Your First Visit
On your Initial consultation (1st visit) we will go through your presenting condition/s. This involves a thorough assessment so we can understand exactly what is going on. This includes a discussion of history and an assessment which includes a full postural, physical, orthopaedic, neurological and Chiropractic examination. X-rays may be required (if indicated) these are Bulk Billed through Medicare. NOTE if you have past imaging- including X-rays, CT scans, MRI or ultrasounds please bring them along to this consultation.
On your Report consultation (2nd visit) all the findings from your initial assessment are explained and we have a discussion about how Chiropractic may be able to help you. Treatment usually occurs on this visit.
All Your Other Visits
Usually involve treatment which may involve adjustments (manipulation or mobilisation), muscle techniques, stretches or advice. This treatment is to help you get better, minimise recurrence and improve your health and well-being.
These are optional visits. Once you start to feel good and are symptom free you may choose to maintain things. Maintenance frequency is different for each person as every body is different.
They may prevent further occurrences or detect and help to correct new problems before they become serious (and often before you're even aware they exist). Like other preventative things in life, e.g., healthy diet, exercise or dentist visits, maintenance visits aim to help you stay well, to save time and money.
