For your first appointment, we would ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment time in order to do some paper work. Also to bring with you your Manitoba Health card. If the patient coming in is under 18, we ask that a parent or guardian come with them in order to sign a consent form please.
For your first appointment, We will get you to fill out paperwork and then when Dr. Suderman or Dr. Kaczmarek is ready they will come get you and speak to you regarding your symptoms, your history and what has brought you in to see them. They may ask you to stand up, to walk, to lift one leg at a time to see how your body moves. Once you have become acquainted and they have a better understanding of the situation it is time for the adjustments! This will likely involve the drop table and a series of gentle manual adjustments. After your treatment you may feel loose or a little sore. Your entire first visit can take up to twenty minutes.
Subsequent or follow-up appointments usually take up to ten minutes. Relief can sometimes be felt right away or may take some time and again you should drink plenty of water after.
At this time, there is not someone at the office who can speak low German, so if translation services are needed, please bring someone with you. It’s not a problem, we are a family friendly office! As such, children are more then welcome as well.
