Are All Patients Treated and Adjusted the Same Way?

Regardless of the adjusting technique, chiropractic care is tailored to each patient’s age, condition and spinal problem. In addition to varying the amount of force used, treatment frequency will also be customised to the individual. Different conditions require different intensities in treatment schedules. The chiropractors at Fornham Chiropractic Clinic will tailor the amount of treatment needed depending on a number of factors. These factors include (but are not limited to), your age, what tissue is involved (e.g. ligament, tendon, muscle, disc), how long you have had the condition, the amount of inflammation and intensity of pain being experienced, and the presence of any unavoidable aggravating factors to your condition (e.g. your occupation and lifestyle). The chiropractor evaluates each patient’s unique spinal problem and develops an individual course of care. Each visit builds on the one before. While visits may seem similar, each patient’s care is uniquely different from every other patient’s.
