You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

As a new patient coming into our office, you will be greeted by our Chiropractic Office Assistant Lucia or our Office Manager Ciara. We will take care of you, guiding you through to our consultation room and going over the intake form. You’ll read through our consent, and we’ll take a through medical history and details of any current complaint or health challenges. Once this form is complete, we will ask you to get into a gown so that Dr Brian McElroy (D.C.) has access to your spine for the both the scans and chiropractic examination.

Postural and CoreScore Scans

Our Chiropractic Assistants will take you through a variety of different spinal, muscle and postural scans. These together give Dr McElroy an overall picture of your overall health and wellbeing, as well as your individual symptoms. It’s important to note that the scans measure your posture, the muscle activity along your spine, your range of motion, the thermal temperature of your glands and organs and your heart rate variability — an extremely good indicator of overall stress levels. The CoreScore Scanner is one of only a handful in Ireland, and Dr McElroy consistently invests in the latest technology to provide the best results for his patients.

Your Consultation and Examination

Dr McElroy (D.C.) will come in and introduce himself. He will then proceed to ask how the quality of your life is affected by any health challenges you are facing. (Since aches and pains will come and go, it is essential that we understand which aspects of your life are being affected.) We believe this to be very important so that we understand what your expectations are.

The doctor then performs a thorough chiropractic and orthopaedic examination, testing muscular and neurological function through a variety of methods.

Bi-Lateral Scales

Then, Dr. McElroy leaves you to complete his notes, allowing you to get dressed. Once changed you then will be asked to go back out to our front desk where you will step onto bi-lateral (balance) scales so we can record your first reading. This reading is done at each visit before and then after the adjustment to see how the adjustment affects your nervous system pattern. Once we have your reading, we check that your second appointment has been made and then take payment.

If you use glasses, please bring them along for the consultation as there are some health history details to be filled out.
