At Ayr Spinal Care we take great care at the initial consultation to discover what is impeding your health. A thorough medical history and comprehensive physical examination of your spine and nervous system determines how well you are moving and feeling and what affect your problem is having on your daily activities.
Report of Findings
At the follow-up report of findings visit you will be given a personalized summary of your diagnosis and recommended treatment plan. We also provide exercise plans and nutritional advice to enhance your care and enable you to make long-term changes. With chiropractic care we endeavor to do all we can to bring you closer to optimal health in order for you to achieve your health goals.
The Stages of Treatment
There are 3 stages of treatment
Once a diagnosis has been established and you have been advised of your treatment schedule, we work with your body to reduce pain and dysfunction, and increase movement.
At this stage we incorporate at home exercises and intrinsic muscle building techniques, as well as continuing treatment of the initial condition. This is to strengthen the core muscles surrounding the spine, and to reduce the risk of re-injury.
Once a patient is out of pain, and stability has returned to the spine we recommend maintenance care, where we arrange a ‘check-up’ of the spine to address any problems before they arise.
How long each of these phases last will depend on a number of factors such as:
- Age of the patient
- Length of condition
- Severity of condition
- Patient compliance of the treatment schedule
- Many other lifestyle factors
