Welcome to Rosyth Chiropractic Clinic
New Patient Information
We are very pleased that you are considering Rosyth Chiropractic Clinic to provide you with care! On booking your appointment you will be sent an email confirming the date and time, as well as some forms attached for completion. Some of the forms require an electronic signature, which you can do by using your fingertip/stylus on a smart phone/tablet; or by using the mouse/track pad on a PC or laptop. the day before your appointment you will be emailed a reminder, which will contain our Covid-19 questionnaire. It is essential that this is completed before you arrive for your appointment, so please be sure to check your email.
What to Expect
On arrival at the clinic, please put on your face mask/covering before you enter the building and then come in and find a seat in our reception – this is the first door on your right. There is no need to knock/ring the door bell, just come in the front door please. Our Chiropractor will come through and take you to one of our treatment rooms. We will discuss the forms you have completed and your medical history; this ensures we are able to advise and provide treatment as safely as possible. Certain medications and conditions will impact on the type of treatment we can give and techniques we can utilise. You will be referred to another professional if Chiropractic care is unsuitable for you.
We then discuss what has brought you to the clinic, and cover any aches and pains you have in as much detail as possible. After this you will receive a physical examination – this will consist of several things, including joint range of motion testing, joint and muscle palpation, and orthopaedic and neurological testing. Ideally, we do this with some clothing removed, and we have gowns available to wear. However, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with this, and remaining fully clothed is fine.
You will then receive a diagnosis and treatment plan from your Chiropractor. If appropriate and if there is time, you will also receive treatment in some form. We do sometimes need you to come back in for an additional appointment to complete your initial consultation – there is no additional charge for this.
An initial consultation, which includes treatment where appropriate, will last around 45 minutes. Subsequent treatments will last approximately 20 minutes. We will offer you the next available appointment, and aim to see you as soon as possible.
What to Wear?
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. For men, we ask that you wear or bring shorts. For women, shorts and a vest top are ideal. Please avoid wearing skinny jeans, or any clothing that is tight – these make it difficult for us to move you around and you will be ask to remove them – again, we do have gowns for you to use.
Just get in touch if you have any further questions! We are always happy to answer any queries you may have – you can phone, email or send us a message on Facebook!
