What to expect during your consultation
Before your first appointment we will ask you to fill out a short intake form. This allows us to get a better understanding of your general health. During the initial consultation we spend time getting to know you and the reason why you came to see us. It might feel like there are a lot of questions, but we take a thorough history for a reason; in order to provide you with the best chiropractic care, we first need to figure out where your pain is coming from.
After the history we start the physical examination. We may ask you to change into your underwear, if you feel more comfortable please bring a pair of (sport) shorts to change into. Just as with the history, we like to be thorough, which means we do an in-depth examination including neurological and orthopaedic tests.
Report of findings
We are convinced that understanding why you are in pain is the first step of getting better. This is why we spend time explaining to you where we think your pain is coming from and what we are going to do about it. If, after the history and examination, we believe that chiropractic care is not the best way forward for you, we will tell you and recommend the best course of action, this might be a referral to your GP or other health care practitioner. We will, of course, answer any questions you may have.
After explaining the treatment plan, we will make a start with treatment. During the treatment we will explain what techniques we use and why we use them. There is more information here about three stages of treatment.
