What to Expect During Your First Visit to Peterborough Chiropractic Clinic

If you’re considering chiropractic care at Peterborough Chiropractic Clinic, you may be wondering what to expect during your first visit. In this blog, we’ll outline the steps involved in your initial appointment, from consultation to examination and personalised treatment plans, to help you feel confident and prepared for your first visit.

  1. Patient Intake and Consultation:

Upon arriving at Peterborough Chiropractic Clinic, you’ll be asked to fill out a patient intake form, which includes your medical history and information about your current health concerns. This information helps our chiropractors better understand your specific needs and develop a tailored treatment plan.

During the consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your health concerns, goals, and expectations with the chiropractor. This is the time to ask any questions you may have and share any relevant information about your condition.

  1. Physical Examination:

After the consultation, your chiropractor will perform a comprehensive physical examination to assess your spinal health and overall musculoskeletal function. This may include evaluating your posture, range of motion, muscle strength, and reflexes. The chiropractor may also use specialised techniques to identify any spinal misalignments or other issues that could be contributing to your symptoms.

  1. Diagnostic Imaging (if necessary):

In some cases, your chiropractor may recommend diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or an MRI, to obtain a more detailed view of your spine and surrounding structures. This can help identify any underlying issues that may not be apparent during the physical examination and inform the development of your treatment plan. Peterborough Chiropractic Clinic has its own in-house x-ray department.

  1. Report of Findings and Treatment Plan:

After the examination and any necessary diagnostic imaging, your chiropractor will review their findings with you and discuss your personalised treatment plan. This may include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapies, exercise recommendations, and other complementary therapies tailored to your specific needs and goals.

  1. First Chiropractic Treatment:

Depending on the findings of your examination and the severity of your symptoms, you may receive your first chiropractic treatment during your initial visit, however it is more common for you to return for your results before agreeing to a treatment programme. Your chiropractor will explain the procedure and ensure you are comfortable before proceeding. Keep in mind that the specific techniques used may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan.
