What happens at the first visit to a chiropractor?
Firstly, the chiropractor will ask you questions related to your complaint, as well as establish a general background of your medical history.
Secondly, a very thorough examination is carried out, which includes the whole of the spine and relevant joints, as well as muscles, ligaments and the nervous system. This is so we have as much information as possible to make the correct diagnosis.
The chiropractor will explain the diagnosis to you in detail and suggest a treatment plan. If we can’t help with your problem, you will usually be referred to your GP, or for further tests, such as X-Rays, MRI scan or laboratory tests.
Treatment often starts on the first visit, depending on your symptoms and presentation.
How long does it take to get better?
Some problems resolve very quickly with treatment. Sometimes it may take some time for your problem to improve, as it depends on the injury type, how long you have had the symptoms, your age, and the type of work and lifestyle you have.
Do I need to be referred by my GP or a specialist?
As chiropractic is a private health care option, you do not need a referral. However, if you are using private health care insurance to pay for the treatment, you may need a letter from your GP or specialist to be covered. Check with your insurance company for further details. Back in Motion Chiropractic Clinic is recognised by all main insurance companies.
