What happens on your first visit?

Normally your first visit can last anything between 30 minutes and an hour. During this time the Chiropractor:

  • Will take a full case history (this is now done by phone ahead of your first visit)
  • Give you a thorough physical examination (this will include neurological and orthopaedic tests, if necessary)
  • You may be referred for X-rays or scans if they are needed. 

A chiropractor’s first concern is to find. out what is wrong. They will also check for signs of any serious conditions for which you would need to go to your GP or to hospital.

What do I need to know before my treatment starts?

Treatment is very much a partnership between you and your chiropractor. Before your treatment starts, your chiropractor will explain to you clearly: what they found in the examination, the treatment plan they propose, the benefits and risks associated with your condition and proposed treatment, as well as answering any questions you may have.
