What To Expect When You First Chiropractor Visit

We like to think of ourselves as a caring, compassionate and professional Chiropractic practice. So when you arrive you’ll be greeted by one of our super friendly and efficient receptionists at the front desk.

It’s their mission to make you feel as welcome and as relaxed as possible. Providing you a friendly environment and an experienced team, we’ll do all we can to put your mind at ease and ensure your experience with us is pleasant.

Your First Visit

There’s some paperwork to do. A New Patient Questionnaire to fill in, this is where we find out some details about you, your health concerns and how we can help.​

If you’d like some help completing the form, one of the team will be right there to assist you, or of course you can fill it in yourself.​

The New Patient questionnaire helps us get to know you and your health. It helps us understand your condition and gives us insights and details of your medical history.

After you have filled out the New Patient paperwork one of the team will introduce you to your Chiropractor. They will discuss with you, your areas of concern, your health goals, your expectations and to see if chiropractic care is what’s best for you and what will benefit you most.​

​This appointment takes about 45 minutes.

We like to identify the cause of your problem and the chiropractor will do a thorough chiropractic, neurological and orthopaedic examination and in some cases that require further investigation, you may be referred for an x-ray, ultrasound or MRI.​

Once we have all the information we need and the results of your tests are clarified, we will have a clear understanding of the cause of your condition and how to move forward.

Treatment can commence, providing you with relief and in time resolve the cause of the condition itself.

Usually treatment can begin on your first visit, however in some cases treatment may have to wait for all the necessary information and results to come in.

Your chiropractor will take the time to explain to you in easy to understand language exactly what’s going on, what the test results mean and what can or cannot be done.

They're honest, caring and highly credentialed in the fields of chiropractic, neurology and musculo-skeletal conditions and will answer any of your questions.

Your Regular Visit

They're honest, caring and highly credentialed in the fields of chiropractic, neurology and musculo-skeletal conditions and will answer any of your questions.

A regular visit is shorter, but just as important. Usually taking between 5 -15 minutes, depending on what needs to be done.

During this visit, we will discuss your progress and the changes you may have noticed. We may re-do some of the relevant tests associated with your condition to monitor your improvement.

Your care is tailored especially for you.

No two patients are the same and every treatment is different, depending on your age, environmental rigours and stresses, overall quality of health, and of course the condition that you present with.

Chiropractic treatment is safe, gentle and effective.​
