What to expect during a chiropractic consult with Dr Carrie:
A thorough history where we discuss you or your child’s health in it’s entirety
A comprehensive physical examination, which assesses neurological function, muscle function, and of course spinal function (the exact examination depends on age and history!)
Then we stop to discuss all findings – normal and abnormal, talk about a management plan, discuss the risks and benefits of chiropractic, as well as any other nutritional or lifestyle changes you may require
Finally we perform adjustments to the spine or body where needed, plus additional muscle, tendon or neurological techniques
You walk out with a booklet filled with information (because she knows pregnancy and mama brain can make you forget most things!), plus her personal mobile number to contact her whenever you need, and a welcome pack including a small gift! And most importantly, another appointment to follow up on how your first adjustment went
