See the approaches we take as Chiropractors to ensure our patients receive the best possible treatment plans for their spine.
FOCUS ON RESULTS:
Many treatments and medications only mask symptoms. For over 100 years Chiropractors have been helping people with back pain, neck pain, headaches and much more, by dealing with the cause of complaints. At The Chiro we are experts in analyzing and diagnosing spinal dysfunction and using the most effective techniques to improve your health and wellness.
It's important for us to get a really good understanding of what your problems are. Following a health-history, our Wellington chiropractors will perform a thorough examination of your spine, which may include posture checks, range of motion, static and motion palpation, neurological and orthopaedic tests.
Being able to see a complete picture of your spine (x-rays) gives us a much greater appreciation of the current alignment and state of your spine. Although we don't x-ray everybody, this tool can be very useful. Our chiropractors have had advanced training in the taking and analysing of spinal x-rays. We will explain what we see in your report.
REPORT OF FINDINGS:
Education is something that we are very passionate about. You need to understand what is expected in the road ahead. We have found that the patients that properly understand their own condition benefit more from the care they receive, as they are more in control of their own rehabilitation.
There are many different techniques within chiropractic and all of our chiropractors know many so they can tailor their approach for each patient. Some of the main techniques that our chiropractors use are Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson-Drop, Activator, and iQ, to name a few.
We encourage a pro-active and natural approach to health. We are very focused on educating our patients about how to make healthy lifestyle choices. We try to live these choices in our own lives. "A fence at the top of the hill is better than an ambulance at the bottom.”
