If you're 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 provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A bit of paperwork
We first send you an e-mail asking you to fill in a small questionnare and 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.
During your first consultation with the chiropractor, you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You'll also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint your problem, the chiropractor will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to have X-rays taken either to rule out more serious conditions or to assist us in assessing the most effective treatment plan for you. We will do this via your GP or we can refer you privately to Albyn Hospital in Aberdeen.
Once the examination is complete, patients will generally have their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
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.
Scheduling the next appointment
Regular treatment is essential to the process. We arrange our treatments around your schedule. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1 to 2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
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.
