Welcome to Dr. For Moms Perinatal & Pediatric Natural Health Center
The first step to becoming a patient/practice member at our center is to call and speak with one of our practice member coordinators. She will direct you on your next steps and answer any questions you might have related to location, appointment times, fees and such. You will be required to complete an appropriate health profile needed to initiate care. This includes standard contact information and questions regarding your or the practice member’s health history. You can download this ahead of time, complete it at home, and bring it in when you come for your appointment. When you arrive at the office you will meet with one of our practice member coordinators who will get you started on any of our paperwork if it hasn’t already been completed and get you acquainted with the center.

Your current condition history will be taken so we have a detailed account of your present concerns. A chiropractic examination consisting of general orthopedic and neurological components, range of motion, and a postural evaluation is then performed to assess your current health status. X-rays may be required if your past history or current health status warrants such.
Specific evaluation procedures are done depending on how many weeks pregnant you are. The sacrum, along with the other pelvic bones, are the most critical to assess when pregnant. Problems in this area lead to low back pain, sciatica, pain down the leg, pain into the groin area, or walking with your feet turned out. The evaluation is similar to that as described above, but modified for your pregnant body and its special needs, so it will be comfortable and safe.

Children are very much at home in our center and parents can rest assured that the evaluation and treatment for children from newborns to teens is catered to their very specific needs. Your baby or toddler will have an orthopedic and neurological exam that is very specific to their developmental level.
A properly functioning neuromusculoskeletal system is critically important for the dynamic growth that takes place in children. Your child can benefit from correct positioning (in strollers, car seats, slings etc.) to developing good posture habits, carrying backpacks properly, getting some help during developmental challenges, and recovery from injuries.

After your initial evaluation, your chiropractor will discuss her findings, describe the specific chiropractic treatment that will be used, and answer any questions you may have. At this point you are set for your first adjustment.
Following your first adjustment, she will give you the details of your plan of care and the recommended frequency of your appointments to get the results you want. Your chiropractor may also have some specific comments or recommendations for you. You will then be scheduled for your follow-up appointments based on your personalized care plan by one of our practice member coordinators.
On your second visit we will review with you our findings, discuss options for treatment, explain if and how chiropractic care can help your condition, and answer any questions you may have.
If you have any questions that were not answered here, please call our office to speak with a practice member coordinator at (403) 247-9301.
We are only a phone call away and would be pleased to help.
