The consultation time will be longer during your first visit. A thorough approach ensures that you will be provided with the highest standard of chiropractic care.
Prior to consultation:
Upon entering the clinic, you are required to fill in our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment. If you have had a spinal x-ray taken before, bring it with you.
After completing the form, our chiropractors will be ready to see you.
During our consultation
History taking on your presented condition will be done in the first instance. You may be asked to put on a patient gown prior to your assessment.
Thorough assessments will be done, including postural assessment, orthopaedic and neurological. Chiropractic testing of your spine and related body parts will be performed.
Your examination findings will be explained to you. Your chiropractor will give you information and options available regarding your care and your health. Then treatment will be given if it is deemed suitable.
A typical regular visit may only last 20 to 30 minutes. It is a misconception to think that the shortness of a regular visit reduces its value!
With the foundation laid through your initial visits, we can quickly assess the requirements of your spine and nervous system, adjust you and send you on your way.
We are aware that your time is valuable. We do everything possible to run on time and to minimise the impact on your busy life. Just as with a regular workout at the gym, each visit builds on the ones before. Miss a visit and you will often lose the momentum necessary to make the changes you’re looking for.
