What to Expect on your first visit to your chiropractor in Mona Vale?
At Mona Vale Chiropractic and Natural Therapies, the moment you enter our warm, friendly environment you will be made to feel totally at ease. Our experienced team will do whatever it takes to ensure that your visit with us is a pleasant one.
First we will prepare your file and conduct a thorough review of your health history so we can definitively identify your concerns and your health goals. Next your chiropractor will will perform a thorough examination incorporating orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic tests. Where indicated, further testing such as X-Ray MRI or other imaging will be arranged to provide more detailed information about a specific condition. Combining all this information gives us a clearer picture to be able to deliver the best possible recommendations for your health.
If chiropractic care is the right choice for you, your Chiropractor in Mona Vale may give you your first adjustment right away. You can be confident that, before this happens, we’ll talk to you about your proposed care, the available alternatives and any potential risks associated with our recommendations. The more you understand about the chiropractic process, the better the results are likely to be. We will provide you with home advice and arrange your follow-up visit where we will discuss your care in much more detail.

On your second visit to Mona Vale Chiropractic and Natural Therapies, your Chiropractor will ask how you responded to your first adjustment; and chat through where you are in your healing process - you will then be taken through your very own personalised 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 clarify your health goals so we can understand your priorities.
We will set out your entire plan detailing what care will be provided within the practice, which home exercises or lifestyle changes are indicated and any supplement, medication or dietary suggestions.
You will then receive your next adjustment and move to the front desk to setup your initial care visit schedule and also book a date for your full review when we reassess your results.
Of course, you’ll be greeted by our friendly reception team. Grab a tea or coffee, a magazine and unwind. We find that by allowing some buffer time before your adjustment helps to calm your nervous system and prepares your body for your adjustment.
The care you receive will be specifically tailored according to your pre-prepared treatment plan. All our adjustment and soft tissue techniques are tailored to the individual: A typical visit may consist of specific massage, spinal adjustments, acupuncture, exercise prescription or kinesiology when needed. At MV Chiro we understand that everyone is unique; so we use a combination of low force or high force techniques where necessary to cater for each individual’s unique need. We help people of all ages, sizes, those that have had surgery, those on medication, to those who are in acute pain or have a low pain threshold. All techniques and procedures will be discussed between you and your practitioner.
Getting the best results relies on consistency both in and outside of your visits to the practice. That’s why our patients book their full treatment plan in advance to ensure they get consistent high-quality results and to reserve the appointment times that suit best.
At the end of each scheduled treatment plan, we conduct progress exams to subjectively and objectively measure your progress and ensure that you are healing as expected. These appointments are a great time to check-in that you are breaking bad habits and are consistent with your prescribed exercises, stretches and supplements.
At Mona Vale Chiropractic and Natural Therapies, we look forward to helping you along your health journey.
