What to expect when you visit our Chiropractor in London?

A typical visit to our Chiropractor in London includes an initial case history, physical exam, treatment, and follow-up plan. You can find more information about this below.

Initial Chiropractic Consultation

You will likely complete a health questionnaire and answer questions about your health history. Typically the chiropractor asks you to indicate where you are experiencing discomfort followed by some health questions regarding your complaint/ reason for visit.

Physical Exam

The chiropractor will start with a routine physical exam, then follow it with an exam that focuses on the spine, with particular attention given to the areas of complaint. The chiropractor will most likely examine your whole spine. For example, if you had a low back complaint, the chiropractor would also likely perform a neck exam because the adaptations resulting from injury in one area can result in secondary irritations somewhere else in the spine.
The physical exam typically includes a variety of assessments, such as range of motion tests, palpation, reflex testing, muscle strength comparisons, and neurological and orthopedic tests focused on the main complaint.

What goes into a chiropractic treatment plan?

Following the assessments, our chiropractor in London will develop a treatment plan that takes into account:

 

  • The extent of your injury or irritation
  • Your general health
  • The condition of your spine as affected by age and previous injury
  • What your goals are

 

Your goals of treatment should result from the discussion you have with your chiropractor. Many people seek simple relief of pain or discomfort, while others want to begin a regimen of ongoing care meant to improve their general health.
In the initial consultation, your chiropractor will tell you the status of your condition and recommend an approach to care.

What is a typical chiropractic treatment performed by our Chiropractor in London?

“Chiropractic Adjustments” are usually the central part of chiropractic treatment. The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. In other words, an adjustment involves a lot more than simply opening up a joint.

 

Your London Chiropractor will most often make these adjustments to the spine, but he or she might adjust other joints, such as the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, or shoulder in order to restore structural alignment or to improve joint function. Again, proper structure is necessary for proper function, and proper extremity function is an important part of healthy daily living.

 

If you can’t tolerate the manual adjustments, you may instead receive mild or non-force techniques.

Adjustments are often accompanied by non-manual therapies such as application of heat or ice, soft tissue therapy, rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle advice. Feel free to ask one of our Chiropractors in central London to know more.
