Treatments: What To Expect

The Beingwell Chiropractics team are good communicators, empathetic and passionate about health and wellness. In each consultation we listen to your description of symptoms, concerns and preferences and clearly answer your questions. Our doctors assess your condition and provide appropriate, realistic prognosis of treatments. We aim to alleviate your pain as fast as possible and also prevent the issue reoccurring.

It’s important to note: some physical conditions are treatable but also require lifestyle or exercise changes to completely eradicate the issue. Other severe conditions such as scoliosis are treatable but not curable. Alternatively you may benefit from just a single chiropractic consultation and a set of take-home exercises to achieve the best results. We recommend what is best for you.

Here’s an outline of what you can expect during a consultation.

First Consultation

  • Medical history assessment
  • A variety of tests are performed to assess your structure and movement.
  • Additional x-rays may be recommended.
  • Key specific exercises to assist with recovery and improvement

Follow up Consultation

  • Review of your symptoms and health
  • Follow up mobility tests and assessments
  • Education and advice
  • Self management plan and program

Duration

  • Initial Consultation: 45 minutes
  • Report of Findings Consultation: 45 minutes
  • Standard Consultations: 15-20 minutes

Your consultation starts seated as we take down your history. Next we can carry out joint mobility tests which often requires you stand or bend. The final stage is the treatment where patients lie down on the chiropractic table (bed).

Our chiropractors have a wealth of knowledge about the spine, the nervous and muscular systems, movement, exercise, and nutrition and are regularly invited as guest speakers at community and corporate workshops and events. We have doctors who specialise in family chiropractic care, nutrition, food allergies, sports medicine and orthopedics. Learn more about team and choose a chiropractor that suits you.
