Welcome to Central City Chiropractic!
When coming in to our Perth CBD clinic for the first time, we want you to know what to expect, and feel relaxed and comfortable. At Central City Chiro, you will find a helpful and welcoming atmosphere that will put you at ease. We always strive to provide the best customer service, and believe that your treatment starts as soon as you arrive.
Before Your First Visit
Thank you for making a booking at our Perth CBD Clinic! You’re now on your way to better health.
Once your initial appointment has been booked, you will receive a confirmation email detailing your booking information, as well as a digital Initial Client Form. Please endeavour to have this filled out prior to your first appointment. Alternatively, please arrive to our clinic at least 10 minutes before your appointment time to allow this form to be completed. It will provide your clinician with very useful information regarding your health and medical history.
To Prepare for Your First Visit
We advise you to wear comfortable clothing where possible during your appointments. This will allow you to move freely during your assessment and any adjustments or exercises the Chiropractor recommends. Please bring any medical records, scans or imaging related to your current health concern. If you don’t have access to copies of your reports, let our reception team know at the time of booking and we can try to make arrangements to obtain your records from your healthcare provider.
The Initial Visit
Your first appointment takes about 40 minutes and involves your Chiropractor going through details of your presenting complaint, past medical history, family history, followed by orthopaedic tests. If necessary, you may be referred for further imaging at another facility. The first appointment is when your clinician will discuss and tailor a recommended care plan to fit your individual needs. Questions are encouraged, as we are here to listen and tailor your treatment to best suit you.
Treatment will also be included within this visit, whenever appropriate. This count include soft tissue work, Chiropractic adjustments, dry needling, Shockwave therapy, and exercise prescription.
Any required subsequent appointments will be between 20 and 40 minutes long, depending on the recommended treatment plan from your Chiropractor. During these appointments your progress will be reviewed, with consideration given to how you felt after your last visit.
“Will I Need To Keep Coming Back?”
This is a personal question as it depends on many factors, such as what is the original complaint that brought you in for a visit, and what you would like to achieve from your treatment? Just like with exercising and staying fit, everyone has different goals.
As dysfunctions occur before the experience of pain, we generally advocate for prevention rather than just simply fixing or masking the pain once it has been felt. We find it is best to stay on top of your health and wellbeing with the occasional maintenance care/tune-up – much like servicing a car to make sure it is running at its optimal performance. We understand that everyone’s bodies and lifestyles are different, and we will find a treatment plan that works best for you.
