What happens in a chiropractic treatment session?

If you’ve never had a chiropractic session before, the thought might be a little scary. Will it hurt? What happens? Will it really help me? All these questions and more might be running through your mind, so, to set your mind at rest, here’s an overview of what you can expect when you come for your first treatment.

1. Consultation

When you first arrive, our qualified and New York State licensed chiropractors will give you an initial assessment where we discuss your general health, and any health conditions you might have. We’ll also ask about your symptoms and find out how we can help you.

As part of your treatment, we may also discuss your diet and advise you on nutrition.

If you’d like to ‘meet’ us before you arrive for your treatment, please do have a look at our video for more information on how we approach your treatment: https://launchfit.co/Chiropractor-midtown-nyc/

2. Examination

We will perform a physical examination, checking your posture and your spine, and examining any areas of discomfort or injury, and we may also take x-rays of some areas to ensure we give the correct treatment.

We’ll then give you the results and put together a personalized, tailored care plan to give you the best possible outcome, advising you on how many treatments you are likely to need.

Your initial consultation and examination will usually last between 30 and 60 minutes.

3. Chiropractic treatments

Your sessions will usually last between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on your treatment, and may involve manipulation of your spine, joints and other areas of your body to release stress and tension, assist with blood flow, and, of course, treat the areas you are having trouble with.

You might sit or lie down depending on the treatment, and we may give you a gown to wear so we can access your spine more easily.

Manual techniques might include short thrusts to the spine to improve your movement, stretching your muscles to strengthen them and ease your movement, and moving your joints through different positions to ease tension.

Your chiropractic care will not usually hurt. If you have an inflamed or sore injury, there may be a little discomfort or minor pain, but if you do experience more pain do tell us immediately so we can adjust your treatment.

4. Other treatments

We also offer Redcord Sling therapy (https://launchfit.co/redcord-physical-therapy-manhattan/), acupuncture (https://launchfit.co/acupuncture-clinic-nyc-10001/), medical massage and other physical therapies, and will build a programme to suit you and your body.
