Your First Visit

On arriving for your first visit, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff, who will talk you through our paperwork, which usually only takes a few minutes to complete. (bring your glasses if you need them!). You’ll watch a brief presentation that explains the procedures in our office, including an explanation of our technique of choice, ABC™.

Consultation & Examination

Thorough chiropractors in Newcastle, like James Cobb, will discuss your health goals and concerns, take a thorough health history and perform a thorough chiropractic examination, to determine if we can help. If we can, we’ll let you know right away. If we can’t we’ll do everything we can to help you find who may be able to help. If X-rays are required you’ll be referred to a local radiology centre where your X-rays can be bulk-billed via Medicare. None the less, the majority of patients are able to receive treatment on their first visit.

What Happens Next?

Our staff will help you with your payment for this visit. We have HICAPS available for instant claims if you are a health fund member. They will also arrange your follow-up appointment to go over your results and recommendations. The whole process takes around one hour.

Second Visit - Outlining Your Choices

On your next visit your chiropractor will go over your exam results, as well as discussing the health goals you hope to achieve through chiropractic care – relief, stabilize an underlying problem or getting your spine and nerve system back to optimum function. The choice is yours. Your chiropractor will then outline the best plan of attack to get you where you want to be with the least time and expense. Details such as the likely number of visits required and costs involved will be discussed up-front.
