Your Initial Chiropractic Consultation
Chiropractors are professionals concerned with the assessment, management and care for people of all ages. The primary purpose of your initial visit is for your chiropractor to learn more about you, your health and to establish your goals. To be able to do this adequately, the first appointment will be a full half hour, consisting of a comprehensive history and a full examination using a variety of testing and assessment tools. This examination will determine whether or not you have subluxations (nerve interference) hindering your body’s natural ability to adapt, repair and regenerate.
Dependent on your specific concerns, we may require x-rays to be taken to fully evaluate your spinal health and develop an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Your Subsequent Appointment
On your second visit, your chiropractor will review the findings of tests performed in your initial consultation. If your chiropractor recommends commencing chiropractic care, and you are happy to proceed, you will receive your first Chiropractic Adjustment during this visit. During this appointment, your chiropractor may also provide recommendations for other services and programs to help you achieve your goals.

How long do I need to come for?
How long you choose to benefit from Chiropractic care is always up to you. It really depends on your goals. If you are simply after pain relief, then that may take anywhere from one visit to a few months worth of visits. If you want to correct the underlying issues and get back to performing at your best, then that may take anywhere from a few months to a few years.
