Your first visit is often described by patients as the most comprehensive health assessment they have experienced. We focus our attention on finding out what is happening in your body and identifying the cause of your pain and symptoms.
We will clearly explain what you can expect at our clinic and how chiropractic could benefit you, and your family.
You will be welcomed by our friendly and knowledgeable reception team and asked to fill out a detailed health questionnaire before you meet your Chiropractor. Your doctor of Chiropractic will then spend some time going through the details of your complaint and any relevant history and lifestyle factors. You will then have a thorough examination, including testing the function of your spine and nervous system and relevant functional and orthopaedic tests specific to your condition.
Chiropractors are experts at detecting spinal dysfunction and we can quickly find out if you are a chiropractic case or if we need to refer you to another health professional or for further testing such as scans or blood tests. If you are a chiropractic case then there is no other therapy or treatment that is likely to help you as much.
We will discuss with you if we feel you need to have x-rays taken and clearly explain the costs involved. X-rays help us to see exactly what is the condition, structure and alignment of your spine and often prove invaluable in getting the best result for you.
In most cases you will then return for your second visit so your Chiropractor has time to review your case and analyse your x-rays, if taken. At this visit you will have a report of findings where we explain your problem and how we can help, how long it may take and the costs involved. You will be able to ask any questions and if you are happy to commence care it can begin right away.
