What to Expect
What to expect:
On your first visit with us, you will be asked to fill out some paperwork regarding your condition and overall health.
The Chiropractor will then proceed with a thorough examination which includes (If required);
- Postural screening
- Static/motion palpation
- Orthopaedic/Neurological testing
- Muscles strength/length analysis
- Specific Chiropractic Procedures
The next stage of the consultation includes soft tissue work (massage) on targeted area(s) that the chiropractor assessed as important to relieve the pain/issue.
Finally, the chiropractor will perform his chiropractic treatment using a variety of techniques (e.g. manual adjustments, mobilisations, drop table, activator, stretching…as required)
You may also need to be referred to one of our local radiology clinics for X-rays, or other scans, in order to have a better understanding of your condition.
The management of your condition will include:
- Soft tissue muscle techniques (massage, stretching, mobilisations)
- Then specific and gentle chiropractic adjustments (as mentioned above)
The management of your condition might also include:
- Exercise prescription
- Nutrition counselling
- Ergonomic advice
As you begin to improve, your visit frequency will decrease and rehabilitative exercises will be given to you in order to improve flexibility and stability.
This will allow your body to decrease the chance of re-occurrence of injury.
At any time feel free to address any concerns or ask any questions to the chiropractor. Your health and comfort is important to us so we will try our best to make sure your needs are satisfied.
