When you arrive you’ll be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Relax because help is on its way!
You’ll be greeted on your first 30 minute visit to our office by one of our wonderful Chiropractic Assistants. If you have any previous X-rays or previous case notes, you would have brought them with you.
While you’re filling out a brief one page questionnaire to start the process of us getting to know who you are, and the needs that you have, you’ll be sitting in our reception area and listening to nice soothing music.
You will note that all of the magazines are up to date and that there is a lot of inspirational and informative reading material.
Next you’ll be taken into one of our consultation rooms (on time!) where you’ll meet your Chiropractic Doctor who will introduce themselves and start by asking you exactly what it is that you want from Chiropractic.
You will have an opportunity to outline any of the reasons that have brought you here and what you wish to achieve through Chiropractic.
Your Chiropractic Doctor will then briefly explain how Chiropractic works. They will then take a health history and conduct an orthopaedic and neurological examination. A decision will be made at this point about the necessity for an X-ray.
X-rays are used by Chiropractic Doctors to ascertain the condition of your spine. The X-rays are taken out of our chiropractic clinic although you will not be X-rayed if there is a chance that you may be pregnant.
The Chiropractic Doctor has to consider all of the information gathered in the examination and to study your X-rays. A decision needs to be made as to whether your needs will be best served by Chiropractic. We will go over everything during your Report of Findings.
