A typical initial chiropractic consultation will include a thorough case history which allows the chiropractor to obtain valuable information regarding your medical history such as the duration and onset of your condition, past surgeries or accidents and an understanding of your current health status. After reviewing your history a thorough orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be taken to uncover structural and functional problems associated with the spinal column
The major purpose of the examination is to analyse the condition of your joints, spine and nervous system and how they function. The examination is a logical, step-by-step neuro-mechanical process which attempts to identify distinct and predictable patterns of functional loss.
Chiropractors assess your suitability for chiropractic care, giving careful consideration to the possible health benefits available through chiropractic care in conjunction with any appropriate medical co-management of your condition.
The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic care may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodical examinations and follow-up reports.
CAI chiropractors are highly trained professionals and have a range of techniques to suit individuals from newborn to the elderly. Chiropractors work with the spine and the nervous system. Normal spinal motion is a requirement for normal brain and nervous system function, so improving spinal function has a positive effect on the human being as a whole.
The specific techniques chosen will depend on your age, condition and comfort levels. Chirorpactic can range from gentle hands on techniques to instrument and table-assisted techniques.
The results of chiropractic care are different for every person as each individual is unique. Many people find they have more energy, sleep better, have greater concentration and focus, are more productive, and have a greater ability to resist disease.
Chiropractic care is a good way to optimise your body’s natural ability to adapt and heal.
