Your Second Visit to the Chiropractor in Gladstone & Gracemere

Report of Findings

On your second visit to Complete Care Chiropractic, your Chiropractor in Gladstone & Rockhampton will discuss with you how you responded to your first adjustment; this gives vital information on where you are in your healing process - you will then be taken through your Report of Findings.

This gives a detailed explanation of Chiropractic care and how it is relevant to your individual situation. Your Chiropractor will make specific recommendations as to the most appropriate action to take in correcting your condition. You will have the opportunity to question and discuss your case and communicate your health goals so we can understand your priorities.

It is normally at this stage that many people realise that Chiropractic care offers much more than they originally thought and it soon becomes apparent that you don't need symptoms in order to benefit from Chiropractic care. Others are regularly introduced to the improved quality of life that regular Chiropractic care offers as a result of this discovery.

High Tech Help from Your Gladstone & Rockhampton Chiropractor

At our practice, we make use of some of the best technology available to help us obtain a better clinical picture of your health – so that, in turn, we can do better for you.

Our pre-adjustment consultation will consist of:

  • A detailed case history of your condition, including past episodes, past treatment (if any) and medical/surgical interventions.
  • A thorough physical examination including Orthopaedic, Neurological and Chiropractic testing.
  • X-rays - when necessary, we may refer you to local radiologists who understand the importance of taking Chiropractic x-rays. We have found that it is better for people to be weight-bearing (standing) during our spinal x-rays so that we can see how your spine adapts to carrying your frame when you are upright. This provides us with much more information than if your films are taken lying down.

In addition to 'Hi Tech' analysis, Complete Care Chiropractic in Gladstone & Rockhampton also utilise modern adjusting tables that have multiple Drop-Piece segments as well as Activator Instruments that can be used to deliver very low-force adjustments when appropriate.
