Day One (60-90 minutes): After we take a thorough history and catalog symptoms, we are ready to take pictures. I will take a picture of the head and face, and then the full body straight-on and from the side. NCR bodywork is given for 25-40 minutes depending on the case. After the bodywork is complete, I will test your head, spine and joints to determine which parts of the neuromuscular system are unstable and which nasal passage is to be treated. Then I position you on the treatment table based on your test results and insert the lubricated balloon (instrument) into your nose. The balloon is then inflated, quickly deflated and removed. I recheck you to make sure the treatment is complete and you are finished for the day. Usually on this day I send my clients home with a “Post-NCR Care Sheet” which details what to expect during and after the course of treatment.
Day Two (45-60 minutes): After I check in with you and we discuss how you are feeling, the NCR bodywork is given, followed by proprioceptive testing, the treatment and the recheck.
Day Three (45-60 minutes): After I check in with you and we discuss how you are feeling, the NCR bodywork is given, followed by proprioceptive testing, the treatment and the recheck.
Day Four (45-60 minutes): The same as days two and three, and after the recheck I take pictures again. Then we will discuss when I will follow up with you. Depending on your case and how treatment went, I usually follow up with my clients in one to four weeks to see how they are doing and how their chief complaint has changed over that period.
