Martineau Chiropractic Clinics

Your First Visit

The majority of our new patients are direct referrals to us by word of mouth. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to meeting you when we will do our utmost to resolve your health issue.

If you are claiming with BUPA or PPP please inform the reception staff so they can book you in with an appropriately registered chiropractor.

On your first visit you will be given a form to complete which covers details such as your medical history, past injuries and contact information.To download this form to complete prior to attending the surgery, please click on the link below ( pdf of New patient form ).

You will then be introduced to your chiropractor where a full case history will be taken, following which you will be asked to sign a consent form to permit us to perform an appropriate examination to diagnose the nature of your condition.

During this examination we will perform a wide variety of orthopaedic, neurological and chiropractic tests. If deemed necessary Electromyographic and X-ray examinations may be performed.

When we have all the information we require to diagnose your condition, we will clearly explain our findings, give you a treatment plan, and advise you to the likely outcome of this course of treatment. We will answer any questions you may have, and when you fully understand the nature of your condition and the type of treatment you have been recommended, you will be asked to sign a consent form to start the treatment program.

If no X-rays have been taken your treatment usually can start on your first visit, if they have been taken, the first treatment will probably start on the second visit after we have had time to examine the X-ray films.

If we find any health concerns that require further examination you will be referred to your GP or other health professional.
