What to Expect
Initial Consultation at Cove Chiropractic
Your first visit is called an initial consultation and usually lasts anywhere from 30 -45 minutes depending on your case history.
In this first meeting, you will need to fill out a short questionnaire and then Dr Chorley will go through a thorough case history and physical exam. Dr Chorley can treat all muscles and joints so please feel free to discuss any and all pain you may be experiencing and don’t forget to bring along any previous X-Rays or MRIs that may be useful.
The physical exam is done fully clothed, but it is ideal to wear loose fitting clothes that allow the doctor to test the range of movement in a number of joints.
Thorough and In-depth Diagnostic Testing
The initial consultation is all about listening to you, understanding the issues and symptoms you are facing, and running through a series of diagnostic tests to determine the optimum treatment for your specific situation. Professional and thorough, you are in highly trained hands and Dr Chorley will lead you through a series of neurological, orthopaedic, postural and palpation tests to understand the route cause of your issues. If further diagnostic tests such as X-Rays are needed, we can issue a referral through Dr Jones and Partners network, and in most cases, this is eligible for Medicare Bulk Billing.
Once the tests are complete, Dr Chorley will discuss his findings and talk you through a treatment plan. He will explain in detail what will be done and why so you have a full understanding of the treatment. If you are nervous or apprehensive, he will take the time to answer any questions to set your mind at ease and then begin your first treatment.
