    What to expect at your first appointment

    A thorough health history will be taken and you will be asked about your presenting complaint. One of our Petersham chiropractors will examine your standing posture, taking you through some gentle movements, and possibly use special tests to determine the cause of your symptoms. They will then explain your diagnosis and treatment plan, especially tailored to you. Treatment often involves specific massage or stretching of soft tissues (e.g. muscles, tendons and ligaments) and specific adjustments, gentle mobilisation of joints, to improve movement and promote healing.

    Your chiropractor may advise on exercise, posture, diet, and hot/cold therapies and may suggest modifying your activities to increase the treatment’s short and long-term effectiveness. Most chiropractic treatment is gentle and should not cause undue discomfort. If your injuries do require hands-on treatment of painful and tender areas, your chiropractor takes care to make you as comfortable as possible. The chiropractor will usually treat you on your first appointment. However, they may refer you to another medical specialist or health practitioner, if necessary.

    It’s important that you feel comfortable, so you may want to wear or bring loose pants or shorts.

    How long does it take to treat a condition

    Sometimes it is difficult to accurately gauge the time it will take someone to get better. Some patients start to notice differences straight after the first treatment. Others, depending on their condition, may need 4 to 6 treatments before they start feeling a change. However, at each consultation, your case is reviewed to make sure you’re getting the best course of treatment.
