Your ﬁrst visit will begin with a consultation with one of our Practitioners. They will listen while you describe any health concerns which have prompted you to connect with us and also ﬁnd out about your health goals.
A thorough examination will be performed, which includes state of the art digital posture and range of motion testing. If required your Practitioner can refer you for x rays or an MRI.
Once your Practitioner has gathered all the information they need you will be scheduled for your second visit. Prior to this appointment they will review everything you have discussed, process and assess the results of the digital testing and formulate their best possible recommendations for a personalised care plan that is going to help you achieve your health goals.
On the second visit you will return to the practice for your Report of Findings.
Your Practitioner will go through all the results of the digital analysis and other testing performed at the first visit and explain why you would be a good candidate for care in order to reach your health goals and answer any questions you may have. You will be given your care plan and all financial information will be explained to you.
If you agree and would like to begin the recommended care plan you will receive your first adjustment or treatment on this visit.
Chiropractic Adjustment Visits
You will visit the practice at regular intervals as laid out in the care plan your Chiropractor recommended for you in order to have adjustments to address spinal misalignments.
A misalignments of the spine are a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological joint changes that compromise nervous system function which in turn may influence organ system function and general health.
By correcting these misalignments and restoring (and maintaining) normal function of your body, you can then begin the process of restoring a state of health by repairing any damage that produced your symptoms – as nature intended by allowing your body to heal itself as it was designed to do.
Physiotherapy Treatment VisitsA Physiotherapy treatment will consist of a combination of techniques tailered completely to you as an individual such as:
Education and Advice
General advice about activity and lifestyle often plays a major part in making sure that issues do not recur. A physiotherapist may recommend simple things like taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight, along with improvements to your posture and lifting technique.
A physiotherapist will often prescribe a programme of exercise. This may include general exercise such as swimming or walking. Most often, the physiotherapist will prescribe a programme of exercises designed to strengthen and/or increase mobility in a specific area. This will be particularly common in relation to muscular or joint problems.
Mobilisation and Massage
These types of manual therapy can help to ease pain or stiffness, enhance mobility, improve circulation, and help you to relax. Physiotherapists are highly trained in such techniques, and use them to help ease your symptoms or aid your recovery.
Our Physiotherapists are able to K-tape and strap to provide support for a painful area, allowing normal activity to be resumed more quickly and pain to be reduced.
Progress Review Visits
Throughout your care it is important to reassess you in order to conﬁrm you are objectively improving. You may be feeling great (even quite early on) but symptoms are simply our body’s way of communicating. The presence or absence of symptoms is not a marker for health and optimal function.
This is why at regular and agreed points in your care we will re-perform the digital testing and other pertinent tests to ensure you are progressing as expected. With this newly gathered information we can recommend the next stages of the care plan. This is just one of the many advantages of utilising our software as it allows us to track and demonstrate how your body is changing rather than just taking our word for it!
