In most cases you will need to remove your outer clothing
for the duration of physical examination (an examination
gown will be provided for you to wear). A thorough physical
examination will concentrate particularly on the joints,
nerves and muscles of your body.
It may also be necessary to examine other areas, such as
the lungs, heart and abdomen. Based on the information from
the history and examination the chiropractor will then decide
whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate and if any
additional investigations are necessary before treatment
can begin. These may include X-rays, MRI and CT scans and
urine or blood tests. In some cases it may be necessary
to contact your GP, which your chiropractor will only do
with your permission.
