Your First Visit to our Practice
The moment you enter Spine & Wellness Health Center, you will feel relaxed by our warm friendly environment and enthusiastic staff!
After completing your patient questionnaire, the next stop is the consultation room. Your specially trained practitioner will spend some time with you, making sure you understand how and why we do things, and we will want to talk about about your current health issues and what we can do to help you.
We encourage you to ask as many questions as you like!
We then perform a thorough examination to determine how best to care for you.
The examination will consist of several assessments to show us disturbances in your nervous system or other problems. We use state of the art technology to accurately assess your problems. The tests are painless and non-invasive.
The two most important test we do are 1. digital postural analysis and 2. standing full spinal postural x-rays.
1. Digital postural analysis and photos:
We take standing digital photos and use state of the art software to analyse your posture. Areas of spinal stress, muscle tension, postural changes, and the likely progression of your posture with ageing is determined. Information gained is graphed and stored on computers so we can monitor progress as we bring you to better posture.
2. Digital X-ray analysis
Full Spinal digital x-rays are taken to determine the condition and position of your spine, stress areas, and the likely progression of your spine with time.
If we determine that we can help you we will invite you for a second visit to review the findings of the postural photos, X-ray analysis and other findings with you in detail.
Our front office manager will assist you in scheduling a time for your second visit…usually the next day!
Your Second Visit to our Practice
On your report visit we explain what we found and how we may be able to help you.
One of our consultants will greet you and take you to the consultation room. We will provide information that will explain the next steps in your chiropractic care.
We will review the findings of your xrays and posture scans. A program of care you will be explained to you (including costs). Of course, any questions or concerns that you have will be answered.
Your Regular Visit
On a typical visit you will sign the client register at the front desk.
When it is your turn, you will be escorted to a room to prepare for your treatment. The chiropractor will assess any changes in your health status to determine what areas need to be corrected for the day and answer any questions you may have.
These visits usually only take 5-10 minutes. Sometimes a therapy will need to be used which may take an additional 10-15 minutes.
Periodically we will do a progress check to monitor your response to care and make an individualised care plan. Thankfully we now have the technology to remove the compensation points and your back pain.
