What to Expect on your first visit to your chiropractor in Kogarah?
A warm welcome is number one on our list; we know only too well that you are likely to be a little apprehensive at your first visit to a chiropractor; not knowing what to expect can often make any of us a little nervous. However, with Southern Spinal Care, your Chiropractor in Kogarah, the moment you enter our warm, friendly environment you will be made to feel totally at ease. Our experienced team will do whatever it takes to ensure that your visit with us is a pleasant one.
When you arrive the first thing we'll do is to prepare your file and establish a detailed history of your overall health. Next your Chiropractor will perform a thorough examination and a series of tests. Then, if necessary, your Chiropractor may also refer you for x-rays to provide more detailed information about a specific condition. Combining all this information gives us a clearer picture to be able to deliver the best possible recommendations for you.
If chiropractic care is the right choice for you, your Chiropractor in Kogarah may give you your first adjustment right away. You can be confident that, before this happens, we'll talk to you about your proposed care, the available alternatives and any potential risks associated with our recommendations. The more you understand about the chiropractic process, the better the results are likely to be. We'll also talk to you about our recommendations for your follow-up appointment and future care.
If x-rays are needed we will refer you to a our specialist radiologist and these x-rays are bulk billed under Medicare.
