What to Expect

We provide an assessment specifically to suit your problem and your goals: whether that is to get out of pain, improve your posture, or see if you can improve your performance. Whatever your goal, it begins with a consultation to figure out a plan. See what to expect below.

The initial consultation

This will usually last 45-60 minutes and allows time for your Chiropractor to get a thorough understanding of the situation, provide a diagnosis for the problem, and give you the best options for moving forwards.


Case history

The first part of the consultation involves a good discussion where you can tell the story of what the problem is, when it occurred, what causes you the problems etc. Your Chiropractor will then ask some detailed questions about any previous episodes and injuries, and also your medical history to attain a better understanding of the bigger picture.


A thorough examination

This is a very detailed examination of the whole body and will include postural, neurological, orthopaedic, myofascial and functional components to figure out how well your body is working. We then link these findings to your problem.

Gentlemen will be asked to change down to their underwear or shorts, and ladies will be provided with a gown and can also wear shorts or gym gear.


A logical report of our findings

We tell you in plain English what the problem is, and what it isn’t. We both need to understand how and why the problem occurred, if there are any reasons why it hasn’t got better until this point, and have a good approach for fixing it.

We make sure the problem and solution makes sense to you before proceeding with anything.

A variety of treatment options will be outlined and you can ask as many questions to make sure you’re happy with any recommended treatment. A likely time frame and number of sessions needed will be provided at this stage based on your problem.

If we need to arrange specialist scans such as X-rays or an MRI we will discuss this before proceeding.


Your first treatment

If time allows, and treatment is appropriate, your Chiropractor will aim to start your treatment course as soon as possible.
