~ PREVENTION AND EARLY INTERVENTION ~
IIf you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate any apprehension you may have and make you feel comfortable.
Since Chiropractic care, Counselling and Massage Therapy may involve a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before; it’s important that we build a relationship of trust and comfort. We’ve found that one of the best ways to develop successful patient relationships is using communication to help you understand your diagnosis, how your problem came to be and how we can help resolve them. Then armed with your new knowledge, you can resolve your symptoms and prevent their return. Treatment thru prevention and early intervention!
The more you understand, the more you can be apart of your care and the better the results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
So, check us out. Get to know us. Then, contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.
First Visit: We will discuss your issues and you will undergo an assessment to diagnose your problem.
Second Visit: We will further discuss our findings, answer any questions and continue your care.
Subsequent Visits: A typical treatment visit will be much shorter, but just as important!
Your First Visit to Our Kamloops Practice
Patients often comment on the comfortable and friendly atmosphere at Health Quest. Our clinic mandate is to provide the assessment, treatment, products and education for timely and effective rehabilitation protocols and comprehensive wellness programs.
We Explain Everything First
Your first visit to our clinic will take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete the necessary patient history intake forms, perform a comprehensive physical exam and discuss the options and provide the appropriate care. It is important that we obtain a comprehensive medical history about you to improve our diagnosis so that your care is safe and appropriate. To save time on your first visit, please print and complete the patient intake forms before you arrive. Please add any information that you think is pertinent about your health or history of trauma, surgeries, pathology, etc.
After meeting your practitioner, you will undergo a comprehensive physical examination which may include: Orthopedic, Neurological and Biomechanical testing. (It is recommended that you bring a pair of shorts for the examination.) With the information gathered from the written history you have provided, radiology and the physical exam results, your recommended treatment protocols are determined and treatment is likely to begin right away. Be sure to listen to your practitioner and make the appropriate arrangements at the front desk for your next treatment before you leave.

Your Second Visit to Our Kamloops Practice
A Quicker Visit
Your second visit should not take near as long as your initial visit, as the paperwork and physical examination have been completed. Your subsequent visits should get right down to business and perform further recommended treatments and provide stretches, exercises and education.
What Your Visit Entails
Visits are likely to include further recommendations of stretches, the proper use of ice or heat, exercises, etc. to provide you with the most appropriate tools to improve recovery and obtain stability.
Be prepared for your visits; do your homework from the previous visit. Bring your list of questions or concerns and be patient with your body’s healing process. Proper healing takes time, and good things come to those with patience and those that do their homework.
Contact Health Quest now to schedule a time to visit.
Avoid relapse with regular visits.
After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length.
In a word: no. A typical visit may require just a few, highly-focused, minutes.
But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up what your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.
Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and we can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes. Maintenance can provide strength, balance, function and result in stability
We recognize your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
