Part One – Consultation and Examination at Northcote Chiro (40-60mins)
With adults, upon your arrival at the practice, a Chiropractic Assistant 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.
When seeing babies, children and pregnancy for the first time we base our procedure of examination, diagnosis and adjustment on a case to case basis. Your chiropractor will explain what to expect after the examination phase.
Part Two – Report of findings (40 mins)
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.
