Initial Consultation & FAQs
At your initial consultation, you will be greeted by a member of our reception team who will confirm your name and contact details before you see consult one of the chiropractors. They will then take a comprehensive medical history, conduct a thorough examination and, once a diagnosis is made, recommend the most effective treatment.
Will I receive treatment on my first visit?
Once a diagnosis has been made and you would like to proceed with the treatment recommended, then appropriate treatment will be given on your first visit.
Sometimes further investigations such as x-rays or MRI scans need to be carried out for a diagnosis to be confirmed or made. In these cases the time frame for treatment will be recommended to you by your chiropractor.
What should I wear?
We advise you to simply wear loose-fitting clothes. Changing rooms and gowns are provided when necessary, so if required, please request one from a member of our reception team on your arrival.
At the initial consultation a thorough case history will be taken; followed by an explanation of the relevant anatomy; a thorough orthopaedic, neurological and highly specialised chiropractic examination; an explanation of the findings and the best way to alleviate the problem; and then, when appropriate, expert treatment.
