Your first visit – consultation and examination
Your first visit will take approximately one hour but we do ask you to arrive a few minutes early to fill in a little paperwork if you haven’t already done this online before your appointment. We will need to take a medical history and check for any signs and symptoms that might mean certain types of treatment are not right for you. Please bring a list of any medication you are taking. Your chiropractor will then take a full case history and perform an appropriate physical examination which will include checking reflexes, flexibility etc.Please wear appropriate clothing for the examination. Sportswear or anything loose fitting is fine. If you would like a friend or relative to accompany you on any of your visits they are more than welcome.
Once the history and examination are complete your chiropractor will be able to explain their diagnosis and treatment plan. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. We value your input and we will take your preferences for treatment into account.
Once we have recorded consent to treat, your appointment will finish with treatment. This may be quite gentle to begin with in order to minimise the possibility of post treatment soreness. We often like to send you away with advice, stretches or exercises that you can do following treatment.
After your treatment you’ll be taken through to reception to book your next appointment. Sometimes we advise booking a few appointments in advance. This is to help you find the times in our diary that suit you best. You won’t be asked to pay for these sessions upfront.
If, after your appointment you have any questions or issues, please feel free to email or telephone the clinic and we’ll do our best to respond as quickly as we can.
