What to Expect

Before Your Appointment

You can book your appointment online, by phone or by e-mail.  When you book your appointment you will receive a confirmation e-mail with all the information you should need.  With this there will be a questionnaire covering your general health and medical history, please could you complete this and e-mail it back it to us before your appointment.

1st Visit 

At your first visit your chiropractor will carry out a full consultation and examination to determine how best to help you.  This will include details of what you are looking to address with chiropractic care as well as anything necessary from the health and medical questionnaire you have already returned.  Your chiropractor will then carry out any necessary orthopaedic and neurological tests necessary to establish a working diagnosis.  This will generally be carried out with you fully clothed, but to enable this please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing.  Your chiropractor will explain what they are looking for with these tests and any findings.  Once your chiropractor has arrived at a working diagnosis, and if you are happy to proceed, treatment will be carried out at this time.   

For your first visit please allow up to an hour. 

Follow Up Visits 

At your follow up visits your chiropractor will discuss your progress since your last appointment and carry out more treatment as necessary, along with offering any exercise or lifestyle advice.  Again this will be carried out fully clothed so loose, comfortable clothing is helpful.  

The number of visits you will need varies greatly from person to person and condition to condition, but as a rough guide, the longer a condition has been present, the longer it takes to improve.  Your chiropractor will discuss the likely number of visits with you, and agree with you a plan of care.  Your progress will also be reviewed regularly to ensure the plan is working, or to agree any changes that may be necessary.

For your follow up visits please allow about 30 minutes.  

Maintenance Care 

At Chiroworks Cambridge we believe everyone can benefit from chiropractic care, whether you are currently in pain or not, in order to keep the body functioning at the best of its ability, nip any potential problems in the bud, and to give you the peace of mind of having a regular check.  Once your condition has improved, of if you just like the sound of this, we offer regular maintenance visits which would generally be every one to three months, depending on the individual.  You are of course free to cease chiropractic care at any time.  

If you’re not sure whether Chiropractic is for you, please get in touch by phone or e-mail. We can discuss any issues you would like to address, answer any questions and recommend whether Chiropractic may be able to help.
