Q. Do I need a referral from my GP?

A.  No.  You do not need a referral from your GP to attend any of the services offered at Maldon Chiropractic.  We aim to offer a complementary service to your family doctor and are happy to communicate directly with your GP to provide them with up to date information for your medical records.

Q.  Should I bring anything with me to my first appointment?

A.  During your initial consultation your Chiropractor will be asking you questions regarding your medical history.  Any previous surgeries, illnesses or accidents including the time of onset may be helpful.  If you are currently taking any medication please bring in a full list to show your practitioner.  If you are having massage and require work to your lower limbs then a pair of shorts may be helpful but not mandatory.

Q. Will I have to undress for my appointment?

A.  For our clinicians to do a full and accurate orthopaedic assessment they will often need to uncover the body part in question.  We always ensure that the upmost levels of decency will be kept and clinic gowns are provided if needed.  You should wear underwear you feel comfortable in and a vest top may be helpful.
