Your first visit at the Chiropraktik Zentrum Stuttgart will take approximately 45 minutes.
You will first fill out our initial consultation form. Then our Chiropractor will take your medical history, this means you will be asked for a great deal of information, not just about the pain or complaint that may have brought you to the clinic, but also about your past health history. Some of the questions may appear irrelevant, but they are extremely important. To ensure that chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition, we will need to establish your overall health picture. If chiropractic appears not to be suitable for you, you will be referred to your GP or relevant specialist.
Your details are completely confidential. No one else will be allowed to see your notes without your permission.
Once your case history is complete, your chiropractor will perform a thorough physical examination to confirm any early ideas about your problem. The examination will concentrate on your neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles and joints), but it will sometimes also be necessary to check other things such as your heart, lungs and abdomen to rule out other causes.
After the initial consultation and examination, your chiropractor may offer treatment almost immediately. However, it may be delayed for a day or two. If required we may need to order x-rays or obtain further information from your family Doctor (blood test results, for example) and, where appropriate, refer you for an MRI/CT scan.
