If you’ve never had any chiropractic care, you might be wondering just what the experience is going to be like. Of course, it’s completely normal to be a little bit anxious about trying something completely new, at Ellerslie Chiropractic, our goal is to put you at ease right away.
Visiting a chiropractor is quite similar to appointments with other healthcare providers, but here we do things a bit differently. For starters, Shelley will be there to greet you warmly, in person — not by a receptionist behind a desk like in most doctor’s offices. We want you to feel like family! We’ll ask you to complete a short health questionnaire and then we’ll chat with you about what you would like to achieve.
We’ll discuss the health concerns that brought you here. And to help us determine what your body has been trying to tell you, we will start with a set of physical assessments. This may include motion tests, palpation, reflex and balance tests, muscle strength comparisons, and organising x-rays (if needed). These assessments will give us a baseline of your current health and inform the care plan we’ll create to get you feeling better.
Chiropractic care is means to help maintain and balance your health. The best chiropractic care comes with a strong, professional relationship, built on trust and with you being transparent about your concerns and us being clear about what we can do to help. Always feel free to ask questions, and we’ll take plenty of time to make sure you feel comfortable and confident about your individual care plan. We’re here to be your trusted partner on your journey to a healthier, happier you.
