What to expect at the Falcon Health Chiropractic Clinic
Updated: May 10, 2021
Before starting treatment we will discuss what is wrong with you, what can be done about it and what you should expect when you receive your first adjustment. You will most likely be told about changes to your lifestyle or diet that may be beneficial so that you can help yourself. A part of getting better is up to you, so please follow any instructions and advice carefully and completely.
We encourage you to ask us as many questions as you need, to be sure you understand and are comfortable with the approach outlined prior to giving your permission to proceed with treatment.
Please do take a minute or two to read below the areas of specilaistions we treat.
ASSESSMENT & DIAGNOSIS
Sprains and strains to the muscles of the lower back can cause pain. Sometimes, this pain may radiate to the buttocks or restrict a person’s range of motion. Strains and sprains can also lead to muscle spasms.
Sprains and strains in the lower back can result from sports injuries, overusing or overstretching the back, or lifting heavy objects improperly.
TREATMENT & THERAPY
It has been shown worldwide that chiropractic care is an effective and safe treatment for back pain. Our treatment and rehabilitation techniques provide long lasting results, even when involving other major joints such as arthritic hips and knees.
The first step is to form an accurate diagnosis, which should include information on the cause of the problem, not just describe the pain. Then appropriate treatment can be explained before getting you better. Self help is very important for anyone suffering and we will help you live a more flexible life.
Still the most common reason for people to come and see us, back pain affects the majority of people during their lifetime - so you are not alone. It can occur from obvious incidents and accidents, or from poor posture and repetitive or office based jobs. Some episodes can resolve very easily as your body heals itself without a problem. Other episodes can become persistent and repetitive, while some are associated with leg pain or sciatica.
NECK & SHOULDER PAIN
Like back pain, neck pain is very common, with the majority of people suffering at some point in their lifetime. Some episodes can resolve very quickly and easily, as your body heals naturally without any complications.
Chiropractic care and rehabilitation is an effective way to treat neck pain and frozen shoulder. The best way to proceed is to form an accurate diagnosis before explaining appropriate treatment to get you better.
Other neck pain can become repetitive, recurring enough to become almost a constant problem. Incidents such as road traffic accidents can cause whiplash, which can persist for a long time even with painkillers. Whiplash is only one of the many forms of neck pain. The neck joints, ligaments, muscles and discs can all play their part in causing pain and stiffness. This can be associated with arm pain, headaches, migraine and even vertigo (dizziness).
