What to expect at your first appointment

A visit to the Chiropractor is a bit different for each individual, depending on the style of the practice, the practitioner and the complaint being treated. Here is what you can expect at an appointment with a Movement Studio practitioner. If you have any questions or concerns about your appointment, please give us a call.
For every new patient coming to Movement Studio, without exception, your Chiropractor will:
  • Ask you why you came to see them.

  • Ask you about your personal and your family medical history (where relevant)

  • Conduct a physical examination that contains both neurological (brain function) and orthopaedic (muscle and skeleton) tests

We are committed to providing the highest standard of health care to every patient. These steps are fundamental to patients receiving this standard.
After the initial consultation your Chiropractor may:
  • Refer you to another health care provider for alternate or complementary health care; such as a remedial massage therapist, psychologist or your GP.
  • Recommend you have x-rays done before any chiropractic care is undertaken.
  • Recommend that Chiropractic is appropriate for you.

Initial Chiropractic Consult

Your Initial Chiropractic Consult involves taking a full health history, a physical examination, including both neurological and orthopaedic testing and a discussion about why you chose to see a Chiropractor.

Posture Assessment and Correction

Usually conducted as part of an Initial Chiropractic Consultation, or within review appointments, x-rays and physical testing can be utilised to determine any musculoskeletal issues and appropriate treatment.

Standard Chiropractic Consult

A Standard Chiropractic Consult involves taking a brief medical history and/or injury report with appropriate neurological and orthopaedic tests as well as manual adjustment of the spine and any relevant extremities.

Extended Chiropractic Consult with Graston Technique

An Extended Chiropractic Consult is usually required with more complex issues or when further soft tissue therapy is required. Dr Graham utilises Graston Technique to get the best results for his patients in the shortest amount of time.

Activator Method Chiropractic

Activator Method Chiropractic is a gentle and precise way of applying direct force to areas of the spine that require adjustment without the body requiring full manipulation. This method is particularly suitable for young children and the elderly.

Graston Technique

Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of soft tissue therapy that assists in breaking down scar tissue and muscle restrictions. Dr Graham utilises Graston Technique to complement his musculoskeletal-focused Chiropractic adjustments.
