What to Expect on Your First Appointment

Firstly, we listen.

At South Street Chiropractic, you are in the hands of caring, experienced healthcare professionals. Everyone here is fully committed to the same goal - your good health. But what should you expect from your first appointment?

On arrival you will be greeted by one of our friendly receptionists; Jeanette, Jane or possibly Sue, Julien's Chiropractic Assistant. They will ensure that your registration goes smoothly and will answer any questions you may have. We would ask that you arrive a few minutes before your appointment to ensure that our diary runs on time. Everybody has busy diaries and this small thing keeps us on track.

 Your first appointment with one of our Chiropractors - Julien or Steve - will take approximately one hour. The first half of the consultation will be an indepth evaluation of your condition. We will discuss the problem with you - the type, the character, the onset and history. The second part of the consultation will be a physical examination, using orthopaedic and neurological assessments. Patients are sometimes concerned that they will need to remove their clothes, but we find that this is rarely necessary.

 Once our initial assessment is complete, we'll identify the problem and explain how Chiropractic care could help you. Your tailored treatment plan will involve a series of swift, light but powerful chiropractic adjustments (manual or Activator), exercises, possibly acupuncture or even sessions with the ground breaking K-Laser. At South Street Chiropractic we employ a range of approaches to aid recovery. Depending on your situation, we aim to design the right programme of individual care for you.

The vast majority of our patients are with us on the personal recommendation of friends, family and work colleagues.
