Throughout the thorough examination Dr. Millar listens and explains carefully.
The length of your first appointment is generous, to allow for a thorough assessment, including a review of your case history, a careful examination of painful areas, orthopaedic and neurological tests, and X-rays if necessary.
Dr. Millar will explain the cause of your injuries, and will work with you to devise a treatment plan that works for you.
In any chiropractic examination the ‘Golden Rule’ is…
NEVER presume what the problem is!
For example, if a person walks in who is experiencing lower back pain this may very well be a ‘symptom’ – but it may not be the ’cause’ of the problem. It may be easy to presume by the way they’re walking that the problem is in the hip. But what if it’s not?
A thorough examination must take into account ALL factors. When you presume – that’s when things are missed — misdiagnosis occurs — and why treatments go on way longer than they need to. A proper chiropractic examination is a very exact science with NOTHING left to chance.
Which is why, in every examination, a Whole Body Approach is taken. It should never be assumed that pain in one area of the body is the ‘root cause’ of the problem. If the time is taken early on to carry out a COMPLETE examination – then a proper treatment plan can be put in place with definite results.
