Your first visit - Longlevens Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic

Your first visit

Your first visit is important

Your first visit is the opportunity for your Chiropractor to discover everything important about your injury and to get to know you. Your Chiropractor will make a detailed examination of your problem area, discuss with you their findings, and then recommend the best course of action for you. This is known as a ‘Report of Findings’. The Report of Findings will clearly outline to you what your injury is called (diagnosis), how you are most likely to have got it, and how Chiropractic can help.

Treatment

Treatment can involve a number of different techniques – chiropractors have more ‘tools’ in their ‘toolbox’ than you may think!  If suitable, the primary technique used is joint manipulation (often involves the ‘crack’ that chiropractors are known for), which involves gentle specific adjustments of the joints by hand to mobilise restricted or stiffened areas of the body that are not working properly.  Treatment is also supported by various types of soft tissue work such as massage, specific stretches and physical modalities such as dry needling (a form of acupuncture), all carefully selected to suit you and your particular injury.

All courses of treatment are individually tailored to get you back to functioning at your best, as pain free as possible, as soon as is possible.  Every course of treatment is supported by self-help instruction programs for you to follow at home or at work, which aids your recovery, gives autonomy, and ultimately prevents recurrence of the initial injury even after the course of treatment has concluded and you’ve made a good recover.  This empowers you, the patient, to keep on track and make your recovery permanent and not reliant on intervention.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health (The British Chiropractic Association)
