What To Expect

First Visit - Initial Consultation

This appointment is all about getting to know you and your health goals. We do this by discussing your health history and performing a thorough physical examination of your spine and nervous system.

From this consultation we will be able to let you know if you are in the right place and if we can help.

Further imaging, such as x-rays, may be required to rule out pathologies and to locate problem areas. X-ray cases are referred out and are fully bulk billed with medicare. NQ X-ray are conveniently located across the road from our practice at Campus Shopping Centre.

Please allow 30 minutes for this appointment and we ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to fill out the new client form.

Second Visit - Report of Findings

At your second appointment we will explain what we have found and how we can help you. We will give you our recommendations to help you achieve your health goals. This typically includes a schedule of care, postural advice and home care exercises. If you are happy with our recommendations we will proceed with your first adjustment and first step towards achieving your health goals.

Standard Adjustment Visits

Standard visits include the chiropractic adjustment.  An adjustment is a high velocity, low amplitude gentle force to the spine to correct dysfunctional vertebral joints (subluxation).

It is important to adhere to the schedule of care created for you, as each adjustment builds on the one before it, giving your body the best chance of healing.

As your spine begins to stabilise and improve, your visit frequency is reduced. Exercises will also be given to you to improve flexibility and stability.

Your case will be re-assessed regularly to ensure we are guiding your health on the right track.
