Taking your first few trips to the chiropractor can be intimidating. Therefore, it helps to have an idea what to expect when you arrive.

Day 1 – The Chiropractor will take a full case history to establish your general health and understand your symptoms, they will also carry out a physical examination which involves orthopaedic testing, neurological screening and assessing your posture.

Day 2 – The Chiropractor will explain to you their Report of Findings based on your Initial consultation, this will include any postural issues, rationale of care, any potential benefit or risk of your care, before outlining a treatment schedule, they will educate you about the chiropractic treatment, if there are no contraindications present, then you will receive your first Chiropractic adjustment.

The aim of a chiropractic treatment is to re-educate your body to stay in its optimal alignment, therefore, a suitable treatment plan may be advised on a case-by-case basis.


Chiropractic Care consists of 3 stages: 1) Pain relief and correction, (2) Stabilisation and strengthening and (3) Wellness care. Your Chiropractor will explain to you the importance of each of these stages and give you a choice whether you wish to continue with Chiropractic care at each stage.


If you are ready to take care of you spine then please book your first visit and let us guide and assist you through the process of healing.
