Allocate at least 45 minutes for your first visit. We need to get to know you. And, you will probably have questions for us. On the first visit we will take the time to address your questions or concerns.
Surface Electromyographic Analysis
42 Point Neurological Analysis of Your Spine
During the initial consultation patients usually have a detailed Postural Evaluation and Spinal Scan – Surface Electromyographic Study (SEMG).
The SEMG precisely measures the nerve signals passing out of your spine to the important postural muscles of your back. The measurement is very precise – to one tenth of a microvolt.
Advanced Testing With The Spinal Rehabilitation Team
Digitised Postural Assessment
The Pre Screen Consultation involves an advanced Neuro-Musculoskeletal, Postural, Structural, Balance and Core Strength examination. It is essential to establish a baseline for patient being considered for Spinal Rehabilitation and Postural Correction.
One of the key comments of the consultation is the Digitised Postural Assessment. We use state of the art computerised posture analysis technology to accurately and completely assess a patient’s posture.
Regain Your Health and Feel Great Again.
Understand What is Wrong and How to Correct It
After completing your Pre Screen Consultation and Radiographs your next session with Dr. Hooper will be for The Report of Clinical Findings.
We will cover the questions like:
- What is wrong?
- Can we help you?
- What treatment is required?
- How long will it take?
What Can You Do To Help? Rest. Ice. Rotate Duties. Heat.
Treat your complaint like a sprained ankle or broken leg. Give it some time and let the inflammation settle down with appropriate treatment. We will commence care on your next session with Dr. Hooper – The Report of Findings.
In the mean time, rest up and avoid prolonged and repeated use of affect areas. Exercise or unnecessary overuse, especially in the acute stage, may cause further injury. So try to avoid obvious sources of aggravation.
