What to Expect

Welcome to East Bentleigh Health Group. We invite you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care. If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, we’d like to discuss that with you.

Since chiropractic care involves visits that build on each other, it’s important that our relationship with you can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance.

Initial Consultation

Your first visit with us is a fact-finding session aimed at getting an overall picture of your current health situation. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by one of our assistants and asked to complete some information about your health history. This paperwork can also be downloaded here and filled out ahead of time.

You’ll then see Anthony for an examination and X-rays, if they’re necessary. We’re able to adjust you right away on this visit if needed. It is important and helpful that you bring with you any X-rays, CTs, MRIs, or other examination results you may have. In total, you can plan on being here for about 45 minutes.

The Second Visit

On your second visit we report and discuss what we found on your previous visit and how we may be able to help you. Anthony will carefully explain everything so you know what to do to get the best results. You’ll also receive a chiropractic adjustment and we’ll discuss a plan for the future based on your individual situation.

This visit takes 20 to 30 minutes in total.

Return Visits

With each adjustment, your body continues to change, strengthening ligaments and tendons, retraining muscles and forming new pathways. 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 visits will be fewer and shorter as time goes on and your health returns. This depends on several factors:

  • Your health goals
  • Age, physical condition and lifestyle
  • Stress factors
  • Implementing home care procedures
  • Adherence to your care program

Typical visits require just 10 to 15 minutes.
