PREPARING FOR THE FIRST VISIT

At Potter Chiropractic we want to make your first visit as comfortable as possible.

 

Below is what to expect on your first visit with your Chiropractor –

 

– Upon arriving 10 minutes early you’ll be greeted by our lovely staff (Dee or Nikki).

– You will be given a detailed questionnaire to complete so you can describe the details of your condition.

– Next you will meet with your Chiropractic doctor who will listen closely to your concerns.

– Your doctor will thoroughly reveiw your health history and determine if yours is a Chiropractic case.

– A physical examination involving orthopaedic and neurological tests will be performed to determine the underlying cause/s of your problem.

– If necessary your Chiropractor will order X-rays to help formulate the correct diagnosis (Free of charge with Medicare rebate).

– Before proper care can begin your doctor will correlate all the findings and diagnose your condition from the history and physical examination.

– If yours is a case of severe pain the doctor may suggest the application of ice, heat or other anti-imflammatory products to help with discomfort.

– The initial visit with your doctor is 40 minutes.

– Prior to leaving you will be given a welcome pack and the recommended time for your next appointment.
