Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, the effects of these disorders on the nervous system and general health.
Chiropractic is a hands-on treatment involving the gentle correction of the spinal or peripheral joint movement and the release of nerve interference and irritation using safe and controlled spinal adjustments.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
This first meeting is vital for many reasons, the relationship of patient and practitioner will be an intimate professional one, where total honesty and trust is paramount between them both.
The initial consultation will assess whether the type of problem the patient wishes to address is encompassed by the practitioner's skill level or Chiropractic care itself or would it be better to refer to a different type of treatment modality.
Being an Evidence-Based Practice it is our intention that we ensure that all information required to make an accurate diagnosis is obtained prior to the commencement of Chiropractic Care.
Correct management of a given condition requires an implementation of a general strategy of the relevant anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and / or biomechanics of a given area or complaint.
For this to be achieved a comprehensive medical history, discussion and physical examination comprising of a postural evaluation, specific spinal analysis, orthopaedic and neurological testing is performed. Revision of blood tests, current medications and diagnostic imaging such as X-rays, CT and MRI will only be requested if clinically indicated.
As the clinic is a registered My Health Record Organisation access to a patients's My Health record if requested will ensure that communication with local doctors, specialists, and hospitals will make sure you get the complete care you need.
