What Happens On Your First Visit
Your first visit will take approximately 45 minutes. We are respectful of your time and always strive to be on time. We initially ask you to spend some time filling out our New Chiropractic Patient History Form.
What is included in the initial consultation?
Thorough case history and review of previous health complaints.
Comprehensive spine and nervous system examination.
X-rays taken of relevant area if necessary.
Report of findings and diagnosis.
Sleeping and postural advice.
Will I need to get x/rays done?
X-rays of the spine or other tests maybe recommended during your initial visit. X-rays form an essential part of determining the exact health of someone’s spine. X-rays show clearly the alignment of the spine and will also indicate any spinal degeneration which maybe present. X-rays are also used to help confirm the presence of spinal subluxations. We take the health of your spine and nervous system seriously. Our thorough approach to your case helps to ensure that you will be provided with the highest standard of chiropractic care possible.
Will I get any treatment on the first visit?
Yes. After your chiropractor has completed the examination and explained the diagnosis, treatment to the relevant area is made.
Follow up visits:
Standard consultations can vary from 10 – 15 minutes. A small history and examination is conducted prior to treatment.
