My First Chiropractic Consultation

| Leigh-Anne Palmer |

My First Chiropractic Consultation

The other day I was thinking back to my first Chiropractic consultation and adjustment. This instantly made me giggle a bit – to think of the sheer terror with which I entered Dr Palmer’s office.

I Was Terrified

Now, I must mention that at this point of my first Chiropractic consultation, I was already dating Dr Palmer. We had met through a mutual friend, so my trust in him was substantial – nevertheless I was terrified. What if he breaks my back? What if he breaks my neck? Could I die?

I laugh now at these naive thoughts but at the time they were very real.

A Sense of Relief

Actually, my first Chiropractic consultation was quite funny, and not terrifying at all. When Dr Palmer tried to adjust my neck, I swiftly proceeded to jump off the Chiro table – this went on for a while until he eventually convinced me that I had nothing to fear.

Eventually I reasoned with myself – he’s a professional, he knows what he’s doing. The first neck adjustment was done… and wow! I felt great and there was no pain. Dr Palmer continued to adjust my neck, upper and lower back, and I couldn’t believe it! The adjustments were so gentle, and I instantly felt a sense of relief – especially in my neck and shoulders.

Commitment to a Corrective Chiropractic Care Program

The reason why I wanted to tell you about my first Chiropractic consultation, is that this memory made me realise that we sometimes forget that our new patients may be just as scared and apprehensive about getting adjusted as I was.

The fear that I had almost prevented me from seeing a Chiropractor, and to be honest, if I hadn’t known Dr Palmer personally, I probably wouldn’t have booked an appointment.

This is a scary thought, as I had been suffering with severe migraines for about two years, and the Corrective Chiropractic program that Dr Palmer put me on, has relieved these migraines – I no longer suffer with that pain on a weekly basis! In fact, I haven’t had a migraine since I went for my first Chiropractic consultation and committed to a Corrective Chiropractic Care program.

Diagnose the Cause of Your Pain, and Don’t Simply Treat the Symptoms

I encourage you – if you have been considering seeing a Chiropractor, or if you don’t fully understand what a Chiropractor does, give us a call on 031 562 9180.

Dr Palmer works from his practice – Align Corrective Chiropractic in Glenashley, Durban North. He has on-site X-rays and makes use of a method of practice that is the most researched method in Chiropractic. He aims to diagnose the cause of your pain, and not simply treat the symptoms (and this is where I had been going wrong).

You are welcome to ask for me personally if you would like to chat more about my first Chiropractic consultation and my treatment experience.

I hope that my first Chiropractic consultation experience and honesty leads you to consider Chiropractic in finding relief for your symptoms, especially if you have been struggling for years with the same pain.

We look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.
