Your first visit to a chiropractor

Your first visit to a chiropractor can be a daunting experience! You’ve plucked up the courage to make the appointment but have no idea what to expect.

Let me put your mind at rest… Your first visit to a chiropractor will take about an hour. We like to take that time with you to fully understand your complaint. We take the history of your problem, as well as anything else in your medical past that may be relevant. We are always looking for signs and symptoms of more serious underlying complaints that may need attention from your GP. 

We’ll then get you changed into a gown and go through the neurological and orthopaedic tests. If we feel you need further investigation with x rays or MRI scans, we can work with your GP or arrange them privately according to your preference.

Once we’ve finished gathering all the information, we’ll discuss what we found with you and suggest a treatment plan. Together, we’ll formulate a treatment programme that suits your lifestyle, while giving you the maximum benefits possible.

With your consent, treatment will start on that first visit so that we can start your road to recovery as soon as possible!
