We strive to empower our clients with accurate, up to date information about Chiropractic Care and its wonderful benefits. We offer choices in the way that people may use our services.
We utilise different techniques to ensure great results.
First Visit at Frankston Chiropractors
To find out if we can help, we ask questions and listen.
On your first visit we will sit down with you and discuss your current health situation to assess whether you are a good candidate for Chiropractic Care.
If we think we can help we will progress to conduct a thorough examination. In adults this may include imaging such as x-rays and occasionally CT or MRI scans. Such imaging is typically not required in children.
You should allow 45 minutes for your first visit.
Your Second Visit to Frankston Chiropractic Centre
At your second visit to Frankston Chiropractic Centre we will tell you what we found and answer all your questions. By the time you return for your second visit we usually have the results of your tests. We will explain these results in a way that is easy to understand.
We will tell you what we have found, what we can do to help, how long it may take and how much it will cost.
Our practice enjoys high levels of patient satisfaction because we explain everything in advance. If we believe we can help you then care typically begins on the second visit.
You should allow 30 minutes for your second Chiropractor visit.
Regular Visits to Our Chiropractors
A typical visit will be much shorter, but just as important!
As well as discussing your progress, follow-up visits will involve repeating a few important tests that showed up from your initial examination to ensure we are on track. Your care will involve spinal adjustments - these are gentle specific movements to the spine and are performed differently depending on your age and type of spinal problem.
Other techniques may include extremity adjustments, cranial adjusting and various muscle techniques.
Stages of Care
When beginning Chiropractic care the focus is on helping to stabilise and improve the function of your spine and nervous system as quickly and easily as possible. Frequent adjustments are typically recommended during this level for maximum benefit. Often people with pain or other symptoms begin to notice relief during this level, and many people become aware of improvement in their breathing, flexibility and energy levels.
This intermediate level is designed to produce a major transformation and correcting of your long term concerns, tension patterns and posture. Generally the more tension that has built up and the longer the misalignments have been present, the longer it will take for joints, ligaments, muscles and other tissues to adapt. As the function of your spine and nervous system improves you will often experience improvements in the functions of your body and organs. Many people report dramatic increases in their strength and coordination, their clarity of though and energy levels.
This advanced level of care helps you to further improve the functions of your spine and nervous system and keep them working at their best. Most of us have many stresses in our lives that create tension and misalignments in our body and on our nervous system. Having your spine checked on a regular basis helps to keep your spine and nervous system as free of interference as possible. Keeping your body and mind flexible and healthy enables you to cope with stress better, to perform at your best and to feel more alive.
