What to expect

We’re thrilled that you’re considering chiropractic care with us!

To begin your chiropractic care, we’ll see you over two initial longer visits. In these sessions our chiropractic doctors will learn about you, where you’re at in your health journey, and where you want to be. Once we’ve determined that chiropractic care is right for you, we’ll provide you with a tailored care plan.

First Visit: Understanding You

In your first visit, we gather as much information as we can about you. Our chiropractors will ask you questions about your clinical background, lifestyle habits, current health situation, and your reasons for visiting us. We’ll discuss your wellness goals and what you want to achieve. We'll assess the function of your whole body, concentrating on your spine and central nervous system.

This initial visit is important. It ensures that we have all the information we need to create a tailored plan for you to meet your goals and maximise your health. You can expect your first visit to include:

  • Insight Neuro-Scan. This comprises three tests designed to assess your nervous system function, how well you adapt to stress, the energy used by your spinal muscles, and your brain-to-body connection.
  • A chiropractic physical examination to determine the function and health of your body’s muscles and joints. Neurological and orthopaedic tests will be undertaken if required.
  • Posture analysis to check your spinal alignment and stress points, both standing and seated.
  • Assess whether X-rays are required. If so, these will be taken at Auckland Radiology, West Street Medical.

We’ll give you the chance to ask any questions you may have. If you’re in pain, we’ll give you instructions for at-home care. Typically, we will not perform chiropractic adjustments on the first visit. We need to have adequate time to review our findings, in order to make the best possible recommendations for your care. Allow for 45 minutes for this visit.

2nd Visit - Report of Findings

During your second visit, we’ll present our report of findings to you. You’ll be given a detailed explanation of exactly what we found from your Neuro-Scan and the other tests conducted during your first visit. We’ll guide you through any X-ray images and show you where interference is occurring in your nervous system.

We’ll discuss chiropractic care and how this can help you, and recommend options to address your specific needs. You’ll also be introduced to our Living Wellness Strategy and encouraged to adopt it in your daily life so you achieve the best outcomes from your chiropractic care program.

You’ll be informed about the costs and available payment plans, if needed - after all, it’s important to us that you’re able to afford the care that you need.

And then, if you’re ready to begin care, we’ll do so.

It can be helpful for our new members to have a partner or family member present as we review your report of findings. We encourage this, both for the support it provides you, but also for their understanding of chiropractic and what your care will entail.

Your Care Plan

Your care plan lays out the chiropractic care and visits required to return you to optimal health. Everyone is different - so your plan will be specific to you and based on where you are in your health journey.

You may be scheduled for weekly, fortnightly or monthly chiropractic adjustments, and this frequency will change as you continue with your care. You’ll spend no more than fifteen minutes at each appointment.

Your chiropractor will continually monitor your progress to ensure you are on track to achieve your health goals. As your care progresses, we’ll also evaluate what’s working, or what’s not, and make changes depending on your body’s needs. It’s important to remember, chiropractic is a journey. Our aim is to get you to the point where your care is about prevention and maintenance – not about reactively addressing a particular problem.
