What happens after my first visit? What is a Report of findings appointment?
If we believe we can help you get back to doing what you love the most without restriction, you may then proceed with a paid Report of Findings appointment with Dr. Shanon( Chiropractor). We will then explain carefully your condition in details during your report of findings appointment. This will give you an opportunity to understand how you can fix the cause of your problems instead of treating only the symptoms. Our priority is to offer you long lasting solution to your health.
I have never been to a chiropractor before, is chiropractic safe?
All forms of physical therapy involve risks. This is why we pride ourselves with a comprehensive intake process including clinical history and a detailed physical examination to minimise any risks and to ensure that we have the full picture of your health prior to starting any care with you. Everybody is different and requires different care technique. We will discuss which approach is best suitable for you. We will also keep you informed at every step along the way. To our highest standards, we want to ensure safety, efficiency and comfort of our patients.
What is that cracking noise? Will I get cracked?
This ‘pop’ noise is simply gas escaped in between the joints. It is not harmful and is often heard while moving or realigning the spine. It is similar to when you crack your fingers. Most importantly your spine will be adjusted! This means that if you do not like the cracking noise, Dr Shanon can use other chiropractic techniques that suit your preference so that your body can heal most effectively.
Does it hurt?
Any discomfort is usually temporary, lasting only seconds or minutes. Dr Shanon uses gentle techniques when required. The amount of force we use when we perform a chiropractic manipulation is minimal. Dr Shanon uses mainly precision and skills to move the joints. We are proud of our reputation for a safe, specific and gentle care that suit different age groups and demographics. This is the reason why our patients continue to refer their friends and family members to our clinic.
Do I need a referral from my GP to see a chiropractor?
Not at all. Chiropractors are primary health practitioners. You can see a chiropractor without a referral. Dr Shanon works closely with GPs. We keep your GP informed of your progression when necessary. If you are eligible, GPs may decide to provide you up to 5 EPC (enhanced primary care) visits which are covered by medicare.
How many adjustments will I need?
It completely depends on you, your health goals, the severity of your problems. It also depends on how healthy you want to be? Based on Dr Shanon’s findings from her history and examination process, she will begin you with a care plan specifically tailored to you.
Do you see pregnant women or children or old people?
Yes, Dr Shanon uses appropriate, gentle and safe techniques/ approaches to help pregnant women and children in need of chiropractic care. We also cater for geriatric population. We all have a spine and we need to keep it healthy.
