Chiropractic Visits

First Visit
On your initial visit to Blackburn Family Chiropractic you will be greeted by our friendly staff that will show you around the clinic. Once seated you are asked to fill in a patient information form which will help to build a picture of your current state of health. Once the form is complete Dr. Nassim Varghayee will spend some time going through it with you and explain how chiropractic may be able to assist you with your health concerns.
Next, she will conduct a thorough neurological assessment, followed by various orthopaedic tests, postural assessments and physical examinations in order to determine if chiropractic is a suitable treatment option for you.
Once on the table your spine will be assessed for areas of subluxation and with your consent gentle chiropractic adjustments will be applied to correct these areas of nerve interference.
Most times your chiropractor will be able to apply adjustments on the first visit, however on some instances x-rays, CT or MRI scans may need to be taken prior to commencing treatment.
If you have taken x-rays or spinal imaging in the past, we advise that you bring them along with you on your initial visit.

Second Visit
On your second visit Dr Varghayee will go through her examination findings from the initial consultation as well as any x-rays you may have taken, and outline the most suitable plan of treatment for you.

Regular Visits
Your regular visits take about 20 minutes and will play the biggest part in your healing. Having regular chiropractic treatments will help to strengthen your nervous system, enable ongoing healing and prevent relapse of symptoms. After each regular visit, we encourage you to drink plenty of water to keep the joints hydrated as well as allowing for a short walk before driving off in your car to maximize the effect of your adjustments.
