What is a Chiropractic Adjustment like at the Brentwood Chiro & Sports Rehab Centre?

It is a skilled and specific form of treatment applied to a joint and its surrounding muscles and tissues.

What can I expect on my first visit to Brentwood Chiropractic?

The first visit can range from 30 minutes-60 minutes. The chiropractor will obtain a thorough history of your current complaint, and past history of similar complaints, and past medical history. A full physical examination will be conducted including orthopaedic tests, muscle and nerve testing. The chiropractor will discuss your diagnosis and advise you on the treatment plan and any home exercises/stretches that may be appropriate for your condition. Treatment will usually be given on the first visit.
