Chiropractic Care

This is a non-surgical and drug-free approach to health care. In this treatment, chiropractors use their hands to assess, diagnose, and treat various spinal and extremity conditions. They focus on assessing the joints, muscles, and tendons and their influence in the nervous system.

The Four Phases of our Treatment Plan

  • 1

    The Relief Phase

    This stage is designed to reduce the symptoms and inflammation, especially when they are in its most intense state.

  • 2

    The Corrective Phase

    After your symptoms are either gone or has significantly improved, our team will help you achieve increased function and mobility.

  • 3

    The Rehabilitative Phase

    This focuses on strengthening the spinal structure in their proper positions and ensuring that the correction is maintained. In this phase, you will be able to feel an increase in strength, mobility, energy, and function.

  • 4

    The Wellness Phase

    This stage occurs when you have achieved optimal health. At this point, you may have the option to schedule periodic chiropractic exams to help you maintain your condition and prevent you from having new injuries.

Massage Therapy

This is considered as one of the oldest healing arts. Massage therapy is the application of different therapies to the muscular structure and other soft tissues of the human body by rubbing, pressing, or manipulating them with varying degrees of pressure.

Massage therapy is intended to reduce stress and fatigue and improve the body’s blood circulation. It is also helpful for prevention from pain and restoration of energy.

Techniques that are used depend on the patient’s needs—pain elimination, rehabilitation aid after a sports injury, stress reduction, or relaxation. This treatment can also be helpful for anti-anxiety and general wellness.

Therapeutic Massage Rates

  • 60-minute Massage - $90.00
  • 90-minute Massage - $130.00

Most extended health plans cover fees for massage therapy. Feel free to get in touch with us for any inquiries.

Acupuncture

This Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice and component is a complete health care system approach to treating and preventing disease. Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years and has been viewed as an alternative and complementary treatment choice in Western culture.

What Does It Do?

In this traditional practice, diseases and health disorders are viewed as an imbalance of energy. Acupuncturists work with the body’s energy, which flows along meridians or well-defined pathways. They aim to prevent or treat illnesses by inserting thin needles at specific points along the body’s meridians to normalize the energy flow. Acupuncture induces biochemical changes in the body, which has beneficial effects and can drastically improve healing.

Does It Hurt?

Acupuncture rarely causes pain. What most people experience is a dull ache around the base of the needle or a slight tingling feeling when it is inserted. Points at the extremities, like toe or finger ends, can sometimes hurt but the sensation lasts for only a brief period.

Acupuncture Rates

  • Initial Visit / Assessment and Treatment - $125.00
  • Subsequent Acupuncture Treatment - $90.00

Custom Orthotics

Your feet are a complex system composed of 52 bones, 66 joints, 214 ligaments, and 38 tendons and muscles. The smallest muscle imbalance can cause you a lot of pain. If left untreated, chronic foot pain can prevent you from achieving the active lifestyle you desire.

The most common types of foot pain that can result in poor function are:

  • Achilles Tendonitis (Rear Foot Pain)

  • Bunion Pain (Big Toe Pain)

  • Heel Spurs (Heel Pain)

  • Plantar Fasciitis (Arch Pain)

In these cases, foot orthotics can be helpful in restoring optimal timing and pressure patterns, which aid in the treatment of biomechanical abnormalities. A balance support system on your feet can also improve your posture, reduce the stress on joints, and enhance your athletic performance.

We offer a wide selection of custom orthotic types that are specifically designed for walking/running, golfing, skiing, skating, weightlifting, tennis, soccer and other activities. Using the 3D GaitScan™ technology, we will assess the dynamic and static loading of your steps and identify the deficiencies in it. Our custom foot orthotics is covered by many extended benefit plans.

Motor Vehicle Accident and Worker’s Compensation

Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)

If you have been involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, do the following within 10 days after the collision.

  • File an injury accident report to the police.
  • Seek treatment to a primary health care provider (PHCP) such as a chiropractor, physical therapist, or physician. If you only had a minor injury (such as sprain, strain, or minor whiplash), there’s no need for an authorization from your insurer. You may immediately begin your treatment, and your insurance company will be directly billed.
  • File the appropriate forms. These are available in your PHCP, insurer, or insurance broker. Notify your insurance company but make sure to not settle the case until you find out if there are any conditions that might later affect your life—physically and financially. It is common that they begin asking you a series of confusing questions after the accident and record the conversation.
  • If necessary, hire a lawyer that will work closely with your clinic. Do not provide statements about the accident to anyone other than the police. You should not also sign any documents prior to consulting your lawyer.

Worker’s Compensation Board (WCB)

If you have been physically hurt while working, you can go straight to a chiropractor for a treatment. For more than 10 years, this therapy has had the highest satisfaction rate among injured employees. It is also considered as one of the most clinically and cost-effective methods in treating work-related injuries.

Seeing a medical doctor first is not required. Chiropractors can submit your assessment information to the WCB to review and determine if your claim is accepted.

Things to Do If You Got Hurt at Work

  • Report the details of your injury to your employer. After receiving this notice, he or she must relay it to the WCB-Alberta within 72 hours.
  • Visit your health care provider. Tell them about your injury. Your doctor or chiropractor must then report to WCB-Alberta within 48 hours.
  • Report to WCB-Alberta and send a Report of Injury form to them as soon as possible.
