What to Expect

Our team is ready to warmly welcome you to our modern, bright practice that has a welcoming feel to it. You’ll find our clinic environment to be patient-centred. We want you to relax and feel right at home in our comfortable lounge area. Feel free to help yourself to complimentary coffee or tea and a biscuit. Every now and then Dr. Anna bakes up some gluten free cake and slices for the patients to try!

The Initial Consultation

the-initial-consultation

We’ll do a thorough examination on your first visit.

We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to fill out the necessary forms. You can speed up this process by filling in the forms online prior to your arrival, which you can find by clicking here. During this visit, we’ll go through your history and discuss what’s brought you here. Then we’ll do a thorough examination, which involves:

  • Orthopaedic testing
  • Neurological testing
  • Strength tests
  • Chiropractic specific tests
  • X-rays, if indicated

To prepare for your visit, please wear loose clothing and try to avoid wearing a skirt. We can, however, have you change into clothing we provide if need be. It’s useful if you can bring in any x-rays or reports like ultrasounds, CTs or MRIs that may help with the consultation.

Report Visit

In order for you to have informed consent around your care the next visit is in two parts. The first half is your personalised Report of Findings appointment in which we explain what we found in the results of your examination, tests and x-rays (if taken). You will also receive your first chiropractic adjustment.

The second half of your report is where we take the time to explain where we fit in the health care system and what you can expect from Stott Chiropractic. Your chiropractor will provide you with your personalised chiropractic care program.

Any questions and concerns that you have will be answered. If all is in order we will begin care at this point, making your appointment for your regular visits with Judy or Karen at the front desk.

Follow-up Visits

Once we’ve established how best to help you, your visits will only take about five minutes. As your pain and symptoms subside you’ll receive home exercises and stretches to further help you’re healing. Our goal is to move you from being in pain to having a healthier lifestyle and a brighter future.

We are very keen to know how your progress is tracking, so at certain intervals, we perform a Progressive Exam. We will inform you when these exams are due so you can book your next appointment accordingly.

Attend Our Health Talks!

In addition to speaking with you about your health on every visit, we offer talks in the clinic to teach you more. The topics vary and are on a range of subjects, such as nutrition basics, neurology or how adjustments affect your body.

A Family-friendly Clinic

The whole family benefits from chiropractic care

We offer family plans so your whole family can benefit from chiropractic care.

We’re a family-orientated clinic. The kiddie’s corner has colouring competitions that your kids can win a prize in, and the staff are happy to mind your children while you get adjusted.

We also offer family plans with fees structured around your family. When you come in with 3-4 family members, the price lowers, enabling your family to get great, affordable care.

It’s important that children see a chiropractor. Many childhood health complaints are brushed off as growing pains but may be traced to the spine. Regular chiropractic check-ups may identify these problems and help your children avoid some of the health complaints seen later in adults.

Your family deserves to live a healthy, happy life. Schedule your appointment today!
