If you’re visiting with us for the first time, we’d like you to know exactly what to expect. We want you to have a great experience, and will make sure that you feel welcome and supported from the moment you walk in the door.


Your First Visit

Consultation with chiropractor.Part of your first visit assessment will include a computerised spinal scan. If at all possible, on the day of your visit, please try to avoid bubbling bath salts, oils, nicotine, caffeine, over-the-counter drugs, excessive sun exposure, lotions, a heavy work-out or sunscreen.

Your first appointment will take up to 60 minutes. When you arrive at the clinic, you’ll be warmly greeted by one of our staff members. We’ll have you fill out some initial new patient paperwork, and then invite you to watch a short video presentation. Following this introduction to our clinic, you’ll be escorted to a private room to meet with Dr Glenn Fredericksen (Chiropractor) who will conduct a three-part assessment:

  • Consultation
  • Orthopaedic, neurological and postural testing
  • A computerised scan using the Insight™ Subluxation Station.

If necessary, you may also be referred to a local hospital facility for X-ray studies.


Your Second Visit

Consultation with chiropractorDuring this appointment, we will provide you with a report of findings, which is a review of your examination, scan and X-ray results. At this time, we’ll also discuss customised care options and a plan of action to help you optimise your function and wellness potential. You’ll also receive your first gentle Chiropractic treatment during this visit.

Regular Visits

Shrewsbury Family Chiropractic provides a relaxing opportunity to experience positive changes in your health. We never rush our patients through their adjustments, and will never subject you to long, tedious waits. We always enjoy taking the time to learn about your life and hope to build and maintain a trusted friendship as we partner with you in enhancing your health.

Reassessment Visits

During your care at Shrewsbury Family Chiropractic we will monitor your progress and achievement of your goals by completing regular reassessment visits.

Measuring Results

Thanks to the non-invasive nature of our high tech computerised scanning equipment that we used on your first visit we can repeat scans to detect changes in nerve system stress. Through scans together with simple health surveys and performing small physical examinations we can monitor your progress over time.

Like your first two appointments with Shrewsbury Family Chiropractic, your reassessment visit will be slightly longer than your regular visits.

Our office is friendly and accommodating, and children and adults alike love our care. We want kids to grow up to be as healthy as possible, and we have the expertise, training and tools to make a difference. Contact us today!
