Once we have had a chance to meet you, take a full medical history, history of your presenting pain, we examine you thoroughly with orthopaedic tests, neurological tests and x-rays (if clinically indicated). We then study all of our findings, so that on……….
We report back to you exactly what we have found, show you any x-rays we have taken and explain what we can do to help, how many sessions it is going to take and how much it will cost.
The treatment plan depends on many factors, from how long you have had your problem, your age, your health and fitness levels and lifestyle for example, as well as your goal from treatment.
We will work together with you to achieve your goal. It is up to you to decide how long you would like to benefit from Chiropractic care.
Phases of care:
Our first goal is to relieve your symptoms as quickly as possible. The severity and chronicity of your condition will determine the length of this phase. Typically, the number of visits in this phase is frequent and can involve multiple visits to the clinic each week.
Rehabilitative / strengthen and corrective phase
During this phase of care, the goal is to remove the root cause of your problem and to restore optimal function. This phase of care is also dependent upon the severity and chronicity of the problem. The frequency of care can still be multiple visits per week, but is unlikely to be as frequent as the relief phase of care. This phase usually includes in-house core stability strengthening exercises to support the improvements made in the relief care and support the improved function.
Once your body has had the chance to heal, we believe it is important to continue with wellness care by having periodic adjustments to help prevent relapses and future problems and enable your body to continue to function at its most optimal level. Your lifestyle, health goals and practitioner’s advice will determine the frequency of care for you.
How long you decide to benefit from Chiropractic care is always up to you.
