What can a Melbourne Chiropractor do for you?
Chiropractors train vigorously for at a minimum 5 years at University to be able to assess, diagnose and if indicated treat patient complaints. They are qualified to take radiographs (X-rays), give soft tissue treatment, use instrument assisted treatment, manually adjust the spine and extremities (arms and legs), give rehabilitation advice, refer to other healthcare providers or for emergency care, write medical certificates and more.
What to expect?
Upon entry to any of our practices you’ll walk up to reception and check in. You will then be given a new patient intake form, usually takes about 5 minutes. After returning the form to reception you will take a seat again while the Chiropractor reviews your file. You will then be escorted into a room where you will wait for the chiropractor to arrive.
The chiropractors are trained to listen to your concerns and issues and synthesise the information to decide a course of treatment/management that is individually suited to the patient in front of them. This does mean they need to do orthopaedic, muscle and neurological testing to understand why you are having any musculoskeletal (muscle and skeleton) issues.
Following the examination will be a standard posture photo so together you can track any progress made in posture without having to get X-rayed. Then you may/may not require a radiograph if the Chiropractor is concerned about anything happening inside your body. The radiographs are usually done in just minutes and on site for your convenience, depending on the practice you attend.
Following all this comes the treatment, depending on the chiropractors diagnosis of your case they may utilise a number of techniques to assist. All our chiropractors are trained in atlas orthogonal, low force techniques such as drop piece and activator techniques, child chiropractic and pregnancy, as well as all the other techniques you might see or have heard of. If you have not had chiropractic treatment before the chiropractors will be aware of this and are experienced in giving you the best treatment while informing you of exactly what is about to happen.
After treatment you will go back to the reception desk and book your next appointment, request for radiographs or get a medical certificate, whatever your particular case desires.
