What to expect at your first visit.
Once you have made the decision to improve your health please call the practice on
I will book you an appointment at a time and date to suit you. I will send you an email confirmation of your appointment time, and also a short ‘What to expect at your first visit’ which gives you lots of important information about your first visit. We will also ask you to look at our policy on how we store your records and use your personal data.
When you arrive at the practice I will take you through into the consulting room, where I will listen to your concerns and ask about your symptoms, your general health, work, hobbies and previous medical problems These questions help me to work out what is causing your symptoms, and decide upon a treatment plan.
I will then examine you, assessing how you move your body and looking for areas which may need treatment. You may be asked to undress to your underwear, so wear comfortable underwear or bring pair of shorts with you. I will talk through my findings with you, what I feel is causing the problems and then discuss the best treatment options. You will always be asked if you are happy to have treatment before any treatment is given.
Once treatment is completed I will give you advice on how you might feel after the treatment, and things to do afterwards including stretches or exercises, possible changes to your sitting posture at work etc. A second appointment is usually made so I can assess how you are progressing.
If you have any concerns after your treatment you are welcome to call the practice and I will take the time to talk to you and advise you accordingly.
If you would like to know more, or if you still have questions please fill out our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
