New Patient Information

We Warmly Welcome You

At Marrickville Chiropractic Care, we are proud to take the time to get to know, understand, and listen to you. This is especially true during your first visit with us, as we are dedicated to understanding and assessing your health concerns.

Your First Consultation

Your new patient consultation is the first step in creating a tailored treatment plan. We take the time to get you to know and understand each patient on an individual level. 

This first consultation helps our team understand what is happening with your body. We will be able to provide you with professional advice, which may help you make a more informed decision about your health!

  • Initial consultation time will range from 45 minutes to an hour
  • A complete medical history is taken to understand the presenting complaint and health goals of the patient
  • This is followed by a comprehensive orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic examination, and a review of any available medical imaging
  • If further testing is needed and clinically relevant, the chiropractor may refer for X-rays to aid in the correct diagnosis of the injury or condition

Once our team has determined you are a candidate for chiropractic care, and it is safe to do so, we will give an adjustment on the initial consultation. 

Your Report of Findings Visit

This is an extended consultation following your first adjustment. The purpose of this consultation is to assess how your body has initially responded after the first adjustment and discuss the significant findings from your history and examination. 

If further imaging is required, it will be reviewed during this consultation.

A diagnosis and detailed explanation of the cause of your condition will also be provided and how chiropractic care may aid your recovery. 

Standard Consultations at Marrickville Chiropractic Care

These consultations are your regular visits, which may take up to 30 minutes. We proudly offer longer consultations, meaning you have more time with the Chiropractor.

This will depend on your medical history, your condition and the treatment plan we have customised for you. 

Our chiropractor will continually monitor your progress and regularly reassess your condition and level of improvement.
