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
Your first appointment with our chiropractic clinic is in two parts, the first is a video or phone call to take a detailed medical history, get to know each other and talk a bit about Covid-19 and our precautions. This will normally last 20 – 30 minutes and at the end of this session we will arrange a hands-on treatment time.
The second part, and the bit you have been waiting for is to attend our clinic for an examination – this allows your chiropractor to assess the mobility of your spine and to use any relevant orthopaedic 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.
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.
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.
Yes all chiropractors are governed by the General Chiropractic Council and each must have a registration number to be able to practice.
Our Twyford clinic is now open, we do however ask that you book prior to arrival as we must keep the waiting room as clear as possible at this time of social distancing.
We look forward to seeing you all again.
