What to expect on your first visit...

On your first Chiropractic consultation, you can expect the Chiropractor to take a detailed medical history. This will aid the Chiropractor in understanding your condition, and how to proceed with a physical examination.

 

Next, you can expect the Chiropractor to perform a physical examination to localise and ascertain where the problem is or where it is coming from. At this stage, the Chiropractor may decide to send you for further diagnostic investigations to aid in diagnosis and formulating a treatment protocol for you.

 

Once your treatment protocol has been established, this may consist of dry needling, ischaemic compression, deep tissue massage, flexion distraction, spinal manipulative therapy and/or joint mobilisations. Home therapy is often prescribed to aid in optimal healing.
