There will be plenty of time for you to explain what is wrong. You will be asked for details of your previous medical history. After taking a thorough case history, the chiropractor will perform a comprehensive examination and an in-depth biomechanical assessment to find out what is wrong and determine if chiropractic is likely to help.
The clinics chiropractors will always aim to treat you on your first visit unless x-rays or further investigation is required.
The clinic offers 5 individual consultation rooms to give you privacy and confidentiality during treatment.
This will be given at your first visit or later if X-rays or further tests are needed. We will explain what is wrong, what can or cannot be done and what you should expect. The most appropriate treatment plan for your condition will be outlined
Treatment usually involves precise gentle manipulation, called an 'adjustment', of the spine and other joints. Chiropractors also incorporate other gentle techniques such as ultra sound therapy, taping, soft tissue massage, dry needling. This is combined with advice and patient education.
The course of treatment will always be tailored to your individual needs. Typically, acute recent complaints respond quickly between 3-6 treatments. Chronic long standing complaints take longer, typically between 6-12 visits. The average number of treatments is 6. Thereafter, occasional treatment may be required to maintain improvement.
Acute recent conditions often respond quickly and dramatically. Chronic longstanding problems generally take longer to respond. We can help most, though not all, patients even when other approaches have failed.
If your problem has become chronic (longstanding), or re-occurs frequently, you may benefit from periodic check-ups to maintain improvement. Much like regular servicing for your car!
