Your First Visit
Visiting a Chiropractic Clinic for the first time can be a little stressful. But you don’t need to worry as our helpful and caring team at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic are all here to help you. We’ve outlined here what you can expect when you visit our clinic for the first time.
One of our friendly Chiropractic Assistants, Maggie or Emma will welcome you on arrival at our clinic. You will immediately be made to feel at home in a calm and relaxing environment. So that we can understand your presenting complaint/s we will ask you to fill out our comprehensive New Patient Form.
Once you have completed your form, we will check your posture and balance. You will then be taken through to an examination room where you will be met by your chiropractor. Here, your chiropractor will take a very thorough history about your condition, your past medical history and your lifestyle. You can use this time to tell us what your health goals are.
It is very important at this stage to tell us as much information as possible. Things that you think may not be important actually might be and they might be affecting your condition. We like to take the time to listen to you!
The final part of your first visit will be a detailed examination. Your chiropractor will leave the room after the consultation so that you can get changed and they will return to carry out your examination. The examination will include a full chiropractic, orthopaedic and neurological examination.
When your examination is complete, your chiropractor will then decide whether any other further investigations such as x-rays are necessary. This will help rule out any “red-flags” or help with a more accurate diagnosis.
Your first appointment should take approximately 45 minutes. Depending on what is wrong and the results of the examination, you may be given treatment at this first appointment and a brief indication what is going on.
Your chiropractor may then ask you to make a second appointment so that they can go through the results with you in more detail.
