Examination

Once your case history is complete, your chiropractor will examine you to confirm any early ideas about your problem. The examination will concentrate on your neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles and joints). If any problem is detected that your chiropractor is unable to treat, then you may be referred to your GP if your chiropractor feels that this is appropriate.
Gowns are made available for you to wear for the examination, as well as any following treatments.
After the initial consultation and examination, your chiropractor may offer you treatment almost immediately. However, it may be delayed for a day or two if he / she needs to take or view X-rays or obtain further information from your GP (for example blood test results) and, where appropriate, refer you for an MRI scan. Any imaging will only be requested where clinically justified, in line with current legislation and guidelines.
