Beginning Care @ Gentle Chiropractic “We Want What You Want.”

Initial Visit

We will welcome you when you arrive and make you feel at home. We have parking for you on-site in front of the office building. We ask you to allow 60 minutes for your Initial Visit to give us plenty of time to cover everything.

Preliminary
Consultation

The first step is to meet with your Chiropractor to discuss your health concerns and expectations to see if we can help and if gentle chiropractic is right for you. We will ask a few questions and do a lot of listening. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and decide whether we’re right for you. If we can’t help you we will refer you to someone who can. If we think we can help, and you agree, we will proceed to the next step which is an Initial Examination. Your preliminary consultation will take 10-15 minutes. There is No Charge for your preliminary consultation. Preliminary Consultation Only If you simply want to discuss your condition and ask a few questions to see if gentle chi-ropractic is right for you, you can book a free Preliminary Consultation Only. If you decide to proceed we will then need to schedule an Initial Examination.

Initial
Examination

Your complete examination will give us a clear understanding of what is causing your problems and what we need to do to resolve them. It will involve orthopaedic, neurologic and chiropractic tests, including assessment of your posture, flexibility and balance. If we feel it is warranted we may request X-rays or other tests. X-rays are useful in showing the alignment, degree of degeneration and presence of unusual findings in your spine. They are both an insurance policy and a road map for your care. If X-rays are required we will refer you to Auckland Radiology at 101 Remuera Rd. Your Complete Examination will take 20-30 minutes.

First
Adjustment

We understand that most people want to feel better as soon as they can, so if it is appropriate we will give you your first adjustment on your initial visit. We will explain exactly what is involved. Your initial adjustment will typically be very gen-tle and very conservative to help you and see how you respond. We may also give you home-care advice. Your First Adjustment will take 5-10 minutes. There is no additional charge.

Subsequent Visits

Second Visit

On your second visit we will review your examination findings, including X-rays and other tests. We will explain our findings, how they relate to your problem(s), and what we need to do to help you. We will recommend a schedule of chiropractic care based on your findings and tailored to meet your needs. We will let you know how long it is likely to take take to resolve your problem(s) and the costs involved. You will receive your second gentle chiropractic adjustment and we will give you home-care advice to help your progress. Your Second Visit will take 20-30 minutes.
