WHAT TO EXPECT
Your First Visit
Your Consultation is your chance to meet your Chiropractor and tell them what you are experiencing, what has happened so far and how you want to be and feel. Your Chiropractor will then complete a full Chiropractic assessment of your spine, including neurological, orthopaedic, postural and wellbeing tests. You do not need to undress at any time, just wear comfortable clothes!
Your Second Visit
Your Results appointment includes a full explanation from the Chiropractor of what they can feel is happening in your body, an agreement of the best care plan for you and your first adjustment.
Your 'Be Well' Call
Your ‘Be Well Chiro Call.’ An optional half hour zoom call to learn the easy wins you can do at home and key points of Chiropractic you may find pertinent to your care. We encourage everyone to come on at the beginning of care but this can be done at any time.
In your adjustment visits your Chiropractor will ensure to deliver the best and most appropriate series of adjustments that your body needs on that day, with the intention that you leave the adjustment feeling more at ease (less tense/ less pain/ more movement). Like anything which is new to your body, these visits will feel different in the primary phase of care compared to future appointments.
Primary Phase of Care
In the initial stages of care the goal is to introduce movement and help the body unwind and let go of the tension and improve symptoms. We focus on improving the function and movement of the spine to allow you to feel better as quickly as possible. The intention of the primary phase is to achieve your first goals with you, whether that is being able to walk 5 miles again or simply sleep with less pain.
Secondary Phase of Care
This phase is to support your body continue to coordinate and move efficiently, as you introduce more physical activity and to build your resources to support your wellbeing. We expect at this point you would consider returning to an activity you may have been avoiding or to start an activity you didn’t think was possible. The secondary phase is completely focused on stability and allowing your spine to settle into its movement pattern, whilst exercising if possible and getting stronger.
