Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal (interactions between nerves, muscles and the skeleton) complaints. Dr. Wheatcroft will start by discussing your history and performing a physical examination to develop a working diagnosis. Imagining and labs are not always required, but may sometimes be a part of your initial diagnosis. He will then use your history, exam and diagnosis to determine whether chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition. If it is determined that you would be more appropriately treated or co-managed with another health care professional, Dr. Wheatcroft will make the proper referral.
Through a process of shared decision-making, you and Dr. Wheatcroft will determine if a chiropractic treatment plan is right for you. As part of this process, he will explain your condition, recommend a treatment plan, and review the risks and benefits of all procedures. Based on the extent, timing or severity of your condition, your treatment may require several visits. You might also receive advice on home care, lifestyle modifications, exercise instructions and nutritional advise. All these components will work together to help alleviate your current health concern and help you in regaining the fullness of life that health brings.
