Your First Visit

Your Consultation

CoreScore ResultsWhen you come in for your Private Consultation, 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 our 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, you may be asked to get into a gown so that Dr Brian McElroy (Doctor of Chiropractic) has access to your spine for the both the scans and chiropractic examination.

Postural Scans

Our Chiropractic Assistants will take you through a variety of different spinal, muscle and postural scans. These together give Dr McElroy (Doctor of Chiropractic) 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.


X-Ray Facilities On Site

During the course of your Consultation & Examination Dr. McElroy (Doctor of Chiropractic) may recommend various x-rays to be taken of your spine. This will all be explained by him, with the risks & benefits outlined to you in advance. Should these x-rays be clinically indicated, we can do these on site in our Downpatrick Office. This will be an additional fee which will be explained to you when you book your Appointment.


Your Consultation and Examination

Dr McElroy (Doctor of Chiropractic) 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 chiropractor then performs a thorough chiropractic and orthopaedic examination, testing muscular and neurological function through a variety of methods.

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