Your First Visit to Chiropractic Health: A Comprehensive Approach to Relieve Neck Pain, Low Back Pain, and Headaches.

What To Expect – Initial Chiropractic Appointment

Are you based in Victoria, Australia, and seeking relief from neck pain, low back pain, or frequent headaches? Check out this blog post – we’ll explain exactly what to expect in our initial consult.

With locations in Geelong and Craigieburn, we provide holistic chiropractic care to address your specific concerns and improve your overall wellbeing.

In the following blog post, we’ll explain exactly what to expect at your first visit and how we do things at Chiropractic Health.

The First Visit: Unravelling Your Health History

As soon as you step into Chiropractic Health, our warm and friendly team will greet you, ensuring you feel welcomed and at ease from the start. This visit is all about you!

Initially, your chiropractor will perform an in-depth health history, to help determine what’s going on and your reason for seeking a chiropractor.

This valuable information helps us gain insights into your unique health challenges and allows us to tailor our approach accordingly.

Diagnosing the Root Cause: Orthopaedic and Nerve Function Testing

To provide you with the most accurate diagnosis, we conduct thorough orthopaedic and nerve function testing during your initial consultation.

These tests help us identify any abnormalities or dysfunctions in your musculoskeletal and nervous systems that may be contributing to your neck pain, low back pain, or headaches.

Our focus is on understanding the underlying issues to develop a targeted treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

Postural Analysis: A Window into Your Health

Your posture plays a crucial role in your overall health, and it can significantly impact your neck, back, and head.

Following the history and examination we’ll conduct a detailed postural analysis to assess any misalignments or imbalances in your body’s structure. We utilise an application that tells us things like the shift your body has as well as your head weight (which is often heavier than it should be with poor posture).

By addressing these issues, we can alleviate pressure on your spine and nervous system, leading to reduced pain and improved wellbeing.

Tailored Treatment: Manual Chiropractic Adjustments and Beyond

Based on our findings from the health history, orthopaedic and nerve function testing, and postural analysis, we create a customised treatment plan specifically for you.

At Chiropractic Health, our chiropractors have undergone an extensive 5-year double degree in chiropractic and regularly attend external seminars and courses to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in chiropractic care.

Our main approach involves manual chiropractic adjustments, wherein our chiropractors use precise and controlled movements to manipulate the spine and joints.

These adjustments are designed to promote proper alignment, enhance joint mobility, and restore your body’s natural balance.

Additionally, we may incorporate other gentle types of manual adjusting, such as mobilisations, soft tissue therapy, the activator technique, drop piece, and pelvic blocking, to suit your preferences and needs.

Empowering Self-Care: Home Exercises and Lifestyle Advice

At Chiropractic Health, we believe in the power of proactive self-care. In addition to in-office treatments, our chiropractors will provide you with home exercises and lifestyle advice to support your healing journey between appointments.

These exercises and lifestyle adjustments will not only accelerate your recovery but also help prevent future issues and promote long-term wellbeing.

Holistic Wellbeing: Beyond Pain Relief

While we prioritize pain relief for neck pain, low back pain, and headaches, our chiropractic care offers additional benefits to your overall wellbeing.

Many of our patients report improved energy levels, better sleep quality, enhanced immune function, and a greater sense of balance and wellbeing after receiving chiropractic treatments.
