What to expect
Refresh Chiropractic is a place where excellent service is a priority and we strive to make you feel comfortable and “at home”. The first visit to Refresh Chiropractic will be approximately 45 minutes in duration. This allows the Chiropractor to perform a health history and physical exam in order to diagnose the problem. The Chiropractor will then explain the likely diagnosis and the appropriate management. If the condition is able to be treated by Chiropractic, a treatment will be performed on the first visit. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to all your treatment visits. Other essentials to bring with you are your health insurance card (if you are covered for Chiropractic), any relevant previous imaging such as x- rays/CT/MRI, and the results of any recent investigations such as blood tests. The subsequent visits are 15 minutes in duration. This time is mainly spent on the Chiropractic treatment, with follow-up questions and further examination if required. Advice and exercises may also be prescribed.
