Your 1st appointment

The first appointment is a comprehensive assessment. Patients can expect this appointment to take approximately 40 mins. It is important to dress comfortably and to arrive 5 minutes before your appointed time to complete the necessary patient information forms.

The doctor will;

  • Establish your medical history (bring any existing x-rays or scans)
  • Check vitals if necessary
  • Perform a physical examination including neurological and orthopedic tests
  • Perform a chiropractic and postural assessment
  • Diagnose your condition
  • Formulate your treatment plan
  • And proceed with your first treatment

Should the outcome of your assessment indicate the need for another specialist then the doctor will refer you accordingly.
