What to expect at Bateman Chiropractic
Our approach is friendly and caring. So the first thing you can expect is to feel comfortable, safe and listened to when you call to make a booking and when you arrive for your first appointment.
Please allow thirty minutes for your first session. Ideally wear loose or flexible clothing that you will be comfortable in. We ask that you arrive ten minutes prior to your session time so you can fill in necessary paperwork.
At your initial consultation your chiropractor will do a full examination. This includes gathering your medical history, discussing your presenting complaint, and a chiropractic examination.
We may recommend and refer you to have x-rays taken if we feel that is integral to your treatment. X-rays are done off site and covered by Medicare so you will not incur any extra cost from these.
We provide you with a report based on the findings from your examination. We will also present a recommended care plan which we will discuss with you. This may include us communicating with other health practitioners and we will discuss consent and referral processes.
In this session you will receive your first chiropractic treatment, based on our assessment and your care plan. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions and raise any concerns.
This session will also take around thirty minutes.
