Part Two – Examination and adjustment at Northcote Chiro (30-40mins)
With adults we will take postural photos and also complete a muscle, thermal and HRV (heart rate variability) scan to give us baseline data. This gives the Chiropractor vital information about the function of your spine, joints and nervous system. Your Chiropractor will then complete the chiropractic examination which may include orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic testing, which is relative to your problem. Your Chiropractor will then explain the findings and what to expect on your report of findings visit.
Children and Babies health history isn’t as long as adults, therefore a different procedure will be followed case by case and if no referral is needed most babies and Children will be adjusted on their first visit.
Part Three – Report of findings (1st follow up)
This appointment includes a video to watch as part of your care which explains how Chiropractic fits into the health care system. You will also receive your first chiropractic adjustment and any lifestyle advise needed. Your Chiropractor will explain your care plan based on your initial findings, and scans. Your care plan will include how many visits are required to achieve balance in your spine, and what/when exercises should be done at home to compliment your care.
