Our Onboarding Process
Welcome. Thank you for your interest in YEG Chiro+Neuro. We have some information we need to gather prior to your first visit to the clinic.
COVID-19 precautions remain in effect, and a COVID form will be filled out in our clinic before treatment begins.
Please fill these four forms out, print them off and bring them for your first appointment:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can lead to chronic pain and disability. The sooner you begin your rehabilitation the better, and chiropractic care is the perfect adjunct to physical therapy. With specific regulations and forms required by the government, we’ve set up a separate Motor Vehicle Accidents page to guide you to receiving chiropractic care coverage in Alberta.
Your first visit can last up to one hour. With your forms completed, Dr. Basaraba will review the documents and assess your primary injury. Attention is paid to determine if there is an underlying cause to your present condition.
Prior to your physical, you will be informed of the types of assessments to be done, and may include:
- Vitals exams
- Neurological exams
- Orthopedic tests
Dr. Basaraba will go over your results with you, utilizing anatomical models to help you visualize your recommended treatment. A copy of your treatment plan will be provided to you.
The first session is always limited. Overtreating a patient on their first visit can hinder the healing process rather than help it.
Typically, at the end of the first week of treatment your progress will be reviewed with you and an updated plan outlined. Intensity and volume of treatments are increased as the patient responds to their course.
Orthopedic and neurological conditions may have been developing for some time before any discomfort or pain appeared. With treatment, it may take more frequent – or fewer – sessions to counteract the full extent of the damage done. Individual results always vary from person to person.
