WHEN SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
People will seek Chiropractic care for different reasons, but most will come for help with one or all of the below:
Pain – Chiropractic care is an effective way to help pain and symptoms. We help many people with musculoskeletal issues such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, shoulder pain, sports injuries and elderly care.
Prevention- Many will want to prevent issues from occurring or assist in slowing the progression of symptoms and conditions.
Performance- Others will want to perform at their highest level; whether it is a particular sport they do, or they want improved performance day-to-day and to optimise their well-being.
WHAT DOES A CHIROPRACTOR DO?
WHAT IS YOUR INITIAL ASSESSMENT PROCESS?
Dr B will first perform an initial assessment before recommending a care plan. The assessment will include:
A thorough medical history (a form to be completed will be emailed to you prior to your assessment)
A physical exam to assess function, movement and check for any subluxations
A neurological assessment to determine nerve and muscle function, balance and proprioception
A postural assessment.
After the initial assessment, Dr B will provide you with your recommended care plan, whether that be Chiropractic care or referral to a 3rd party.
WHAT IS A CARE PLAN?
The treatment plan or 'care plan' set out by Dr B will usually consist of Chiropractic adjustments as well as some exercises to complement your Chiropractic care. Your Chiropractic care plan is always monitored and therefore can change at any time depending on how your body responds, as each person is unique and heals at a different speed.
THE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT
There are many different types of Chiropractic Adjustments but the goal is always the same; to get the body functioning to the best of its ability. Dr B is trained in a multitude of techniques; most of them using adjustments by hand, for an even more gentle approach. This variety of adjusting techniques allows Dr B to care for a range of clients from new born babies and toddlers, through to teens, adults and the elderly.
