Lots of people visit a chiropractor for low back pain and neck pain or a variety of other aches and pains. However, you don’t need to be in pain to visit a chiropractor, we have some patients who come to see us with no specific pain at all! They have perhaps just noticed a general stiffening up and loss of flexibility or want advice on how to stay fit and active.
Once ‘fixed’ some patients want to remain feeling great and so pop in from time to time for a check up. Others may be forever grateful to leave pain free and are fortunate enough to never need to see us again. Whichever path you choose, at Revive Chiropractic you are not pressured down any particular route, you decide.
All new patients require an Initial Consultation (even if you have seen another chiropractor previously) and this will take approximately forty five minutes to one hour. The chiropractor will take a thorough case history and then do a physical examination to find out the cause of your pain or discomfort. A report of findings is included and this is where the chiropractor will explain the diagnosis and discuss what chiropractic treatment will do to address the problem. You will be encouraged to take an active role in your chiropractic care and so there is time available for you to ask questions about your treatment.
In most cases the chiropractor will begin treatment on your first visit (time permitting however in most cases treatment will take place).
