Consultation & Examination; 35-45 minutes

The purpose of the initial consultation is a meet and greet for you and/or family with the Chiropractor. The aim is to discuss your health concerns, health history, goals you wish to achieve from care and to access any underlying concerns so the Chiropractor can determine whether Chiropractic care is able to help. (If you have any relevant information relating to your condition please bring it along to your consultation eg; ACC forms, x-rays, x-ray reports) From there if we think we are able to help (and you agree) a thorough examination will be carried out to help identify the cause of your problem/s.

 

What is involved in the examination?

After your consultation the Chiropractor will complete a spinal examination. This testing concentrates on the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles and bones) and varies depending upon what is discovered during the initial consultation and evaluation of your health history/consultation. Tests can include; reflexes, flexibility, neurological assessment, orthopedic testing, postural and physical tests. Based on these findings the Chiropractor can assess whether any additional investigations are needed such as x-rays. X-rays; diagnostic imaging can help the Chiropractor really see what is going on and help locate any bone abnormalities, fractures, abnormal curvatures, and reveal any phase of spinal degeneration/ osteoarthritis.

Recommendation of care

Following the discussion of where and what is going on with your spine comes the recommendation of care. This recommendation is based purely on the tests and examinations conducted on your first visit. It takes into consideration the severity of your concerns, age and condition of your spine, and time frame of how long the problem has been present for. This recommendation is unique to every individual and can only be accurately determined by thorough investigation. The most important part following this recommendation is establishing mutually achievable goals from care that both you and your chiropractor can work towards. Should you decide to begin care based on the recommendation and goals you set from care, the next step is the Spinal Adjustment.
