Grahamstown Family Chiropractic

Preparing for your Consultation

Please wear

  • loose fitting, comfortable clothing
  • your own face mask

Please bring your medical aid card and your glasses - there are a few forms that need filling in!

The Consultation

The first consultation will be approximately 45 - 60 minutes in duration.  The time will be spent taking a thorough history, performing an examination, discussing treatment options and starting the treatment unless a referral is necessary first.

What can I expect from a Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic is a hands-on profession.  We may ask you to shift clothing in order to view the affected area but your modesty will be preserved at all times.  We will ask you to do certain actions and also apply pressure over joints and muscles to determine where the problem may be.

Joint manipulation or 'clicking' is the form of treatment that Chiropractor's are best known for.  However we have many other modalities which may be included depending on the presenting complaint e.g. dry needling, mobilisation, strapping, rehab exercises etc.
