Do you know what a Chiropractor does?
Do you really?
Generally when people think of Chiropractors they think of spine experts, but Chiropractic is much more than just the go-to treatment for back pain, neck pain and headaches. Chiropractors treat a vast amount of conditions by ensuring the nervous system (your brain, spinal cord and nerves) can perform at it's best. The nervous system is the master controller of your body. It transmits messages from the brain to the body, and the body to the brain, to allow a huge number of processes in your body to occur. From movement and co-ordination of your body, to the functioning of your internal organs, healing and beyond. When outside factors (these can be physical, chemical or emotional stressors) put strain on the nervous system, the messages between the brain and the body are affected, and the body can’t function at its best. Eventually this can lead to pain, but before the pain signal comes you may have already experienced a decrease in function. You might not have even been aware of it.
On your first visit, we get to know you.
Our highly trained and experienced Chiropractors will listen to you, and ask questions, to learn how they can help you. You can expect to discuss your medical history, and any current concerns, and undergo a thorough examination that may include orthopaedic, neurological and Chiropractic tests. If your circumstances require additional information in the form of X-Rays, we will refer you to a Bulk-Billing Radiology practice to have these taken.
Every body is different.
Your Chiropractor will explain to you what your examination has found, and will be able to discuss with you what treatment options are most appropriate for you.
