At Trinity & Leith Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Our approach is simple.
The body's natural state is good health, but often we lose this on our way. Chiropractic improves the function of your spine and nervous system, which are central to maintaining good health. It's not just for back pain as many people think. If you get the spine and nervous system functioning well you will be surprised at all the other health benefits it will bring. We believe that health is one of our most valuable possessions.
We have two approaches to care as follows:
1. Pain Relief and Corrective Care
When most people seek care in our practice they have one goal - to get out of pain. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:
- Undertake a focused history, physical and neurological examination
- Explain your condition to you
- Try and uncover and explain the underlying cause(s)
- Suggest a plan of care to produce the fastest results possible
- Describe your likely outcomes such as reduction of symptoms, improvement of function and return to normal daily activities
- Offer ways you can participate in your recovery
- Explain how you can maintain and improve your health and wellness care
Your Initial Appointment and subsequent Report of Findings will go through all of this as well as suggesting how many treatments you need initially as well as how frequently you need them. Relapse can occur if care is discontinued too soon.
2. Proactive or Wellness Care
Once you are out of pain your chiropractor will talk to you about how to best maintain this new situation. Periodic chiropractic visits will help detect persistent underlying problems that may need support, or new conditions that occur as your body continually compensates to its environment.
Maintaining your chiropractic treatments with reduced but regular appointments, e.g. monthly, can really help to keep that spring in your step and assist in your overall vitality. Just like you go to the dentist regularly, you need to have your spinal health checked regularly.
We will also discuss how introducing specific, tailored, changes into your own lifestyle - what you eat, how you think and taking up more exercise can really bring significant health benefits to you.
Our desire is to see all our patients abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favour of the emerging wellness model.
You're in Charge! Whether you just want to get out of pain or go that step further and improve your health and enhance your life, we are here to help you. Remember, it’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible.
