The Process of Musculoskeletal Treatment
During your consultation with one of our MSK chiropractors, we will begin by taking your detailed medical history. We will then undergo a full assessment which includes carrying out a postural examination, neurological tests, orthopaedic tests, spinal checks and other tests where necessary.
If you require an X-ray or a digital thermographic spinal scan, we will carry this out on your first visit. Your scan or X-ray results will be ready within 24 hours when we can then discuss the best approach for your MSK pain management plan and procedures. The appointments tend to last approximately 45 minutes but can be up to an hour if x-rays or other diagnostic tests are taken.
