Eat Play Thrive Magnifying Glass

1. Initial chiropractic assessment and consultation

This 30-minute appointment involves extensive discussion, in particular general background information will be collect and then more specific questions related to your symptoms and/or condition. A thorough chiropractic exam including general tests such as pulse and reflexes, as well as specific orthopedic and neurological tests are performed. These tests assess range of movement, muscle tone and strength and neurological integrity. A posture analysis is often indicated and therefore included. Other diagnostic studies such as X-rays, MRI scans etc are sometime indicated for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

2. Diagnosis and recommendations

Findings from the assessment and consultation will then lead to a specific diagnosis. Once diagnosis is established it will be determined if your symptoms/condition will respond to chiropractic care. Options here therefore include:

  1. Establish a chiropractic treatment plan
  2. Refer to another healthcare professional (we have an extensive network of highly qualified and trusted professionals who we have worked with over the years)

3. The chiropractic treatment plan

The chiropractor will establish specific goals related to your individual requirements. To reach these goals a specific number of chiropractic visits will be recommended. A chiropractic visit involves adjustments to key joints. For more acute symptoms, a treatment recommendation of 1 to 2 chiropractic visits per week for 2 to 4 weeks can be expected. For individuals looking to optimize movement, function and performance, a less intense treatment plan off approximately one treatment a fortnight might be expected. At Eat Play Thrive you can expect a treatment plan to address a number of lifestyle related issues and therefore additional recommendations may include some or all of the following:

  • Strengthening and stretching exercises to improve muscle balance, strength and coordination
  • Patient education to improve posture through repetitive daily activities e.g. at your work station
  • Other treatments such as massage, heat/cold application and nutrition
