Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we at HALO Clinic get. If these don't answer your questions please reach out to us and we will be happy to assist you in your question.
What is a Chiropractor?
Chiropractors are health care professionals focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders (think muscles, bones and integrated movements). The emphasis in therapy is through manual therapy, including manipulations (adjustments), soft tissue work, exercise prescription, injury prevention. Chiropractors work with general health challenges, sports, work and auto injuries and some movement disorders.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No! All of our practitioners can see you without a doctors note. In fact Chiropractors are primary care practitioners and we can see you for work injuries, motor vehicle injuries and sports injuries and direct your care with you. Some insurance policies may require a physicians note for reimbursement for massage therapy.
How do I make an appointment?
You can get in touch by phone (1-403-452-7100) or use the form under the contact page. You can also email the clinic following the link at the top of this page to start your recovery.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will be so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
What do I need to bring?
We hope you will bring your broken sore self. We have seen it almost all. Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history.If you have them please bring a list of medication and supplements that you are recently and currently taking. Bring clothing that you feel comfortable moving in, such as shorts and t-shirts or tank top.
How many visits will I need?
This is a great question. What is the problem? What is missing from your life today that you would like to do again? What is your level of commitment to your own care? How long have you had your problem? When do you consider yourself "healed?" Are you healed when it doesn't hurt anymore, or when you are engaging in all of your activities? We want to see you engaging in your life as soon as possible in as short of time as possible.
