Free Spinal Screen
What is a spinal screen?
A spinal screen essentially is a short appointment with a fully qualified Doctor of Chiropractic. The appointment typically lasts 5-10 minutes and is held in the Ringwood Chiropractic Clinic. The typical format for the screening begins with the Chiropractor discussing with the client any issues they might have in the way of conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches etc. This may be followed by a brief fully clothed examination of the spine in the form of the Chiropractor touching the back to feel for any abnormalities.
The objective of the spinal screening is to ascertain whether the client has any spinal issues, which may well be helped through Chiropractic treatment.
In the event that Chiropractic can help, details are given about booking in for a full new patient appointment at the clinic which will allow for a much more thorough consultation and examination to be conducted, along with x-rays if needed, followed by a full detailed report of findings.
If Chiropractic can’t help, advice is usually given as to where the client can go which is more appropriate for them.
Who is it for?
Essentially it is for anybody who has spinal related issues – Chiropractic has been shown to be effective on new born babies right the way through to old age. Correcting problems in young children is usually far quicker than leaving problems to develop until adulthood.
So how does Chiropractic help?
In the most simple terms, Chiropractic is the process of using adjustments delivered by hand to correct the alignment of the joints in the spinal column. This in turn takes the pressure off the nerves that run through it, which are what controls the function and wellness of the body. It is usually the nerves being trapped, which give the warning signs to you in the form of pain.
Is it really free?
Quite simply, YES!
Everything we do during the spinal screening is free and there is absolutely no obligation to take things further afterwards. We simply want to be able to reach out to the community and offer the opportunity for everyone to be able to get out of pain and live their lives to the maximum.
