WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN MY CONSULTATION WITH MY CHIROPRACTOR?
Your first consultation may last 45-60 minutes. You will be advised to bring along any previous x-rays / scans to your visit with us. A full patient health history, spinal assessment and appropriate treatments are performed. It is preferable to dress comfortably.
Dr Diana will then advise you on further care for which you may continue at home, which may include:
- stretching & strengthening exercises
- postural correction
- healthy sleeping positions
- diet related to reducing systemic inflammation
- pain medication
- heat and/or ice therapy
Your follow-up consultation may last 20-30 minutes.
When there is an improvement in your pain and daily function, you will be encouraged to follow a well-needed "maintenance care" program!
WE ARE MEDICAL - AID FRIENDLY !
The majority of medical aids have coverage for chiropractic services in their health care plans. Our practice is contracted to all medical aid schemes for which we will claim on your behalf at full scheme rate (dependent on your scheme plan, and provided that funds are available).
If you wish to pay privately, you will be provided with a statement with each and every visit, for which you can claim directly from your medical aid.
Please call our offices for these rates. We do offer a pensioner and child rate too! (Card facilities available).
