During your first visit, you will be asked to fill in some forms which should take about 3 – 5mins. Dr Luke will then take a detailed history about your injury or problem. He will then perform a series of neurological and muscular exams, read your x-rays (or send you for them if needed), then create a treatment plan. If x-rays are not needed, you will have your first adjustment. The whole process could take 45 – 60mins for the first visit, and approximately 25 mins for the 2nd, and subsequent visits.
Chiropractic, recognized by the World Health Organization, is a separate and distinct profession, and is not a medical or dental qualification.
If you were sent for X-rays or MRI’s during the first visit, Dr Luke will go through them with you in great detail during the report of findings. He will then list out guidelines for managing your pain, and advise you on how best to recover as quickly as possible. Dr Luke will also recommend a physical therapy rehab plan, and give you an estimate on your recovery time.
With the report of findings, this visit could take up to 30mins.
Once you have recovered sufficiently from your pain or injury, Dr Luke will refer you to our specialist in rehab, for some muscle strength testing and exercise prescription. Our goal is to keep you pain-free for as long as possible by teaching you the correct exercises to improve your movement patterns, balance, coordination, and strength.View Testimonials
