At HPC Chiropractic, we start by evaluating your health and asking about your condition and completing a thorough physical examination. This may involve watching you stand and move, feeling your spine, head and pelvis, and/or requesting x-rays.
We will then give you a run-down of what treatment options we think would be ideal for you based on our diagnosis.
We will then make adjustments to your body where required in an appropriate way. These adjustments are, primarily to the head, neck, spine and pelvis. There are a number of different methods of adjustments that HPC uses including:
You may be adjusted while standing, sitting or lying down – it depends on your symptoms, age and health history and our best practice advice. Sometimes you can hear a clicking sound (known as a joint cavitation) as the spinal joints are adjusted, but this is usually painless. Our practitioners are trained to listen to your treatment preferences and balance these with the health outcomes you are looking for.
