What to Expect On Your First Chiro Appointment?
Clients who have never been to a chiropractor before may be unsure about what to expect during a consultation. You may have heard stories from family and friends about what chiropractic is, but may be uncertain about a number of things. Rest assured, our Chiropractors are University trained professionals that will place your health as their priority at all times.
This page is dedicated to help patients understand what to expect on their first appointment at Perth Wellness Centre.
Patient forms are done as a means of getting your concerns in writing, be sure to arrive a little earlier to fill these up. See example of patient from here.
Your posture will be analyzed on your first visit using a special application. This helps highlight any postural components that may be contributing to your current state, it may also help us find movement faults and prevent future injuries.
As Practitioners in Perth Wellness Centre take a team approach in helping patients, expect an initial screen with the Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist. As patients occasionally may benefit greatly from a cross treatment approach, an initial screen by the Physio or OT is done to help develop an all rounded treatment plan.
Note: Initial screens are free of charge. Your initial screen may be done at a later appointment if not possible on your first visit.
Your Chiropractor will listen to your story and allow you to explain your concerns. During this time, relevant questions will be asked concerning your health and well being. It is best to utilize this opportunity to list your primary concerns, goals and specific needs.
Your Chiropractor will also perform an assessment and testing on you to fully understand your requirements. Some tests may be gentle and others slightly provocative as a means of identifying symptomatic regions or painful body parts.
Depending on your condition, a working diagnosis detailing your condition may be made on the spot.
Depending on your needs, your chiropractor will select the best treatment modalities to suit you. Relevant advise will also be provided for you to improve on your health.
There will be times when the Chiropractor may request that you receive a medical imaging, medical opinion or even another form of Allied Health input to compliment Chiropractic care. This is done on a case by case basis as everyone is unique in their health requirements.
When it comes to your care, our practitioners are patient centered in their approach. We place your health above all else. Find out more here.
