What to expect
Your first visit
On your first visit, the focus will be on how we can help you. We will sit down and listen to your health concern, discuss your current health situation and assess whether you are a good candidate for Chiropractic care.
Your Chiropractor will proceed with a thorough clinical examination and detailed assessment. We will look at how you bend and move, palpate your spine and look at your posture. If you present with acute pain, some form of pain relief or Chiropractic first aid will be applied to alleviate your symptoms. You will also be given home care advice.
X-rays and further tests
In some cases x-rays may be requested if clinically indicated. Your Chiropractor will always discuss this with you before proceeding. All spinal X-rays are bulk-billed to Medicare. This information helps us identify the causes of your problem and helps us determine what the next appropriate action will be. Children under 18 years of age are not generally X-rayed unless there is indication of significant trauma or postural deformity. Your Chiropractor will always discuss these options with you before proceeding.
You should allow 40 minutes for your first visit.
