Giuntini Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre

Growth and Inspiration using Movement and Knowledge

It is important that your baby has symmetry, or balance, in both muscle tone and movement patterns.  So for instance, you want your baby to turn their head easily in both directions, reach for toys with both hands and eventually roll both directions.  Balanced movement is the foundation for balanced brain development.  That means if your baby moves well, the pathways in the brain will develop in a coordinated and efficient way.

Environment at Giuntini Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre

We want you and your children to be comfortable when you come visit us.  So we have provided a play area with books, puzzles and a play kitchen to keep children entertained and happy.  We also have a Therapy Dog, named Fluffy who provides cuddles and play time for the whole family.  Any mums who are breastfeeding, or bottle feeding, are encouraged to stay and feed their babies if necessary.  We even have a change area for those in nappies who might need to freshen up.

The Options We Provide at Giuntini Chiropractic

Dr. Edna will take a thorough history and make sure she understands what you want help with. Her exam will include observing movement and muscle tone, checking reflexes and noting which developmental milestones have been achieved. Several of the observations and tests merely look like Dr. Edna is playing with the child, but there is a lot of information being gathered while she connects with your child through play.

Any areas that need to be addressed will be explained to you during the first visit and your questions answered. Your child will also receive their first adjustment this day.  Chiropractors are trained to modify their care to suit the age of the child and special styles of very gentle adjustments are used for babies and young children.

The adjustment, or correction, includes light touch and gentle stretching.  Depending on the amount of joint restriction and age of your child, an Activator may also be used to get more movement into the joint.  This is a hand- held device that puts a gentle impulse into the joint.  The Activator provides a gentle impulse for the smallest patients with gradually increasing firmness for older children.

What to Expect

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel.  Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.

First Visit

Your Initial Consultation

At your initial consultation, you will fill in a brief history form detailing the component of your health that you would like help and advice with. It might be postural imbalances such as uneven shoulders or hips, low back pain or headaches.  The more information you can provide us, the better we can take care of you.

A Thorough Examination

My exam is designed to determine where the major problem is coming from and how it is contributing to your current discomfort.  I will check for postural imbalances, retained primitive reflexes, core strength weaknesses, range of motion of your spine and strength of your muscles comparing side to side.  A balanced body is a healthy body.  The more imbalances we find, the more you have moved away from health and are creating compensation patterns of movement.

Second Visit

Maximising Your Results

Each following visit will range from 5 to 15 minutes depending on how much is happening, how quickly your body is responding, and if you have had any acute flare ups. Again, you will be adjusted in your normal clothes, so if you come straight from work or a training session in the gym, that is OK. Generally the first week or two of adjustments are quite similar as we are trying to change the posture that your body is in. It is crucial that you do your exercises at home in order to maximise your results during this time.

Reinforcing the Changes

I encourage each patient to go for a 5 – 10 minute walk after their adjustment to reinforce the changes we have made to the nerve system and spine. Drinking plenty of water will also help your body to get rid of the toxins it has been holding and to improve your health.

Regular Visit

Getting to Know You

We take our time during the first two visits to make sure we understand your problem and to ensure you understand what we need to do in order to improve your function.  So between the second visit and your progress exam, a typical office visit may require just five to 10 minutes.

But don’t think the brevity of a regular visit lessens its value! With the groundwork laid, we can quickly size up the condition of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and get you on your way.

The Greatest Benefit

Like a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you can lose the momentum necessary to make the needed changes.

We recognize your time is valuable. So we do everything possible to run on time and minimize the impact on your busy life.
