Consultations are relaxed and friendly. The following section is designed to give new patients an outline of the process that we go through during a typical session. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
If you are visiting us for the first time you will need to complete and sign our patient info and consent form. We would recommend arriving 5-10 minutes earlier to complete this form,
This is where you would explain to your practitioner the reason for your visit. Based on the information you provide we may ask further questions to gain a better understanding of your presenting complaint. You can discuss previous intervention and radiology scans (X-ray, Ultrasound, MRI) with your practitioner.
Following case history taking, your practitioner will perform a physical examination. This can include checking postural alignments, examining some of the muscles and joints in your body as well as asking you to do some simple movements such as turning your neck to either side. In addition to this, if necessary, your practitioner may perform some extra tests including measuring your blood pressure, some orthopedic tests and/or checking your reflexes. We advise our patients to wear suitable underwear for this process; however, you are able to be treated fully clothed.
Treatment and Advice
Your practitioner will discuss the probable cause of your symptoms, the expected time-frames involved and the treatment options with you. Your therapist will apply careful hands-on treatment.
