The first consultation is mainly intended to be able to make a diagnosis, i.e. we try to find out the reason for the complaints. The chiropractor does this by going over the steps below.
The care provider uses a targeted, specific questionnaire to get an idea of the complaints, when and why they occur and of the possible causes of the complaints.
The chiropractor carries out several examinations to analyse posture as specifically as possible. This entails the following:
The chiropractor analyses the data obtained from the previous two steps. He then proceeds to a clinical examination. This comprises a physical examination, complemented with orthopaedic, neurological and muscle tests. He also views the patient’s medical imaging.
After the clinical examination, the chiropractor makes a diagnosis and tells the patient where the problem is situated. This can be followed by the first phase of the treatment. If the chiropractic cannot help you or if further tests are required, the chiropractor will refer you to the right specialist.
