Portchester Body Consultancy Chiropractors treat you holistically. This means we will be taking into account the function of your body and its controlling systems as a complex machine. We will be assessing very closely how you move. It may therefore necessary that you undress to your underwear. We have changing facilities at the premises and will provide you with gowns to wear over your underwear. Changing takes place away from any communal areas.
The fact that you have changed enables the Chiropractor to look at how you walk, how you stand, if you place your feet correctly, whether you’re rounding your shoulders, and so on. The purpose of this in-depth physical examination is to help your chiropractor find the exact cause of your problem and reduce the chances of it recurring.
If, for religious or other reasons, you are unable to undress, this should be discussed with the reception staff, and the Chiropractor before your appointment. Headgear of any kind does not normally present a problem. If your Chiropractor diagnoses a problem that will not benefit from Chiropractic treatment, you will be referred elsewhere without delay.
