What Happens? & When?

 
What to expect on your first visit
To find out if we can help you, we ask questions and listen. On your first visit we will sit down with you and discuss your current health situation. We then perform an examination of your concern to assess whether you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. This includes a physical, orthopaedic and neurological examination. We may also refer for further investigations such as X-ray, CT or MRI scans. Such imaging is typically not required with children.
You should allow 40 minutes for your first visit
 
What to expect on your second visit
We will tell you what we have found, what we can do to help and how long it may take. Our practice enjoys high levels of patient satisfaction because we explain everything in advance.
You should allow 30 minutes for your second visit
 
Regular Visits
A typical ongoing treatment visit will be approximately 15 minutes and as well as discussing your progress, follow-up visits will involve repeating a few important tests that showed up from your initial examination. This way we can continue to monitor your improvement. Your care will involve spinal adjustments/manipulation, soft tissue therapy and home management advice, as needed.
Spinal adjustments/manipulations are gentle and specific movements to the spine and are performed differently depending on your age and type of spinal problem. Other techniques may include extremity adjusting and various muscle techniques.

Most follow-up visits only take about 10-15 minutes. We respect your time and will try our best to see you at, or very close to, your scheduled appointment time.

How do we work?

 
The chiropractors at Day Chiropractic Centre are equipped with a range of techniques both gentle and firm to suit your body and personal preference. In the initial consult we will put together a plan to best suit you and treat you comfortably.
 
Our Skill Set Includes:
 
Diversified
The oldest and the most widely used and taught technique that chiropractors employ which gives the "popping", or cavitations, of the joints.
 
Gonstead
A technique which was created by the son of an engineer who had an advanced insight of the mechanics of the spine who revolutionised spinal adjusting and gave a whole new perspective to chiropractic treatment.
 
Activator Methods
Use of a small, hand-held metal instrument that delivers a gentle but very fast thrust. The thrust is developed from the rapid release of a compressed spring inside the instrument. Cavitation, or "popping", of the joint typically does not occur. The majority of the adjustments are performed with you lying face down.
 
Sacro-Occipital Technique
A very light technique which revolves around gently setting the foundation of your spine as well as the upper most portions of your neck into the right place.
