Following your Examination visit, your Chiropractor will reflect upon all the information discussed and the results from the Examination Visit and at this second visit will provide a Care Plan to answer the three most popular and important questions:
Can you help me?
How long will it take?
How much is it going to cost?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine, cranium and other soft tissue related areas and reviewing any x-rays or tests, your Chiropractor will discuss recommendations with you.
If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, this will be discussed with you. If your Chiropractor believes we can help you, we will recommend a Care Plan based upon your goals.
Course of Care
Patients will generally begin their course of care at the conclusion of the Care Plan visit. This may include spinal adjustments, and/or soft tissue therapies. Chiropractic Care is not a passive treatment. We work together. The Chiropractor has their responsibilities and you have yours, so the care provided can be as effective as possible. You will have any and all questions answered and will fully understand what is expected before care begins.
Prior to leaving this second visit, patients will be instructed on a wellness programme to be conducted at home. If you are in pain when you first come into our clinic this may include advice regarding ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your success.
Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customised wellness plan. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture, proper movement of the spine, a balanced nervous system, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control, drinking plenty of water and stress relief activities.
