Your first visit will be 45 minutes, during that time your chiropractor will take a full case history. Then you will be asked to change into a gown, and given a thorough physical examination, including blood pressure, orthopaedic and neurological testing.
Before the start of your treatment, your chiropractor will explain clearly and in detail, the results of your initial examination, using models and books where necessary.
Your chiropractor will then explain the proposed treatment plan, and what you are likely to feel, both during and after your treatment. At this stage your chiropractor can give you a guide to how long it will take to achieve your health goals.
Your first treatment usually involves you laying on your front, side, or back on the treatment couch whilst your adjustments are being done. Then your chiropractor will usually use either soft tissue massage techniques or trigger point therapy on surrounding areas; depending what your individual case requires.
At the end of your first treatment, your chiropractor will give you specific, relevant advice to help speed up your healing process in between your treatments. A short course of treatment is often required to resolve your symptoms. The number of treatments is dependent on the length of time you have had your problem, and any exacerbating factors.
