Your First Visit

Chiro Adelaide boasts a warm, friendly atmosphere where clients feel at home.

Your appointment begins with the doctor performing an initial assessment, using a range of protocol and procedures, some of which include chiropractic, orthopaedic and neurological testing. From here, your doctor will determine if you have any spinal misalignments (subluxations) and may refer you for chiropractic x-rays to investigate your spinal curves further, if necessary. Subluxations can be caused by many things such as accidents and falls, poor posture, stress (physical/emotional/chemical), strenuous exercise or lack of exercise.

If required, you may also receive some chiropractic adjustments using a range of different chiropractic techniques. Your doctor will determine which technique best suits you and your individual needs. For example, some people may receive ‘manual adjustments’ of their joints, which will mean they will hear an audible noise as the pressure (nitrogen gas) is being released from that area of the body. Others with much more fragile spines (those suffering with osteoporosis or fibromyalgia) may receive much lower force and gentle adjustments.

It’s common you may have questions before you visit Chiro Adelaide.  We are only too happy to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 8231 0600 (Adelaide CBD).
