When you meet your chiropractor for the first time, they will start with a discussion about you, your health and your reasons for seeking chiropractic help. You will be asked for a great deal of information, not just about the pain or complaint that you may have, but also about your past health history. Some of the questions, for example about your job or dietary habits, may appear irrelevant, but they are extremely important to your chiropractor. To ensure that chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition they will establish an overall health picture. If chiropractic appears not to be suitable for you, you will be referred to your GP or relevant specialist.
