Child chiropractic adjustment (20 mins)
During the initial consultation the Doctor of Chiropractic will start by taking your history of the presenting complaint as well as any other neuro-musculo-skeletal symptoms, and past medical history. Followed by examination (postural, orthopaedic and neuro-musculo-skeletal as relevant to the complaint).
A diagnosis is formed and given to the patient with a brief report of findings. X Rays may be requested.
A brief treatment may be given on the first treatment (varies according to the individual).
Furthermore, this is if the chiropractor is satisfied there is no reason why treatment cannot be started immediately (trauma, potential pathology, other contra-indications for treatment). If treatment cannot be started, then advice will be given to make you more comfortable. Prompt referral will always be made if the Chiropractor deems necessary.
