Your First Visit

What to expect at Your First Visit

Before your first visit you will be emailed a form to complete online. This form gives the chiropractor as much detail as possible about you, your lifestyle and whatever has brought you to the clinic.

One of our chiropractors will have read this form in detail and will understand your situation before you arrive.


One of our chiropractors will then take your “case history”. This is an opportunity to discuss all of the different aspects of your life that might affect how you feel and the challenges you face. Again this will help you and your chiropractor to create a plan to be able to help you as much as possible.

You will then undergo a thorough physical examination taking into account all the different aspects of your health. This examination will help to work out exactly what is going on so that again with your chiropractor you can tailor a care plan to suit your needs.

At Active Care Chiropractic our aim is to help you feel as good as you possibly can – and will work with you to develop a plan to achieve this.

However, importantly, if we feel that you are unlikely to benefit from Chiropractic (or one of our other specialist techniques) we will do our best to suggest an alternative health professional to visit.

If one of our chiropractors feels you require imaging such as an X-Ray or MRI Scan then this will be discussed and can be organised for you.

Before any treatment begins it is very important that you completely understand everything. You will therefore be given a thorough and detailed “report of findings” in which everything will be explained to you as clearly as possible.

Your initial visit will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Subsequent appointments generally last 15 minutes.

If at any time during any stage of your treatment you have any questions or would like to discuss anything with your Chiropractor then always feel free to ask.
