What to expect?
On your first visit to our clinic, your Geelong Chiropractor will discuss with you your health history, any concerns that you may have and what your health goals are. You will undergo a thorough physical examination, depending on what is indicated by your history and presentation. It may include posture, range of motion, reflexes, sensory testing, muscle function, balance, co-ordination, primitive/postural reflexes and others as necessary for your particular case. From this thorough examination, we can let you know if this is a Chiropractic issue or find another health professional to best help you on your journey to improved health.
On your second visit we will go over the results of the examination (and any x-rays if these were taken on your initial visit) and explain the findings in detail. We will give you specific recommendations and let you know all the relevant information upfront so you can make an informed health choice moving forwards.
We pride ourselves on our thorough, professional and caring service. Call us to make an appointment or discuss how we can best help you.
Unlike many other Geelong chiropractors, Shannon Avenue Chiropractic will make every effort to assesses and provide treatment as soon as possible to get you out of pain and moving towards your health goals.
