Your first visit

If you are a first-time client at Inverurie Chiropractic Clinic, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can determine whether or not chiropractic care will be suitable for you and provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances. If we feel you need further investigations you may not receive treatment during the consultation but we try our best to provide this is possible.



Pre-visit
Before your consultation we send you an e-mail asking you to fill in a questionnare  called Care Response where you have a chance to add comments or background information. We also ask you to score your pain before and after treatment so we can measure the outcome of the treatment. When you arrive at the clinic we'll have some brief paperwork for you to fill in on your first visit. This paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.

 

 

Consultation


During your first consultation with the chiropractor, you'll discuss any health-

 

related issues and concerns. You'll also learn about potential treatment options

 

including self-help, and alternatives to chiropractic.

 

 

History and examination

 

In order to pinpoint your problem, the chiropractor will ask you a number of

 

questions related to your condition, your past medical history and your general

 

health. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which parts of

 

the body are affected and to what extent. If we do not think your problem is

 

suitable for chiropractic care we will refer you to the appropriate health care

 

service.

 

 

X-rays


Your specific condition may require us to have X-rays or scans taken either to

 

rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in assessing the most effective

 

treatment plan for you. We normally will do this via your GP.  Alternatively, we

 

can refer you privately to via RGU in Aberdeen.  We can also refer for MRIs in 

 

Aberdeen but you will have to pay for those separately.

 

 

Same-day treatment


Once the examination is complete, after discussing what your preferences are 

 

 what we would recommend and alternative options, patients will generally

 

have their first treatment during the consultation. This may include spinal

 

adjustments, muscle work, exercises and advice about posture.

 

 

Home instructions


Before leaving, you'll be given instructions on certain activities or procedures

 

to be carried out at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance

 

of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises. We may advice you

 

to see your GP for pain relief as well. 

 

 

Self-care

 

Research shows that most people benefit from regular exercise for low back

 

pain and we will discuss what options you have. It is up to you to decide what

 

is best for you. 

 

 

Follow up appointments

 

We follow the NICE Guidelines and Royal College of Chiropractors' guidelines

 

on number and frequency of treatments and reassess at every visit. On each

 

visit we discuss your goals and how you are doing. 

 

 

CARE RESPONSE - Follow-up emails

 

After 2 weeks, a month and three months we will email you again and ask you

 

to score your pain level. We will also send you a patient satisfaction

 

questionnaire, because we care about your experience and are always keen to

 

look at how we can improve. This information is anonymous and will only be

 

for our internal use.
