What to Expect at Your Chiropractic Visit

Alanna Jarrott, Doctor of Chiropractic, is a fully registered, fully qualified Chiropractor, having completed a 5 year double-degree at the prestigious RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.

Our Chiropractors at Optimal Health Chiropractic have spent many thousands of hours studying the spine and the nervous system in great detail. They use only safe, gentle and effective techniques to help the spine move better, relieve pain and stiffness, and to help the nervous system function better.

Expect us to take your problems seriously and spend the required time finding the right approach for you.


Expert Diagnosis And Care

We do not guess when it comes to your health.

Optimal Health Chiropractic uses the latest in digital x-ray imaging technology and computerised posture analysis. Specialised equipment has been sourced from all around the world, to provide our patients with the highest standards of Chiropractic care.

All Chiropractors are required to regularly review research papers and journals, attend seminars, and further their education in the field of spinal health. This ensures the highest standards of safety in Chiropractic care.

At Optimal Health Chiropractic we travel internationally each year with the office team to investigate the latest research, techniques, procedures and equipment to provide you with the best care possible.

Chiropractic is a primary contact health care profession. This means that a Chiropractor has the skills to diagnose, provide care for and help prevent mechanical disorders of the spine and the effects of these disorders on the functions of the nervous system.

It also means that if the examination results indicate that your particular case would be better helped by another type of care you will be referred to the appropriate health professional.


First Contact

There are many ways to contact Optimal Health Chiropractic. Most commonly you can call us on 0131 662 6999, at this point you will be greeted by a member of our highly trained staff who will be able to answer any questions you may have - if we don't have an answer, we will find out and call you back!

We will then explain the Initial consultation process and book a convenient appointment time. We have early morning and late evening appointments for people with busy schedules.


First Visit (Initial Consultation)

Upon arriving at Optimal Health Chiropractic you will be greeted by one of our Chiropractic Assistants who will offer any assistance or answer any questions you may have.

You will then be shown through the clinic on your way to meet your Chiropractor. At this point we undertake some preliminary tests to help us gather information for your Digital Posture Analysis.

Your Chiropractor will ask you questions regarding your current problem but also about your past health history. During your first visit, you can share what you desire from your life and what you believe is preventing you from making this a reality. This consultation assesses your current well-being and then communicates your definition of a life without limitations.

At the conclusion of the initial health consultation, we will perform a complete and comprehensive chiropractic wellness examination that will test your reflexes and range of motion, as well as many standard neurological, orthopaedic, postural, and physical examinations.

Optimal Health Chiropractic uses the latest in digital x-ray imaging technology and computerised Posture Analysis to provide our patients with the highest standards of Chiropractic care. Your Chiropractor may find it necessary for spinal x-rays to be taken. If you consent to this we can usually take the x-rays during your first visit.

As Doctors of Chiropractic and Alanna Jarrottk are fully trained to take and read x-rays. We do not guess about your spine. If it is determined during your Initial Consultation that x-rays will be necessary in your case, your Chiropractor will discuss this with you. Optimal Health Chiropractic has invested in the latest x-ray equipment. Your x-rays will be taken using our own on-site digital x-ray system.

If you already have previous x-rays or other relevant information please bring them to your Initial Consultation with you.


Second Visit (Report of Findings)

You will be scheduled for your Report of Findings within a few days of your First Visit, at which point we will share the results that we found with you. You may invite anyone in your family to accompany you, if you choose. We consider your current lifestyle choices, goals for the future and challenges that are standing in your way. This is why our recommendations are extremely comprehensive and have the chance to be the solution that you have been seeking to find.

Ongoing Care: Our entire staff strives to keep waiting times to a minimum so we ask that all patients be prompt for their appointments so we can stay on track. Your adjustments will be performed by your Chiropractor. Stretching, exercise instruction, or other advice, may be given as part of the Chiropractor's plan for you. Questions are not only welcomed, they are encouraged. Knowledge is power.

We consistently update and customise your wellness programs. The foundation for our overall health is based on proper spinal alignment, nutritious foods, regular exercise and a variety of stress relief techniques.

We look forward to working with you so that YOU can live a life of complete health and vitality!
