1st Chiropractor Consultation & Treatment (1 hour)
A full medical history is taken by the Chiropractor to ensure that Chiropractic is a safe and appropriate treatment for the presenting symptoms. Patients will be asked about past and current illnesses, medications, previous accidents or surgery and a description of the current condition.
Once a full history has been recorded you will undergo a series of basic health checks followed by a series of neurological; orthopaedic and range of motion assessments. These tests help to determine the reason for the pain and to identify any positions that trigger the pain.
In most instances you will then receive a treatment and will be advised upon the optimization of your chiropractic care.
First appointments take longer than subsequent appointments and can last anywhere between 40 – 90 minutes.
