firstThe first step is calling for an appointment. At that time, feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding insurance, treatment costs and procedures. If your questions are more specific to treatment protocols, Dr. West will gladly return your call as soon as possible.

First appointments usually take 45 minutes to 1 hour. Arriving fifteen minutes early is recommended as there are several information sheets to be completed prior to examination. Please keep in mind that these forms only take a few minutes and often provide important information pertaining to your condition.

A complete history, neurological, orthopedic, physical and applied kinesiology exam will then be conducted to assess your condition and its prognosis with chiropractic care. We will then discuss these findings; recommendations and treatment plan; and any further questions you may have. Frequency of care is based on individual schedule; nature and severity of injury; and treatment protocols. Each case is assessed on an individual basis and care is focused on an expeditious and long-lasting recovery.

If required, X-rays will be discussed and taken. Dr. West will review and do a report of findings. X-ray facilities are available in the building. While not routinely taken on every patient, an X-ray is often an important part of diagnosis for many patients.

Patients have enjoyed better health and well-being from the benefits of this safe and effective treatment.

Dr. West will customize a treatment plan for you which may include one or more physiotherapies. She will decide according to the severity of your condition, what needs to happen; chiropractic adjustments, possibly in conjunction with physiotherapies such as The Jensen Table, interferential electrotherapy, cryotherapy (or ice) and massage. A plan to get you from Crisis or Acute Care to Wellness Care will be the goal for your future health care needs.
