Putting Your Needs First
We know any new experience can be daunting, so we make every effort to ensure your first visit and every visit thereafter is as comfortable for you as possible.
Our practitioners will address and treat the cause of your problem, not just your symptoms. We work to understand you, your pain and your entire problem from the very first appointment.
Your First Visit
As a first time client at Optimal Health Inspired, we need to know a bit more about you so that we can assess your condition and provide you with the best possible care.
The day before…
You will receive a courtesy phone call to confirm your appointment.
At the appointment…
We investigate your problem thoroughly by taking a full life history, which will explore past injuries, any family traits or inherited conditions and any underlying lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your symptoms.
A full physical examination is carried out. This tests your functional flexibility and strength, your co-ordination and postural balance. We will also evaluate your nervous system with some neurological testing.
If X-rays are clinically required, these are taken on-site at the time of the first appointment. Should other forms of scanning or imaging be required you will be given a referral letter.
Your chiropractor collates all the information acquired during the visit to prepare a full report.
Helping you with your first step to a happier, healthier, pain free life we would like to offer you 50% off the cost of your first consultation with your Chiropractor or Sports Therapist.
30 – 40 minutes
Your Second Visit
We present our report of findings, explaining in detail the cause of your problem, what can be done to recover and manage your symptoms, how to improve and prevent the condition from recurring.
We often find it helpful to have another family member or carer listening to the report with you.
Should you wish to start your care plan with us, you will receive your first treatment session at this visit.
Details of the report of findings:
What the underlying problem(s) is.
Your options (if another professional needs to be involved a referral letter is provided).
How your practitioner can help – what treatments will be given in the clinic. How you can help yourself – what you can do when not in clinic.
Expected timescale for recovery (dependent on your personal goals and the extent of your problem or injury).
If required – A care plan to aid your recovery (detailing how many visits and the cost).
