Chiropractic: Full Spine Examination
During our initial assessment, if the findings suggests that you will benefit with chiropractic treatment and care, we will go ahead to perform a full spinal assessment and examination.
Our assessment and examination may be different for everyone depending on what we find out in your health's history. This always helps us to what exam to perform:
This is an evaluation of your spine, postural assessment, weight, height, blood pressure, pulse and it includes objective measurements.
These exams are used to test your movements for your muscles in the skeletal system with limited and full range of motion.
We’ll test your nerves including deep and superficial: dermatomes, your reflexes, strength of your muscles and concentrate on your central nervous system (CNS).
These tests can include palpation-(touch and feel the joint, muscle, feeling the spine movements), assessing your posture and assessing problems with a neurological cause.
Radiological X-ray, MRI and CT scans, are all great diagnostic tools used at the clinic that can help and assist in the diagnosis of the patient. In our clinic, our chiropractor pays extra attention to scientific approach. GP's access for referral available on site.
