Commencing your treatment at Brighton Le Sands Chiropractic could be your first step to improving your spinal health. We are a warm, friendly and helpful team, so please feel relaxed in making contact with our reception staff, book online or drop us an email.
Below we have highlighted what to expect when you visit our clinic for the first time and subsequent visits if required.
Please note: You do not need a General Practitioner’s referral to visit your Brighton Le Sands Chiropractor. And, please feel free to bring any prior scan, documentation or information along to improve outcomes from your visit.
Your first appointment within our clinic includes meeting the practitioner before commencing your clinical interaction. On the first appointment we take a history, examine the area of concern and 9 times out of 10, we commence gentle chiropractic treatment to soothe your injury. Sometimes we may need a scan to arrive at a diagnosis.
On your second appointment we will often re-examine you and discuss how you have responded to your first adjustment. This gives more information about the recovery or maintenance required.
1. Symptomatic Relief – This is aimed to reduce your pain, ache and severity of the injury as quickly as possible.
2. Corrective Care – This is where we identify the driving factors behind the case which may include posture, repetitive movements, lack of strength or flexibility or other reasons that exist in spinal cases. Once these are identified, we can alter, modify and treat the factors at hand. Corrective Care is about enhancing your function and knowledge.
3. Maintenance Care – As a part of a healthy lifestyle, we want to maintain and enhance health outcomes for you. Sometimes this includes some ongoing treatment depending on the needs, chronicity and severity of the case.
