Q: WILL I NEED X-RAYS?

A: X-rays are not always necessary for our practitioners to treat you, however, if you do have any recent xrays or scans of relevance, please bring them along. We may also refer you for other more specific scans like MRI, CT or Ultrasound.

Q: WHY DO I NEED TO COME AND SEE YOU?

A: Majority of patients initially come to us in acute pain. Once your pain in relieved, we need to identify the primary cause/s of your condition, then formulate a plan to prevent your problem from re-occurring. This may involve specific prescribed exercises, ergonomic and nutritional advice and/or a regular ‘tune-up’ visit.
Once your pain has been relieved, prevention is the priority. Early intervention is the key to avoiding acute flare-ups of your condition.
Early signs of an acute episode may include- muscle and joint stiffness, tightness, discomfort associated with movements, headaches, fatigue, lethargy and pain or discomfort during physical activity.

Q: HOW DOES OUR TREATMENT DIFFER FROM TRADITIONAL CHIROPRACTIC?

A: North Sydney Sports and Chiropractic offer a new and unique approach in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injury. Our focus lies in the soft tissue structures, such as muscle, tendon, ligaments, nerve and fascia. This allows us to treat almost every musculoskeletal injury arising from poor posture, repetitive strain, workplace and sporting injuries. We use ART to achieve this.
As our treatment targets the affected tissues, it is not uncommon to experience faster results in healing, pain relief and biomechanical correction, than just spinal manipulation alone.

Q: HOW OFTEN WILL I BE SCHEDULED?

A: We do not believe in high frequency care plans.

Our goal is to get you better as quickly as possible, whilst giving you the skills to self-manage your condition through take home stretching and strengthening exercises. Initially we may require seeing you up to twice a week until your condition stabilises. Each individual heals at a different rate, so we will tailor your care plan to each individual.

Q: WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN MY FIRST VISIT?

A: After you have made your first appointment, we require you to fill in some paperwork with all your details so we can enter them into our system. One of our team will take you into our consultation room to ask you any relevant details about your health and well being, then ask you to perform some physical tests to try and determine the best course of action for your condition. If required we may recommend further tests like X-ray, CT, MRI or Ultrasound to diagnose the exact problem. Once we have a good idea of how to proceed, we will commence treatment (yes we will treat you on your first visit!) and advise you on the next necessary steps. We allow 45 minutes for our Initial consultations.
