Your First Visit
You will have a consultation with Dr Paul Cater to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr Paul Cater to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how Chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, Dr Paul Cater will perform a complete Chiropractic examination including standard neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical tests, including QROM technology range of motion scanning.
Depending on your specific condition, we may advise you to get X-rays from South Coast Radiology who are conveniently positioned next door. X-Rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you will experience your first treatment (adjustment) if the Doctor thinks it is safe to adjust you. This may include spinal adjustments, specific muscle releases, cranial and peripheral mobilisations. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment at anytime.
Report of Findings (Second Visit)
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Dr Paul Cater will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
-How can you help me?
-How often do I need to come in?
-What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, QROM results and examining your spine and X-rays, Dr Paul Cater will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Dr Paul Cater will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
