Assessment and Chiropractic Treatment

Your first appointment will involve an assessment and later perhaps chiropractic treatment  is appropriate. The appointment is an opportunity for Dr Burns or one of the other chiropractors to find out why you are seeking chiropractic care. It is also an opportunity to  establish your general health and any previous conditions or surgery you may have had. If it is appropriate we can also X-ray you, and process the film at the clinic.

If you need to visit us again, those subsequent visits may include further manipulations, soft tissue massage and any other necessary treatments.

Chiropractic treatment involves highly skilled spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that may be suffering from mechanical problems. As well as manipulation, Dr Burns is an advocate for some soft tissue massage.  The clinic is also able to treat you with ultrasound, or support equipment such as heel inserts or strappings, specifically tailored stretches and acupuncture. Your chiropractor may also advise you about posture, exercise and lifestyle. The diagram below illustrates some areas where chiropractic can be beneficial
