Your Doctor of Chiropractic will first need to assess the health of your spine to find out if chiropractic care is right for you or if a referral is more appropriate.
A thorough examination starts with a detailed history, neurological and orthopedic testing may be performed together with X-ray evaluation to determine the extent and location of any nerve pressure.
If x-rays are required to complete our assessment, Joondalup Chiropractic clinic is equiped with the latest x-ray technology to save you time and money.
Your examination findings will then be explained to you in plain english giving you information and options available regarding your care and your health.
A chiropractic adjustment is any procedure which helps relieve nerve pressure from a poorly functioning spine. Newborn babies to the elderly receive chiropractic care at our clinic. Doctors of Chiropractic are skilled in a number of techniques that can be adapted to suit you.
While we talk about bones and specifically the vertebrae that make up the spine, chiropractors work with your nervous system to remove any interference that a neck or back problem might cause.
In doing so, nerves gradually regain their health and the body starts to heal. Less pain, greater mobility and flexibility is restored. Muscles start to relax, better sleep and a general feeling of well being occurs as the nerve pressure which has often been long-standing is gradually reduced.
Pregnant women, the elderly, newborn, osteo- arthritis, osteoporosis, herniated disc, whiplash and work related injuries can all benefit from modern chiropractic care.
