There are hundreds of chiropractic techniques available today. Some involve the use of specific forces into the spine. Some use instruments and other equipment. Still others may involve very light pressure applied to certain areas of the body.

At Back to Basics Chiropractic your chiropractor will choose the technique(s) which best suits your needs. We welcome you to discuss them with your chiropractor and you should always let your doctor know if you are uncomfortable with any adjustment technique being used. We want your experience of chiropractic to be an enjoyable one!

On your first visit, your Chiropractor will take a thorough health history before examining your spine. The examination involves looking at posture, range of movement, muscle tone, balance and strength. In many cases other tests such as reflexes and various orthopaedic testing will be carried out. We also perform a thermal scan of the spine which gives important information on the way your nervous system is functioning. In the event that x-rays are required you will be advised of this and the appropriate referral made.

Why do people seek care from a chiropractor?
Most people initially consult a chiropractor because of some kind of musculoskeletal pain. However helping people suffering from neck or low back pain doesn’t even begin to describe all the many things chiropractic care can help with.

Some of the conditions that people tell us have been helped during their chiropractic care are: How long does it take for chiropractic care to work?
This depends entirely on the individual. Some people notice an improvement after just one or two adjustments. Others find it may take several adjustments to feel any changes and in still other cases it can take weeks or months. How long it takes to notice improvements depends on a number of factors such as severity, age and level of fitness and general health at the time.
