The First Appointment
The purpose of the first appointment is to establish a diagnosis. We will begin with a lot of questions and then follow with a thorough examination. This information is necessary to get a good picture of why the problem has occurred, how we can fix it, and how we prevent a recurrence.
If the pain is very recent then we will ascertain what treatment we can safely perform to reduce the pain as soon as possible. If it is an older problem, we will spend our time investigating not only the source of the pain but the cause of the problem.
The Second Appointment
At the second appointment you will get the results of the examination of the first day. Your chiropractor will describe in detail what the problem is and what we can do about it. Sometimes it is necessary to discuss referral to a medical doctor or surgeon but in the majority of cases patients are treated at our clinic.
At this point a Treatment Plan will be proposed and the necessary treatment will be described. When everything has been properly explained then the treatment can begin.
Appointments for treatment take less time than the two initial visits. It is best to plan ahead and book the necessary appointment to ensure that you get the times that suit your agenda. Appointments for treatment can be made with either of our Chiropractors.
At certain stages in your treatment plan we will need to take some time to evaluate your condition. This re-assessment is necessary to consider your progress and will help us plan for the next stage in your treatment if further treatment is required.
