Initial Assessment

What to expect on your initial assessment

Initial assessments typically last 60 minutes and as part of this assessment, your chiropractor will:

They may also arrange for X-rays or MRI to be taken.

If your chiropractor discovers or suspects that you have a serious health condition, they will advise you to see your GP or go to hospital.

Once this assessment has been carried out, you will be given a care plan at the Report of Findings appointment. This describes the chiropractor’s diagnosis and outlines the suggested treatment. This will include the number of treatments, costs, time period and expected outcomes.

We do not normally do treatment on the same day as the assessment however gentle treatment may be offered for patients in severe pain. This is to not overload your body and give you time to make an informed decision.
