiropractic treatment. Some conditions can be successfully treated so that the patient does not need to continue with chiropractic treatment, but most conditions require continuous care.
I have had back surgery. Can I still benefit from chiropractic care?
Yes, you can. It is an unfortunate fact that many people who have undergone back surgery see symptoms of their original condition (often in the form of pain or reduced flexibility) come back after a number of years. Chiropractic care is a safe and efficient way of alleviating the pain associated both with your back condition and the stress of back surgery.
I have a lawyer on the case but I don’t have money to pay now, what can I do?
The clinic takes legal assignments from lawyers motor vehicle accident clients and slip and fall clients so you don’t pay until settlement. At that time your lawyer often asks for your treatment costs from the insurance company. There is direct motor vehicle insurance billing for those that have had motor vehicle accidents, and those that have had injury at work through the Alberta workers compensation board program, Veterans Affairs and Armed Forces.
