WHAT TO EXPECT
WHAT TO EXPECT
Initial Spinal Consult & Examination
Once your appointment is confirmed, we will email you an online intake form to understand your health concerns and how we can help you. Upon arrival, your Chiropractor will go through a detailed health history and physical examination (postural exam, range of motion exam, orthopaedic analysis and neurological integrity) to determine your spinal health. If needed, you will be referred for x-rays to better understand the condition of your spine and adjustments performed to help alleviate acute pain. This process takes 30 minutes. Xrays are done off-site at Mercy Radiology, Auckland Radiology or The New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
The major purpose of the examination is to analyse the condition of your spine and nervous system and how it is functioning, locate any areas of subluxation, and rule out any contraindications. If your case is not suitable for chiropractic care you will be advised accordingly and referred to the appropriate health care provider. In times of acute pain, we may adjust the spine to ease the pain.
Report Of Findings & First Adjustment
Your examination findings and spinal health will be written and discussed with you helping you understand why your body is suffering. As each patient we see is unique, your Chiropractic treatment will be custom tailored to your needs and goals. Our Chiropractors are committed to helping you find a solution to your concerns with the highest level of hands on Chiropractic Care. This marks the beginning of your treatment. This visit is scheduled for 20 minutes.
Follow Up Treatments
The process of correcting spinal misalignments is called an adjustment. By applying a specific and precise force in the right direction and at the right time, changes in the position and motion of spinal bones can be made. Over time this process helps correct abnormal structural and neural patterns. Generally, the longer the problem has been present, the longer it takes to fully correct.
The specific techniques chosen will depend on your age, condition and comfort levels. Our Chiropractors are highly trained professionals and have a range of techniques to suit individuals from newborn to the elderly. In the hands of a qualified Chiropractor, adjustments carry much less risk than pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs and many common daily activities.
Your follow up visits are scheduled in advance to help you achieve the best results possible. This visit is scheduled for 10 minutes.
