You will be asked for a great deal of information about your condition(s), past medical history, overall health and your lifestyle. This will help build up a detailed picture of the problem.
Once your case history is complete we perform a full examination including orthopedic and neurological testing in order to diagnose the underlying problem.
Before starting treatment we will discuss what is wrong with you, what can be done about it and what you should expect when you receive your first adjustment. You will most likely be told about changes to your lifestyle or diet that may be beneficial so that you can help yourself. A part of getting better is up to you, so please follow any instructions and advice carefully and completely.
treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other related areas of the body that are not moving properly. This helps to restore mobility, alleviates pain and tightness so that damaged areas can heal. It is an all natural, non-invasive, safe and effective way of reaching your optimal health.
Some patients have mild reactions such as temporary aches and pains after being manipulated as the body adjusts. Others report an increased feeling of well being. Reaction is individual.
Ongoing well being/maintenance treatment
There is no doubt that many patients benefit from regular care at intervals of time that may vary, depending on factors such as the condition for which they are being treated, the type of work that they do and other activities that they engage in.
We believe that prevention is better than cure and may discuss a maintenance plan with you to help prevent recurrence, minimize degenerative changes or simply optimise your spinal health and well being.
If necessary we will give you supportive exercises to strengthen the injured area or suggest changes to your diet or lifestyle.
