The first visit starts by some brief paperwork. It provides me with general information about you and your condition. Then, we will have a discussion and talk through your problem. After that, I will do a full examination with orthopaedic and neurological testing. I will exam your spine, nervous system, joints and muscles to reach a diagnosis for your complaint. If an X-ray is required to confirm a diagnosis or to rule out red flags, i.e. conditions which require further investigation or referral, you can’t be adjusted during this first visit. If not, I will propose you a personalised treatment, step by step and we will begin adjusting on this visit.
Before leaving, you'll be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be carried out at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
