What To Expect On Your First Visit
Lilliput health in Poole boasts a vibrant chiropractic clinic with chiropractors to help find the root cause of your problem. The first visit will include a detailed account of the presenting complaint along with your relevant medical background. A thorough examination of the patient will consist of:
- Detailed case history
- Physical examination
- Orthopaedic and neurological tests
- Observation of posture and biomechanical stresses
- Examination of individual joints and related soft tissues
- X-rays, when clinically necessary, in accordance with the guidelines of the Royal College of Radiologists
The above will help identify the involved structures and specific problem areas, which will need to be treated. Occasionally X-rays or other relevant investigations may be needed and this will be discussed with you. When needed the chiropractor may liaise closely with other medical professionals to provide you with the highest of care.
An individual treatment will be designed for you, specific to the condition and consideration is given to the individual’s age and lifestyle. A full explanation of the examination findings and only after consent is gained treatment will follow.
