SIT HEALTHY ONLINE COURSE

How long do you spend sitting?

How long do you spend sitting at your desk during the day? Now add on the time you spend relaxing in front of the TV on the sofa in the evenings and perhaps the commute in the car or train on the way to and from work…More than 5 hours?

You’re probably sitting for much longer than you realise and have been doing so for many years.

We regularly see patients in our practice suffering with lower back pain and one of the main causes is prolonged sitting. Our bodies weren’t designed to sit for multiple hours a day and be immobile. We also know it is not easy to avoid being immobile if you work in an office.

Wouldn’t you love to put an end to those aches and pains and feel safe in the knowledge that you can be at your desk at work and still be healthy? Carefully crafted from our own research, the exercises we give to our practice members and our experience in practice, “Sit Well” is your solution to guilt-free, healthy sitting.

WHAT TO EXPECT

INITIAL CHIROPRACTIC CONSULTATION

 

Your first visit to the practice will consist of an initial chiropractic consultation and, if appropriate, a full examination. One of our trained clinic assistants will greet you at the reception desk and ask that you complete your health history details. One of our Technical Assistants will come to greet you and escort you to the consultation room where they will take some scans to measure the function of your nervous system.

 

Your Chiropractor will then meet you and go through your health history and carry out your spinal health exam.

 

THOROUGH SPINAL HEALTH EXAM

 

Following your consultation we will provide a full and thorough spinal health examination. For this, we will ask you to wear a gown that allows us to conduct the examination professionally. Your examination will typically last up to 45 minutes and provides us with the information about your spinal health in order to complete a report for you. Sometimes there is a requirement to take a set of spinal x-rays. These are only taken when necessary, and provide us with more detailed information regarding the health of your spine. Our x-ray machine is very modern and is on site at the practice.

 

After your examination, the chiropractor will escort you back to reception to schedule your second visit with our clinic assistants. You are welcome to bring a chaperone with you to your examination.

Your second visit will be a group session which we call the Pre-Care consultation.

 

During this session, we will explain what to expect what the tests mean so that you can better understand your results and your options for care. This will then help to guide you towards what works best for your situation and health goals.

 

From our experience, we find that the more you understand about how to get the most out of your care, the faster you will see results which will save you both time and money.

After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll provide you with a diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan. We call this the Report of Findings.

 

This is usually attended to on your third visit, which will take place as soon as possible after you have attended the Pre-Care consultation. This three-visit approach accomplishes several things:

 

  • Reduces the length of your first visit
  • Gives us time to correlate our findings
  • Avoids overloading you with too much information
  • Ensures that you fully understand our approach

 

In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of Dr. McCrossin, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.

GETTING STARTED

On each adjustment visit please come to the reception and sign in. Take a seat and as soon as the Chiropractor is ready for you we will ask you to enter the adjusting area.

 

CONSULTING AREA

The adjustment itself takes place in the communal consulting area. This innovative approach is preferred by many regular clients as it is much less formal than traditional methods of treatment – many even take time after their adjustments to rest, relax and even chat to fellow patients in this calming space. Of course, if you prefer to be treated in private then we have private treatment rooms.

 

We always recommend that you help yourself to plenty of water and take a short walk after each adjustment.

 

HOLISTIC APPROACH

Because N8 Health takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, we also offer sports massage, nutritional advice and Pilates.

 

If you think that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care,  contact N8 Health  to arrange a thorough examination in our practice.

HAPPY MEMBERS

YOUR JOURNEY TO WELLNESS

At your Report of Findings appointment, which takes place shortly after your initial consultation, your Chiropractor will tell you what we found, what we can do to help and how many sessions we believe it will take to help you reach your health goals.

 

We call the initial stage of care the “release” phase. This is because we are “releasing” the tension in the nervous system, unwinding bad habits that, in some cases, may have built up over many years. Effectively, we are re-training the body and our goal in this phase is to restore function and reduce symptoms if they are present.

 

During the Release phase, you will have regular re-assessments with your Chiropractor to check on your progress.

When you have successfully completed the Release phase of care, you will then progress to “Re-Build” – this is were we stabilize the many improvements you will have made during “Release”

 

Now that we have stabilized your nervous system we can introduce complimentary therapies in conjunction with your Chiropractic care.

 

Pilates and massage both compliment regular Chiropractic adjustments and we have seen our practice members achieve great results when strengthening their core with Pilates and releasing muscle tension with regular massage.

 

During Re-build, we will also introduce you to lifestyle changes you can make yourself such as exercises you can do at home as well as nutritional advice.

 

Your Chiropractor will continue to re-assess you to see how well you are progressing through Re-build phase.

Achieving optimal health potential is an ongoing journey and just like going to the dentist for a regular check up, many of our community who have completed the Release and Rebuild stages of their care receive Wellness Chiropractic care on a lifestyle basis.

 

Wellness Care is a lifestyle choice for our community whereby practice members have regular adjustments proactively to maintain their new level of health and function.

 

We designed our Ultimate Wellness Membership program to make Wellness Chiropractic care as convenient and as affordable as possible. You can find out more about it here.
