New Patients

Welcome to our relaxed and friendly chiropractic office in the Leith and Trinity areas of Edinburgh. You will be warmly welcomed and invited to sit down and complete any paperwork that hasn’t already been filled out in advance. The paperwork takes 5-10 minutes. After reviewing your completed Patient Questionnaire, we encourage you to ask any questions you have. In addition we encourage you to advise us of any previous accidents, injuries or traumas. You will also be given a consent form to read and sign which your chiropractor will review with you.

The First Appointment

At this very first meeting, your chiropractor will go through your Patient Questionnaire with you as well as giving you time to talk about your aches and pains and any health issues you may have. It’s important to us that you get everything off your chest, we’re here to listen.

Next, your chiropractor will perform a comprehensive exam. If X-rays are deemed necessary, we will refer you out for those. You will likely receive your first chiropractic adjustment at this visit.

Our relationship with you is very important and we want to get to know you at the start and understand your challenges and reasons for coming to see us.

Please allow 45 minutes to an hour for this first appointment.

The Second Appointment

When you return, your chiropractor will provide you with a Report of Findings following your initial examinations and give you a diagnosis. We encourage you to ask any questions or provide your chiropractor with any observations about anything that’s changed since your last visit. We aim to explain our findings simply, succinctly and honestly.

If we consider that this is something we can assist you with we will suggest a Plan of Care specifically tailored for you and your goals. We will explain why we advise this plan, what the likely outcomes will be and how long it will take to achieve your goals. If we do not think we can assist you we will say so and suggest who else could.

Your treatment plan will also involve your commitment to following exercises, and considering changes you could make to improve your health.

We will also discuss the cost of the treatment and discuss various payment options to suit you.


Your Chiropractic Journey

Many people initially come to see us to relieve a specific pain. Once that has alleviated we encourage you to go on to corrective treatment where we are enabling your body to rebuild  and maintain its health. This may take a couple of months depending on what your condition is.

Following this we have many patients who come to us for what we call “Lifestyle chiropractic”, which includes chiropractic along with their own ongoing healthy lifestyle of eating well, regular exercise and trying to keep good physical and mental health.

Going to the gym regularly to work out can help you stay fit. Likewise, seeing the dentist twice a year for checkups can help you maintain optimal oral health. Regular chiropractic care may help you enjoy better spinal and overall health. Everything of value requires maintenance. When people get older, their number one complaint is their bad back. That’s why regular chiropractic care is valuable. It can help you at every stage of life and help your body heal when you have falls or other types of physical stress.

Whether you want to see us for occasional pain relief or regular maintenance care, we are always happy to assist you.

Our Approach to Patient Education

Every time you come in for care, your chiropractor will provide a little bit more about the bigger picture, about how the neurology works. We’ll meet you where you are but also challenge you to look at the bigger opportunity of taking your health to the next level.
