When you visit City Chiropractic for the first time, you will be asked for some personal
information. A Doctor of Chiropractic will then spend time taking thorough medical history,
including questions about accidents, illnesses and family medical history. All your details
will be handled with the strictest confidentiality.
Thorough physical examination will concentrate on the joints, nerves and muscles of your
body. Sometimes it may also be necessary to examine other areas, such as lungs, heart and
abdomen. Based on the findings the chiropractor will decide whether any additional
investigations are necessary before treatment can begin. These may include X-rays, MRI
and CT scans and urine or blood tests. In some cases it may be necessary to contact you
GP, which your chiropractor will do with your permission.
Report of findings
After reviewing all the information the chiropractor will explain everything to you in
detail: what is the cause of your symptoms, what can be done about it, how long will it
take, how much treatment is required and how much will it cost.

changes may be discussed and in most cases simple home exercises will be prescribed in
order to maximize your wellness potential. You will also be advised on how to best avoid
future problems, aid your recovery and enjoy health for life.
Chiropractic adjustment is the application of precise force in accurate direction on a
specific joint that is out of alignment or not moving properly. Adjustments can help the
bones to realign, joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves to regain their normal function
and relieve pain and irritation. Chiropractic treatment has been proven to be remarkably
safe - much safer than taking pain killers! There are hundreds of ways to adjust the
spine. Over years of training your chiropractor has mastered a variety of techniques and will
use the ones most suitable for your age, size and specific problem. After chiropractic
treatment, many patients report a sense of increased general wellbeing - not just improvement
with the problem that made them turn to chiropractic in the first place.
