Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
Concentrating on all areas of the body and particularly those of the spine, chiropractic helps a wide range of injuries that involve joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves (World Health Organisation, 2005).
In your initial consultation you will have an in-depth assessment with the chiropractor where you will be asked about your general health, activity levels, and past medical history to ensure you get the right treatment for you.
The examination centres around your complaint, but other tests may be carried out to rule out other more serious problems. The chiropractor will then discuss their findings with you to help put a plan in place.
Once your chiropractor has determined your diagnosis they will use manual therapy techniques as part of an individualised program containing manipulation, mobilisations, soft tissue work, exercises, stretches, advice, kinesiology taping, acupuncture and other various interventions to best improve your health as quickly as possible.
You are advised to wear comfortable clothing such as shorts, t-shirt and sports bra, if appropriate, that allows our chiropractor appropriate access to the area that needs assessing and treating.
In some circumstances the chiropractor may request the removal of an item of clothing to assess and treat an area efficiently. In these cases the chiropractor will provide you with a gown. Please note that your dignity will be respected at all times during your visit to Agile.
