What Can I Expect From My First Treatment?
Before we start, I will take a full case history regarding your general health background as well as details of your symptoms. This will help in assessing and analysing your particular problem.
I will then thoroughly examine the joints in your body, literally from head to toe, and undertake any further clinical assessment that might be necessary to determine that it is safe to treat you.
Chiropractors have a very finely tuned sense of touch, developed over many years, which enables us to identify issues with the vertebrae and other bones and surrounding soft tissue.
Upon finding a problem, I will use one of a number of light, swift and dexterous techniques, to adjust .
You will be offered postural and lifestyle advice after the treatment to help you get the most benefit from the adjustments you have received, and to raise your awareness of simple things that you may doing every day which may be exacerbating your problem. You may also be given some simple exercises or stretches to do.
