New to Chiropractic? Your First Visit…
On your first visit to Life Chiropractic for your consultation, we want you to feel confident that you have arrived in the best place to find the solutions to your health problems.
Your new patient consultation will take approximately 45 minutes and will involve an in-depth patient history, chiropractic exam including orthopaedic tests and x-rays if medically required.
Following your consultation we will book your report of findings appointment which lasts 30 minutes and includes an informative video; your chiropractor will explain your test results and x-ray findings and if appropriate devise a care plan tailored to your needs.
What’s Included in your Consultation:
Comprehensive review of your health history Open Close
You will be asked to complete a health history questionnaire which gives us a good overview of your general health history, this is important in understanding how your past may have contributed to your current chiropractic health.
Chiropractic Examination (Orthopaedic, Neurologic and Palpation) Open Close
Your dedicated chiropractor will carry out an initial chiropractic examination, covering things like flexibility, range of movement, posture and many other general areas.
Postural & Spinal Assessment Open Close
As part of your examination we will cover your posture, a key part of assessing your general chiropractic health.
X-ray imaging Open Close
If your chiropractor feels it necessary they will carry out a digital spine x-ray. This will help in many cases to quickly ascertain the root cause of any pain and discomfort you are experiencing. (Any number of x-rays needed are included)
Report of findings Open Close
Following your initial chiropractic consultation we will book a date for you to return so we can run through a full report of findings with you. This will explain what was found in the consultation and x-rays, our recommendations and your on-going treatment plan.
Your Report of Findings Follow-up Visit
After your initial chiropractic consultation and examination, we will book your second appointment. This will allow us time to evaluate the results from our initial meeting which we can then share with you.
We will spend time fully explaining what we believe to be the cause of your pain and what course of action we recommend taking. At this point, we will also be able to answer any specific queries you have, such as how long it will take for you to heal and the costs involved.
“This will be the start of your treatment plan; a shared journey between Life Chiropractic and yourself, where we will provide you with the best wellness care to achieve a shared goal of a long, healthy, pain-free life.”
