During an initial exam, Dr. Gary thoroughly reviews your health history, conducts range of motion and computerized spinal scans, addresses any questions you have, develops a Custom Care Plan based on your needs and goals, and discusses your first adjustment.

Every patient is different, but it should only take a few treatments before you notice an improvement.

The initial goal is to restore you to health if you are experiencing discomfort or have an injury. Once your initial condition is resolved we work with you to develop a Custom Care Plan that works for your health needs and goals. Some people prefer to have a routine tune-up to deal with the daily stresses of life. Others will want treatment only when they experience pain.

Every Albertan is entitled to Chiropractic care when they have been involved in a motor vehicle accident or collision, regardless of who is at fault.

Did you know? According to research by White & Panjabi (in their book Clinical Biomechanics of the Spine), when a vehicle is in a collision of only 13 km/h, it results in an acceleration of 2 G force on the vehicle, but 5 G force on a driver or passenger’s head and neck (One G force is equal to an acceleration of approximately 8 meters per second). Even low-speed impacts are sufficient to cause significant misalignment and potentially permanent damage if left untreated. As well summed up in the journal Dynamic Chiropractic (Injury With Low-Speed Collisions by Jeffrey Tucker, DC, DACRB), “Car crashes happen in literally one/two eye blinks. The point is that the head and neck experience more G forces than the car in low-speed impacts.”

Dr. Gary Klaudt conducts a complete and in-depth assessment of the injuries sustained in an collision and works with patients on a Custom Care Plan to restore them to optimal health.

Dr. Gary carries a specialty in bio-mechanical reconstructive Care with extensive experience in treating whiplash, concussions, and other injuries associated with the brain.

For how long or often that you see your Chiropractor is up to you, and it depends on how much injury you have had, how long you have had it, and what quality of life you currently live or want to live.

These factors are all significantly impacted by Chiropractic care. Read more about the full range of natural Health Benefits that Chiropractic care influences.

In general, Chiropractic adjustments do not hurt and instead often create a sensation of relief with most patients.

Certain spinal position adjustments may produce temporary discomfort which goes away quickly, but Dr. Gary advises patients of this possibility before performing these adjustments. 

Dr. Gary routinely adjusts using a variety of techniques based on patients’ individual needs and comfort. As an example, very specific adjustments are made to accommodate elderly patients, babies, and those suffering from chronic pain, injuries, or motor vehicle accidents.

Chiropractic patients commonly hear a popping sound like the sound heard when someone “pops” their knuckles. Your joints are surrounded by synovial fluid that contain traces of nitrogen gas. The sound is produced when a joint is realigned and the pocket of gas is released.

Our bodies respond to a variety of stresses that are placed upon us, which directly affects the muscles and bones related to our spine. Common stresses include:

  • Physical stress (e.g. falls, repetitive movements, long periods of sitting, physically demanding work, sports, accidents, injuries, improper posture, etc.)
  • Chemical stress (e.g. lack of proper nutrition, chemical exposure, medication side effects, etc.),
  • Emotional stress (e.g. work-related pressure, family issues, interpersonal conflict, busy schedules, trauma, etc.)

Our bodies absorb and store these stresses in various regions. Since the spine is responsible for supporting the structure of our entire body, it is directly impacted by the various areas of our bodies that experience stress, causing a host of other symptoms and health issues that you may not even be aware of. See a list of the Body Regions Impacted by Misalignment of specific vertebrae.

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest, non-invasive natural health treatment options available for a variety of body stress-related illnesses, ailments, and diseases.

Pregnancy can be one of the most important times to be adjusted because of the hormonal, emotional, physical, and physiological stresses that a mother’s body undergoes during this time. Gestational hormones in the mother’s body also make her musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones) more supple and receptive to adjustments in a positive way for both her and the baby.

The development of a baby in the womb is a process controlled by the neurological system of the mother. Optimizing the communication of a mom’s central nervous system can have profound positive impacts on the development of a baby.

Infant and toddler adjustments can be some of the most effective adjustments of any age group. Issues can be detected and corrected early before their bodies have a chance to develop compensation techniques. Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest, non-invasive natural health treatment options available and is proven to be gentle, safe, and effective for children’s health.

Dr. Gary Klaudt has been adjusting pets for decades and specializes in pet adjustment techniques. He has worked with animals within his practice since 1989, routinely adjusting horses, dogs, and cats. Most animals have a surprising reaction of excitement or appreciation after their adjustment.

Any creature with a spine can benefit from Chiropractic care!
