Following the history, a physical assessment will take place, from range of motion, orthopaedic tests, neurological tests and spinal movements, depending on your complaint or check up procedure.
The chiropractor will then either send you for some radiological images if further information is necessary, or you will receive treatment for your presenting complaint or check up.

Foot Levelers: 3D Scanner
To aid our patients further in their quest to better movement, we have the latest state of the art technology to asses the foot, the foot arches and foot biomechanics, which allows the chiropractor to prescribe custom made orthotics.
Because the feet are the foundation and support for the rest of the body, it would make sense to make sure that the structural integrity of your feet are intact.
Most orthotic companies only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body.
Foot Leveler functional orthotics support the three interconnected arches of your foot, the plantar vault. The structural support for the entire body’s equilibrium is gained from your feet’s plantar vault.
This takes up to 5 minutes
