MEDICAL HISTORY

To ensure the most appropriate chiropractic treatment can be provided, we will review your medical history by asking you to fill in a questionnaire to help us better understand how we can help you achieve your health goals.

After going through your medical history your Chiropractor may prompt you to expand on certain relevant information.


EXAMINATION

Your Chiropractor will perform a number of tests and examination procedures to help establish the cause of your problem. The tests performed will vary depending on your presenting complaint but may include:

  • Range of motion tests
  • Muscle strength tests
  • Spinal palpation
  • Sports specific examinations – eg balance and reaction to external stimuli
  • Neurological tests
