What is your new patient procedure?
When you book in you will receive an email with some details about parking, appointment location, etc . New patients are sent a few forms to fill in ahead of time if possible. This includes an overall health history, a chief complaint form, outcome measures and an informed consent to review. Filling this in prior to your appointment will allow us the most time for assessment, diagnsis and treatment.
What can I do for self care?
There is a free, evidence based booklet available from researchers at Macquarie University that you can download here: Back pain is often painful but rarely serious, and can usually be helped with simple over the counter analgesics or something to decrease pain, such as a heat pack. Some stretching and exercises will be prescribed by your chiropractor. Often times, simply walking is an effective exercise, but this may need to be tailored towards your specific case. For patients with chronic pain, there is a free ebook here about the role of exercise.
