What to expect
At the initial consultation you will be asked to complete a form with your personal and medical information, as well as go through an informed consent. During the consult you will be asked questions about your current complaint and symptoms, your medical history and any medications. Then an examination including any required orthopaedic, neurological, postural and joint movements will be conducted. Treatment may include a variety of different techniques, which will be discussed with you. Rehabilitation exercises may also be recommended for you and referral may be suggested dependant on your condition.
It is advisable to wear loose comfortable clothing. Depending on the area being treated you may be asked to undress to your underwear. A gown can be provided if you wish.
The initial treatment lasts 45min to 1hour and any follow-up consultations last approximately 30min. Bring along any imaging you may have to your appointment.
