First Visit


First Visit

Your first visit to our Reading Chiropractor

Scared about your first visit? Don’t be, we start with a medical history to ensure things are right for you

This session will normally last 45 minutes. During this time your chiropractor will review with you your medical history to assess your general health, previous conditions and discuss your present condition in a bit more depth. Once this is completed an examination is conducted – this allows your chiropractor to assess the mobility of your spine and to use any relevant orthopedic tests which may be relevant to your condition. These help us establish what the cause of the problem may be.

Once this is all completed your chiropractor will discuss their findings and a treatment plan can be put into action, all being well a treatment will then take place.

The anticipated number of sessions (our current average is three) will be discussed with you prior to treatment. Once you’re up and running, you can choose to schedule regular check-ups a few times a year to promote health.

Answers to some common questions


Is it safe?

Chiropractic treatment is very safe. Prior to any treatment we will take a full medical history from you to ensure that there are no reasons why you should not receive treatment.


Do I have to undress?

For your first visit you will be required to undress down to your underwear due to the neurological tests. However if you are uncomfortable with this then you may wear shorts and a strappy top/vest.


Is my Chiropractor qualified?

Yes all chiropractors are governed by the General Chiropractic Council and each must have a registration number to be able to practice.
