What To Expect

What happens on your first visit

On your first visit to the clinic you will be welcomed by a smiling face at the front desk, and asked to fill out some paperwork about your presenting condition and your overall health.

After the forms have been completed, it is time to meet with your Chiropractor and explain to them what has brought you along to the clinic, and what you are hoping to get out of your time here. The practitioner will then ask a number of other questions to gain a greater understanding of your condition and how they may be able to help.

If we believe you are a good candidate for Chiropractic care, we will then take you through a thorough examination including:

  • Postural Screening
  • Static/Motion Palpation
  • Orthopaedic/Neurological testing
  • Muscle strength/length analysis
  • Specific Chiropractic procedures

Once the Chiropractor has finished your examination, they may recommend further imaging, such as X-Rays. X-rays are taken for several reasons including:

  • To determine the condition of the discs (cushions between each vertebrae).
  • To determine if there is any degeneration.
  • To locate potential problem areas.
  • To rule out other pathologies (disease).

Report of Findings

The report of findings is done on your second visit after your Chiropractor has completed, recorded and analysed all the measurements required to assess your body and health concerns.

  • Explaining the cause of your problem, how it arose, and how to prevent a re-occurrence.
  • Developing a management plan to not only get you out of pain, but to prevent the condition from re-occurring in the future.
  • If the diagnosis is one that requires further investigation or specialist intervention, we will refer you to an appropriate practitioner.

Management of your condition may include:

  • Specific & gentle Chiropractic adjustments
  • Soft-tissue muscle techniques
  • Exercise prescription
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Ergonomic advice

Regular Adjustment Visit

It is vitally important to stick to the management plan created for you, as each adjustment builds on the one before it creating a healing momentum.

As you begin to improve your visit frequency is reduced, and rehabilitative exercises will be given to you to improve flexibility and stability. This will allow your body to completely heal and decrease the chance of a re-occurrence significantly.

Please feel free to ask questions as much as you like throughout this process.

Your case will be re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure we are doing everything we can to get you back on your feet as soon as possible!
