What to Expect
Welcome to our New Patient Centre!
When you come to Connective Chiropractic as a New Patient, your journey to better health has just begun!
We ask that you complete some forms – some stuff for admin purposes, some info about you and your health challenges and the obligatory legal stuff we are required to get! You can fill in the forms in the comfort of your own home by clicking on the link below, or you can come to your appointment 10 minutes early and complete them in the office.
Dr Bill will begin by finding a bit more about your health and trauma history, and then he will perform a series of postural, orthopaedic and neurological examinations, as well as some chiropractic checks. If he feels he needs more information, he may require specific postural x-rays. Let us know of any medical imaging you have had in recent times that have been performed at a radiological service like Benson, Jones & Partners or Lumus and we may be able to access the reports and films through our imaging access portals. (Unfortunately, we are unable to access any imaging done through the hospital systems.)
Dr Bill will then explain what he believes is the best course of treatment, whether or not chiropractic is likely to help your situation, what other modalities (e.g. Foot Levelers) may need to be considered and if appropriate, will offer to give you an adjustment. Your first adjustment is included in your new patient visit cost – it is not an add-on!
From there, one of our team will book your next appointment and accept payment. Frequency of care will be entirely individualised – depending on severity of pain, response to your adjustment, as well as Dr Bill’s experience and knowledge of what it will take to help your situation.
Welcome to our chiropractic family!
