Your First Visit
Your first visit with us is designed to get an overall picture of your current health status in order to be safe and thorough with you. When you arrive for your first visit, you will be greeted by one of our friendly assistants who will ask you to complete some information about your health history and current lifestyle.
The Chiropractor will:
* complete a thorough health history with you, asking questions about any specific complaint you may have, as well as questions about your overall current health status.
* complete an examination of your spine and nervous system, check your posture and examine the way your spine moves.
* perform any orthopaedic and neurological testing that is required, and feel you spine, including the surrounding muscles, for the presence of imbalance or subluxation.
* examine any injuries or concerns regarding other areas of the body, including the hips, legs, shoulders and arms.
At the conclusion of your examination, the chiropractor may wish to have some x-rays taken of your spine or an injured area to accurately measure alignment issues or to assess the extent of an injury. Rest assured that we will take only the required views, and if you have had x-rays taken recently you may not need to have any taken at all.
After your consultation, the Chiropractor will carefully review your x-rays and compare them with the results from the examinations performed to assess your needs thoroughly. The results will be presented to you on your next visit so you will be clear on what care plan will be required for you to receive the most effective and sustainable outcome.
Chiropractic adjustments are the most essential part of your care.
Spinal joints that aren’t moving correctly can choke or irritate nearby nerves. Chiropractic adjustments may add motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption. When your body is functioning better, it has a greater advantage for healing itself.
Many people are aware of what it feels like to be run-down and out of alignment. Additional to pain, tell-tale signs may be joint stiffness, excessive tiredness and poor concentration. We recognize that getting your body back into a healthier state with improved joint mobility, improved posture and better muscle tone is a great start to getting your health back on track.
Like lifting a heavy rock off your toe, our patients often report a pleasant sense of release directly following their spinal adjustments.
Sometimes a specific, highly accurate thrust is used. Or an instrument delivers carefully directed energy. Or a slow, constant pressure is used. Several areas may be adjusted, or just one. Sometimes a popping sound is heard.
If you are familiar with Chiropractic care and you are seeking a chiropractor who can continue your care in the style you are accustomed, our Chiropractors utilise AK, SOT, Gonstead, CBP and activator methods to support clients who have a wide range of needs.
How to Feel Great?
Because we include adjustments to help your body correct itself, most patients report a sense of well-being and ease after care. It’s like feeling that your body is back in the position it belongs so you can function freely and comfortably.
Everyone May Benefit
Newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery patients may qualify for Chiropractic care. Your Chiropractor will thoroughly asses your personal needs and, if care is possible, your adjustments are naturally tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
If you wish to find out for yourself, you are welcome to schedule a no-obligation consultation to discuss your health concerns.
