Low Back Pain? Neck Pain? – What to expect from your first visit.

Posted March 24th 2016

We see patients routinely for low back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder and knee pain.

When you meet Katherine for the first time, she will start with a discussion about you, your health and your reasons for asking for chiropractic care.

You will be asked for a great deal of information, not just about the pain or complaint that may have brought you to the clinic, but also about your past health history.  Some of the questions may appear irrelevant, but they are extremely important. To ensure that chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition, she will need to establish your overall health picture. If chiropractic appears not to be suitable for you, you will be referred to your GP or relevant specialist.

This is why your initial visit is 60 minutes in duration. It is vital that we take a detailed case history, a thorough examination, provide a comprehensive report of findings to ensure you understand your complaint, and then provide treatment (if appropriate).

Your details are confidential. No one else will be allowed to see your notes without your permission.

This video may give you some idea of what to expect. If you have any questions prior to your visit Katherine, please call the clinic to discuss them.
