On your initial visit to Active Care Chiropractic you will be asked by Russell to complete a form about you and your health.
Dr Phil Baines will then invite you into one of the consulting rooms and he will talk through your problem or pain, how it is affecting you and how you think it may have happened. So that we can recommend the best “active care” for you we will also talk to you about your general health and lifestyle to assess your suitability for treatment.
You will then undergo a thorough physical examination taking into account all the different aspects of your health. This examination will aid the diagnosis and the recommended remedial action. At Active Care Chiropractic we aim to help you feel as good as you possibly can – and will develop a plan to achieve this. If we feel that you are unlikely to benefit from Chiropractic (or one of our other specialist techniques) we will, where we can, suggest an alternative health professional to visit.
If Dr Baines 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 the situation. 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.
