Although a physical exam, active palpation and manual adjusting are important to the way that we normally work, our experienced practitioners have adapted to work with you online via a chiropractic online consultation. Even without being able to treat you physically, they can observe, question you, provide a diagnosis, treatment and management.
We can form a diagnosis by talking to you about your history and symptoms, just as we would in our clinics.
Treatment protocols will be different to seeing you in clinic. This does not prevent effective outcomes.
Education can play a crucial role in your recovery . Helping you understand the cause of your condition, pain and function is central to successful treatment and management.
We can teach you posture patterning, spinal rehabilitation, improve ergonomics as well as deepening your understanding of why the injury occurred.
Regardless of whether online consultation or in clinic, we listen to everything you say. We may ask questions that may not seem immediately relevant, such as about your work and social commitments, family background and history, but there is always a purpose. Your answers help us to build a picture of the cause of your pain. This helps us to create an effective treatment plan.
Emotions, stress and lifestyle can have a significant impact on how you experience pain. Understanding how you live your life is as important as addressing your physical condition.
A spinal rehabilitation exercise prescription can help significantly in your overall recovery. Exercises need to be recommended at the appropriate time. There is nothing worse that over doing an exercise that is too hard for you. Neither would you become strong again if we do not identify the weak links and target those specific regions.
Obviously we cannot do any hands-on therapy during the online consultation. Through the video call software we can work through some neurological integration protocols. This is a very gentle technique which can be extremely effective at both pain reduction and improving function.
We can guide you through self mobilisation and stretching. For certain conditions we can demonstrate hands-on techniques that are completely safe for you to use, on yourself, at home. These provide relief from pain and stiffness and help you get on with your day.
While a chiropractic online consultation can’t completely replace everything we do in person, we’ve have adapted out protocols to give you a consultation that is effective, and with great outcomes.
