COMMON REASONS FOR SEEING A CHIROPRACTOR
WHY CHOOSE FORWARD CHIROPRACTIC?
You can book your appointment online via our website, or call the clinic if you have questions prior. If you cannot find an appointment time that suits you, please call us or send us an email. We should be able to get you in within 48 hours.
You will start by checking in and filling out an intake form. Your chiropractor will carefully review your form and ask further questions to develop a thorough understanding of your presenting complaint and overall health condition, or determine if any red flags indicate immediate referral to a medical facility.
The examination will entail a series of small assessments from checking your posture, feeling for pressure and swelling, analysing joint motion, as well as orthopaedic and neurological testing. The emphasis of chiropractic is in problem detection and not routine manipulative therapy.
If an X-ray is indicated, we will refer you out to our partner radiology clinic in North Melbourne. Information obtained from X-Ray includes the presence of anomalies and degenerative change, signs of trauma as well as the presence.
With all the information put together, you will receive a very accurate, calculated and controlled movement to your problem area only. Chiropractors term this an "adjustment". It only takes a split second and is usually painless. Most patients will receive an adjustment on the first visit.
Although most feel immediate relief after the adjustment, some may experience temporary reactionary swelling or some muscle soreness from guarding. This is normal and usually settles within 48 hours. Some acute stages of presentation may not feel any different for several days until inflammation has begun to settle.
