For many people, this may be your first visit to a chiropractor. So please allow us to give you an outline of what to expect.
From the moment you walk into the office, you will be greeted with a smile by one our team members. You will be given a brief, but highly informative tour that explains how our office is unique and highlights the many and varied cases we’ve corrected over the last 40 years.
We ask that you dress comfortably for the consultation; this will make sure we can be as thorough as we can in our examination. If you have any current or prior exams such as CTs, MRIs, X-rays or other relevant test results, please bring them along to assist the Doctor in learning as much as they can regarding your condition.
Chiropractic Consultation and Examinations
Following the paperwork, you will meet with either Wendy or Greg to talk about the relevant details of your health. As a way of learning what may have contributed to your problem, we may ask questions regarding previous injuries, falls, postural habits, sports, medication usage and results, repetitive stressors, etc.
Our goal is to help you find out the cause of the problem, if its something we feel we can help with we’ll continue with our examination, if its outside our expertise, we will let you know and find someone who can. Following our consultation, we will then begin our four (4) exams.
The specificity and thoroughness of these exams are designed to help determine the root cause and should take a total of 45 minutes.
- Physical Examination
- Structural Chiropractic Examination
- Thermal reading Nervoscope analysis
- Digital X-Ray Analysis (if necessary).
X-rays are sometimes needed to assess and help diagnose certain conditions. If they are necessary, we have digital X-ray facilities within our office to ensure that we get the best possible films at the time of consultation.
After your Exam
Following your first visit, either Wendy or Greg will review your consultation and four examinations to review the source of your health problems. We understand that no two conditions are the same and require different correction plans if we can help. The doctor will then review your customised correction plan to help you reach your goals. Our staff will then give you a folder that includes your results, as well as some information about our office.
Being local, both Wendy and Greg have built strong relationships with the best health care providers throughout the Inverell and Glen Innes communities. If they find during the examination that this is not a chiropractic case, know you will be referred to the best health practitioner to help resolve your specific condition.
