  • In certain situations, X-rays may be taken to help clarify the history and examination findings and to investigate the presence of underlying bone conditions or other pathology.
  • A diagnosis is made, with treatment options outlined.
  • A prognosis may be given, taking into account your general health, occupation, stress and activity levels. Your response to treatment will be monitored by your chiropractor, who looks for improvement of your condition.
