What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of chiropractic use manual techniques, including hands-on adjustment or manipulation of the spine to improve function and increase mobility.
Chiropractic involves safe, gentle, specific corrections of the spine or other areas of the body that are misaligned or not functioning properly.
Your First Visit
You will have a detailed assessment of your health. You will be asked about your current health status and also about your overall medical history. Although some questions may not appear relevant but that helps Dr. Mo establish an overall picture of your health to determine whether chiropractic care is appropriate for you.
You will then receive a physical examination (unless there is a specific reason not to). Most of the examination is done while you are fully clothed. A gown will be available if the examination requires you to remove some of your clothing.
Following the consultation and examination, you may be required to have further investigations such as X-rays, MRI scans or blood tests.
If any of these are required you will be given an explanation as to why, and how they can be arranged.
