Coronavirus Message

*** Update April 1, 2020 ***

The Alberta government ordered chiropractors to cease normal operations and limit care to urgent, critical and emergency cases only. Chiropractors are not permitted to provide any service that does not constitute urgent, critical or emergency care.

The definition of urgent, critical or emergency is as follows:

Urgent neurological chiropractic care:
This is defined as a pathology that could reasonably lead to a neurological deficit. The patient must be a demonstratable candidate for response to manual treatment, as delivered by a chiropractor; and if left untreated would result in the patient seeking urgent or emergency care at a medical facility.

This must be established with a complete neuro/ortho/biomechanical assessment. No other form of assessment may be used to establish the need for care. Subluxation, wellness or functional care does not meet the criteria for urgent neurological chiropractic care in the context of what has been communicated by Alberta Health.

Urgent musculoskeletal chiropractic care:
This is defined as a pathology that could reasonably be a musculoskeletal condition for the patient that does, or would incapacitate the patient’s ability to function in performing daily activities without immediate intervention; and if left untreated would result in the patient seeking urgent or emergency care at a medical facility.

This must be established with a complete neuro/ortho/biomechanical assessment. No other form of assessment may be used to establish the need for care. Subluxation, wellness or functional care does not meet the criteria for urgent musculoskeletal chiropractic care in the context of what has been communicated by Alberta Health.

Again we ask that you simply call the office and leave a detailed voice message.
Dr. Jana or Dr. Jamie will return your call as soon as possible.
