What to expect
Upon your arrival we will ask you to complete our comprehensive intake form before the consultation commences. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out this paperwork so we can get a detailed view of your current health and any health concerns you may have.
Your Chiropractor will then document a thorough health history and complete a physical assessment. If necessary, diagnostic imaging (x-rays) may be recommended. All information gathered will be collated and analysed to formulate a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and improve your overall health. This will be presented to you in detail at your follow up consultation.
If emergency care is required on the day, this will be provided.
What to bring
We suggest that you wear comfortable, unrestrictive clothing to allow your body to move freely during any assessment or treatment.
If you’ve previously had any X-rays or other imaging, please bring in details with you of when and where this imaging was done.
If you have Private Health Insurance “extras” that covers Chiropractic, bring your card along with you. Most health fund claims can be processed through our HICAPS terminal so that you’ll only need to pay the “gap” on the day.
Where we are
Our practice is located at 1127 Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville. On-site parking is available at the rear of the practice as well as limited on-street parking on Frankston-Flinders Road (please check signage for restrictions). We do recommend you take a short walk after each Chiropractic adjustment, so you may prefer to park your car at the Train Station or Aldi car park to ensure you fit this in.
Should you need to change or cancel an appointment time we request a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. This enables us to offer available times to those needing a last minute appointment. A cancellation fee is charged if adequate notice is not given.
If this is your first time experiencing Chiropractic care, congratulations on your decision. From the first welcome you receive as you enter our practice, through to the outstanding care our expert practitioners will provide you with, you can rest assured that you are in great hands. Our practice provides a wide range of services and we often refer to other modalities to ensure you achieve the best outcome.
If you would like to bring a family member or friend along to your appointment, please do so – this may help them to understand your condition as well.
If you have any questions prior to your appointment, please call our friendly reception staff on 5977 7488.
Thank you for choosing Somerville Chiropractic Family Wellness Centre. We look forward to helping you achieve better health naturally.
