After the investment of time needed on the first and second visits, many patients become concerned that every visit will be of equal length and intensity. This is not the case.

Avoid relapse with regular visits.

With the groundwork laid, chiropractors can quickly assess the condition of the spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way. A typical visit may require just 10 to 15 minutes.

East Bentleigh Health Group also recognises your time is valuable and do everything possible to run on time and to minimise the impact on your busy life.

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the necessary long-term changes required.

Benefits of Regular Visits
With each adjustment, your body continues to change, strengthening ligaments and tendons, retraining muscles, and forming new motor pathways as you go about your daily life.

Strengthening and retraining these muscles and soft tissues that support your spine will take more than one visit. In the same way you cannot get in shape with a single workout at the gym, chiropractic requires a program of care.

Your Recovery
The amount of visits required depends on several factors:
Your health goals
Age, physical condition and lifestyle
Stress factors
Adherence to recommendations
Implementing home care procedures

The Sweet Spot
If visits are too frequent, our efforts may be wasted the body may not have fully integrated the changes from the last visit. If visits are too far apart or you miss one, forward momentum may be lost. Each visit builds on the ones before.

East Bentleigh Health Group and Dr Papaleo know the correct visit schedule to produce the greatest effects at any given point in a treatment plan.
