The First Visit
What can you expect with our Chiropractors and Physiotherapists in your First Visit?
Our Clincis in the City of London, Friern Barnet & Borehamwood offer an initial consultation to all new patients. This is to allow you to discover what is wrong and whether or not we can help you.
The consultation can take up to an hour, during which time the chiropractor will take a full case history, a full medical history and a thorough examination that will include orthopaedic, neurological, chiropractic and functional performance tests.
At the end of the examination a report of findings will be given and includes:
Diagnosis, (i.e. what is wrong due to back pain, neck pain, joint pain or headaches)
Prognosis (i.e. what to expectTreatment plan, if Chiropractic or Physiotherapy care for is suitable for you. If not, then you will be referred to your GP or relevant specialist.
Normally, if feasible, treatment can begin in the first visit. Very occasionally further tests or investigations, such as X-Rays, MRI scans, and blood tests are required to confirm a diagnosis. Your medical details and information are confidential. No one else will be allowed to see your notes without your permission.

Also, we have incorporated LLLT LASER THERAPY
modality (Low Level Laser Therapy Class 1 ) to help you to speed up the recovery of your acute or chronic condition. This new medical technology device bio-stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms on a cellular and systemic level. The laser beam light affects the skin’s surface and simultaneously penetrates the soft tissues up to 4 centimetres depth without heating or hurting the skin and injured soft tissues. As a result, this therapy compliments the chiropractic interventions by providing you with a faster reduction in pain and inflammation of the affected muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. More over, the LLLT laser instrument used in our practises is easy portable and it can be loaned in order to pursue an intense course of treatment. Please speak to our reception to know more .
