Clinic Visits at Chiropractic Care Australasia

1. What we will ask

Upon calling the clinic to schedule your first appointment our reception staff will ask you a few very important questions regarding your condition and the reason for you making an appointment. If you are in significant pain, please tell the reception staff as this helps us to prioritize the scheduling for your treatment. If you have any specific questions or concerns prior to the appointment, the Chiropractor will personally call you to answer any questions you have regarding your condition. We will be happy to put you at ease prior to your first consultation.

2. What to bring

If you have any spinal x-rays, reports or scans relevant to your condition (even if they are old) bring them along with you, as they may be useful to help create the big picture around your complaint.

3. Confirmation email & SMS

When scheduling your initial appointment, our reception staff, or the online booking system will ask you particular information such as mobile telephone number and contact email address. Once scheduled, our diary system will send you a confirmation email including all of the necessary details about your appointment. You will also receive a reminder SMS the day BEFORE your appointment.

At the clinic

On your first visit to Chiropractic Care Australasia:

  • If you have not already then you will fill out a Case History Report. 
  • You will receive a Consultation concerning your health issues.
  • A Chiropractic examination will be performed.
  • Digital X-rays can be taken in our office if necessary.
  • Complete explanation of all findings from your examination and X-rays will be given.

On your first visit the Chiropractor will tell you whether or not he feels he can help you. If he feels that Gonstead Chiropractic care is not the answer for your health concerns, you will be given our best referrals in the Melbourne metropolitan area.

If the Chiropractor feels that Gonstead Chiropractic can help you, your care will begin on your first visit.

It is our goal to get you back on the road to health as quickly as possible with no predetermined number of future office visits. If Chiropractic Care Australasia can get you back to health in three or four visits, it will be up to you to decide when you need to return. Following initial care, we have some patients that return for a periodic “tune-up” once a month, others once every two to three months and many patients that are seen only a few times a year or every other year. It will be up to you, your lifestyle and your health goals.
