I am committed to making it as easy as possible for people to find out if chiropractic can help them with current symptoms and health.
To achieve this we often have same day appointments, we are open until 630pm and Saturday mornings.
I have onsite EFTPOS and HICAPS facilities with on the spot private health insurance claiming. I also accept referrals for DVA White and Gold Cards, Medicare(CDM) and WorkCover.
On your first visit you will be welcomed, you can help yourself to a drink or snack then fill in our new patient history form. Once you have filled this in you will see Dr Michael.
Dr Michael will discuss every detail of your case to understand if it is likely you are a chiropractic case.
He will listen carefully and ask questions, if it is likely your case could benefit with chiropractic care he will then commence an examination. If he believes someone else may help you better he will refer you on.
The examination is to discover what may be causing your problems and if it is likely Dr Michael can help achieve the results you are looking for.
It can include many things, commonly analysis of posture, ranges of movement, joint movement assessment, orthopaedic & neurological testing and if necessary X-rays.
Your treatment will begin when Dr Michael is confident he can achieve the results you are looking for, he will explain exactly what is occuring and develop a treatment plan with you to achieve those results.
Sometimes treatment is on the first visit, if further testing like X-rays are needed for safety and bio-mechanical analysis then it will be on the second visit. This is done on a case by case basis.
Treatment is highly varied on the individual needs of the patient to ensure the best outcome for your case, it can include:
- Spinal adjustment or manipulation
- Instrument assisted adjustment
- Soft tissue therapies
- Spinal traction
- Posture exercise
- Lifestyle advice
- Nutritional advice
