What does Chiropractor Treatment Involve?
Chiropractic is a course of treatment which will benefit your overall health and well-being. The number of treatments prescribed depends on the nature of the condition, how long it has been present and what you want out of the treatment.
- Initial Consultation: We will take a full and detailed medical history and carry out a thorough physical, orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examination. Other tests, such as x-rays or MRI scans might also be necessary.
- Second appointment: We will explain the findings from the initial examination, including x-rays or scans, and then discuss the diagnosis and our recommended course for treatment. We want to make sure we answer all your questions, which will result in better long-term results.
- Follow-up appointments: The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the condition, how long it has been present and the ultimate goal.

Most patients can feel results within a couple of weeks or a few treatments. Some patients may experience recovery within 48 hours of treatment. For chronic pain or severe disc injuries it may take several treatments over several weeks. It often takes time to train the body how to move differently and prevent aggravation of the injury.
