What to Expect on your first visit to Annerley Chiropractic
A warm welcome is number one on our list. At Annerley Chiropractic, the moment you enter our warm, friendly environment you will be made to feel totally at ease. Our experienced team will do whatever it takes to ensure that your visit with us is a pleasant one.
When you arrive, the first thing we will do is to establish a detailed history of your health and record it in your personal file. Next, we will perform a detailed health examination with a series of tests (this may include x-rays for more thorough information if we suspect you have a specific health condition).
By gathering all this information on your first visit, we are able to gain a better understanding of your overall health and also deliver the best possible recommendations for you.
If we find that chiropractic care is the right choice for you, Dr. Harris may give you your first adjustment right away. The more you understand about the chiropractic process, the more likely you will see positive results. We will also walk you through our recommendations for your follow-up appointment and future care if necessary.
What can You Expect on Your Second Visit
On your second visit to Annerley Chiropractic, we will discuss with you how you responded to your first adjustment; this gives vital information on where you are in your healing process – you will then be taken through your Report of Findings.
Our report will include a detailed explanation of chiropractic care and how it may be relevant to your body’s circumstances. We will make recommendations specific to your situation, and what actions you may take.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have. You can also communicate your short term and long term health goals with us so that we can better understand your priorities.
Our Approach to Chiropractic Care
We treat our patients with different forms of chiropractic care depending on our findings and what we find may be most suitable to your circumstances.
Symptomatic Care – This form of care aims to address your immediate health concerns as quickly as possible. Symptomatic care is the most intensive stage of care, and centres around correcting joint function and controlling any inflammation.
Corrective Care – This form of care aims to address any long-term and harmful spinal movement habits you may have. Corrective care may help with retraining how your spine moves. This includes addressing musculoskeletal symptoms that may take longer to respond to ordinary treatment. During the corrective care process, we will conduct full progress examinations in order to measure your progress along your journey back to health.
