WHAT TO EXPECT AT NT CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH & WELLNESS CENTRE
We have all experienced new social situations where you do not know anyone and everything is new and unfamiliar.
We pride ourselves on making you feel as comfortable as possible.
Our team at the NT Chiropractic Health & Wellness Centre will be guiding you through a series of sessions. Each session will build on the prior one.
These sessions will accumulate towards correcting the underlying cause of your problem. As part of our holistic approach, along the way our chiropractors will equip you with the necessary knowledge and tools to build consistent habits supporting your body.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
During your first visit, we are going to focus on you; discussing everything about you (or your child), your health concerns, challenges and your goals.
We are here to listen to your story and connect with you on a personal level.
Your chiropractor will perform a series of physical examinations assessing the health of your spine, nervous system and your body’s response to stress.
To aid our diagnosis you may referred for spinal x-rays. These are covered by Medicare for all Medicare card holders.
Your first visit is designed so that we can find the underlying cause of your problem. This approach enables our chiropractors to determine the best course of action for you which ultimately provides you with the best treatment outcomes.
Your first visit will typically last 45 minutes.
YOUR SECOND VISIT
During your second visit, we will be focusing on reviewing all of your results from the initial visit and focus on working with you to develop a carefully catered plan moving forward.
It is important to us that you fully understand your condition and more importantly, what has led to issues in the first place. We want you to be confident in making informed choices about your health right now and in the future.
During this visit, we will begin with your first chiropractic adjustment.
Your second visit will typically last 30-45 minutes.
After the first two visits, typical regular visits will be shorter.
During these shorter and more regular sessions, we will be spending less time discussing the problem itself and more time working on fixing it.
Our chiropractors utilise a variety of different adjusting techniques and will cater these adjustments based on their findings and your body.
Each adjustment you receive builds on the previous adjustment, with the end goal of creating a strong and stable spine over time.
Further appointments will include work on your body, and critical discussions about any habits relating to your lifestyle that could be holding back your progress. Review visits will be conducted where you will undergo some of the tests you had on your first visit. Review visits allow our chiropractors to accurately determine your progress. We don’t guess, we test!
HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO VISIT?
How often you come to visit us will depend on your situation.
Your chiropractor will help you understand the best course of action for you, and then work with you to find the best regular schedule for you. Our approach is preventative. What is the point in fixing the problem if it is just going to come back again and again? Once your initial symptoms have resolved, you will move into the corrective phase of treatment, whereby the goal is to restore your correct spinal alignment. During this phase, you may not need adjustments as frequently as you would in the initial period.
Most of our patients choose to continue to receive further care from our chiropractors to carry on an ongoing preventative/maintenance approach for their issues and this is what we recommend to increase chances of long-term success.
Your consistency with us will ultimately foster the best results.
