On Your First Visit


We invite you to fill out your paperwork by downloading it online prior to your visit – this helps us to minimize your wait time in the office.  However, if you prefer to complete it in the office, please arrive about 15 minutes early for your appointment.  The paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.

Consultation and Examination

Dr. Newell will review your health related problems and concerns with you, as well as asking questions to refine what might be the root cause.  Our aim at this point is to find out more about you, your challenges and ultimately the goals you hope to achieve with chiropractic care.  We will then carry out a complete, non-invasive chiropractic examination, including basic vitals, postural analysis, orthopaedic and neurological testing, as well as computerized infra-red thermal and surface EMG testing.

Our goal at this point is to establish exactly what is causing your problem, and whether or not we’ll be able to help.  If it’s something we can help, we’ll let you know – if it’s something we can’t, we’ll find you someone who can!

X-ray Study

Depending on your specific problem, and the results of our examination, we may take x-rays as well.  This helps us determine the root cause of the problem, as well as warning us as to the presence of any serious spinal conditions.


After the initial appointment, and after Dr. Newell has had time to review additional studies, you can choose to receive your first treatment.  This first treatment improves the function of your body right away, and we also use your response as a guide to establish a more accurate and personalised treatment plan to meet your needs.

The Doctor’s Report of Findings

Once the information is collected, examinations are completed, and we gauge your response to the first treatment, Dr. Newell will give you a detailed explanation of all of our findings.  We aim for you to have a complete understanding of what’s wrong, how we can help, how long it will take and what treatment will cost.  Here we provide the best treatment and wellness program to address your needs and goals.

All financial details will be covered, including any insurance coverage you may have, so you know exactly what to expect in our office.
