Our initial consultation begins with a history of your condition and past medical history. The history plays a crucial part in helping to make a diagnosis of the condition and ultimately deciding how you would best be treated.


We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early for your first chiropractic appointment. This will allow you to fill in a personal health questionnaire and to register with the clinic.

Your first visit may last about 45 minutes and your chiropractor will ask questions about your main complaint and about your general health. After listening to your concerns your chiropractor will perform a thorough examination.


The examination usually includes postural evaluation, orthopaedic testing, a neurological examination, muscle testing and palpation of the joints and muscles associated with your injury. After the examination, your chiropractor will spend time carefully explaining your condition to you in a report of findings.
