What to Expect from your Chiropractic Appointment?
What will happen during my visit?
At Walter Road Chiropractic & Sports Injuries you will be surprised how at-home you will feel, we understand how hard it is to find a chiropractor that you can trust so from the very beginning we make sure you feel at home. Once you have arrive you can take a seat with a coffee or drink and fill out your new patient forms. After your form is completed one of our chiropractor’s will read it prior to taking you into the room.
Your Initial Visit
Your first visit to the clinic is extremely important, our experienced chiropractors will run through a structured assessment from history taking to physical examination and orthopedic tests. This is done to establish the diagnosis, find out if we can help and evaluate your health goals. The first step is to allow you to explain in-depth what your chief complaint is, after this we will spend time generating a comprehensive picture of your health and health problems.
Once completed the next step is to complete a physical examination with orthopedic tests, this is done to assess the performance of your joints, muscles and nervous system. We will observe your posture, check for any mechanical differences, range of motion and a full upper and lower limb neurological assessment.
If we establish that it is safe to continue without additional examinations we will then explain to you what your diagnosis is and run through your treatment plan. If our chiropractors decide to refer you for xrays they will be bulked-billed. These will be explained along with your treatment plan during your next visit.
Report of Findings
After the initial examination if we decide to get additional tests our chiropractors will spend time going through them and developing a specific goal-oriented treatment plan to make sure we get to the bottom of your problem.
Our goal is to get you out of pain, prevent the problem from coming back and to also maintain your spinal health. At Morley Chiropractic we have a unique rehabilitation room where we will show you how to do the exercises and allow you to come in and use the equipment to get the most out of the treatment.
