Service and Scan methods

We work with an open plan system. This means we adjust multiple clients in the same room at the same time.We have found that this system has a positive impact on our patients’ healing process. If you would like todiscuss something privately you can always inform our assistants about your wishes and needs.We will adjust you in our private room if you prefer so

Introduction Workshops

Our workshops are strongly recommended and free of charge. In the case of all medical interventions it is wise to know and compare the outcome/ benefits, contraindications and side effects. It is also good to know what you yourself can do to get the most out of the healing process. All of this is discussed in the workshops but remember: in the end you alone are responsible for your health and wellness. Having a positive energy during the healing process is the best for your body and mind!

Intake Procedure

When you start the adjustments with us, we will follow this procedure.

INTAKE

During the intake, we will discuss your complaints and medical history. We will ask you to fill out a questionnaire before the appointment takes place (click for download). We will measure the muscle tension in your back and neck, using our myovision scan. The chiropractor will perform physical examination and have a look at your posture. After this we will start the adjustment.

   The first appointment will take about 30 minutes.

iDXA

After the intake, we will book a reservation for the iDXA body scan. During this appointment we will also discuss your treatment plan. The scan will give us a better view of what your body looks like on the inside. This makes it easier for us to see if there is a matter of scoliosis or arthritis. We also measure your bone density. The iDXA body scan is a great help for the chiropractor. The iDXA scan is a valuable help for the chiropractor to be able to know the exact needs for your treatment. Attention: The scan is seen as a separate appointment. Therefore additional costs do apply.

   The scan takes about 30 minutes.

   Scans are not done on children under the age of 5 and pregnant women.

Report of findings

During the report of findings we will discuss the results of the iDXA body scan. After discussing these results, the adjustment will follow.We are going to explain the 3 phases of adjustments according to which you will be treated. To correct the spine and reduce the pain or any other physical complaint; we will start with the intensive phase. After this first phase the spine will be stabilised during the stabilisation phase. In this phase, the frequency of treatments will be reduced so that you can finally get to the prevention fase. The prevention phase focuses on maintaining a healthy spine and central nerve system, thanks to which your body keeps functioning without problems. During this phase the focus is on preventing the earlier complaints from returning. If problems do arise at least we are sure to catch them in the early stages.

  The report of findings takes about 10 minutes.

Workshop

We recommend our workshops. During the workshop we will inform you about what chiropractic is and what are the benefits for your body. Even if you are already familiar with chiropractic, our workshop is recommended.

  Our workshops are free of charge and take about 1 hour.

iDXA Bodyscan

The quick, painless and safe iDXA Total Body scan analyses your bone density and shows an image of the ratio between muscles and fat mass. Furthermore you get a clear x-ray of the skeleton, without getting a high x-ray radiation as you would at the normal x-ray machines at the hospital. Thanks to iDXA scan we will be able to determine if your body is in your desired condition and form. We can also see whether there are any physical deviations such as severe wear and tear of the spine or joints. This way we can determine which parts of your body need extra attention and care.

The reason we purchased iDXA Total Body Scan is to be able to offer our patients / clients a better total care. Our services are hereby broadened, prognoses can be made with more precision and also (early) detection of medical indications is more accurate. The safety of the adjustments of people that seem to have osteoporosis will be guaranteed. Although these services are mainly for our patients, the iDXA body scan is also available for those that are not registered as such. Especially people wanting the most accurate diagnosis of their fat percentage and muscle mass.

MyoVision Scan

The Myovision scan measures the tension of the muscles stabilizing the vertebral column. The more tension, the higher your stress levels. Pain can also lead to muscles overcompensating, leading to higher tension.The MyoVision scan shows us these tensions. This helps the chiropractor by indicating where an adjustment is needed and gives visual feedback of your progress. The chiropractor will not only be able to see where there is excess tension but also if there are imbalances. The Myovision scan takes about 2 minutes, and is safe and painless.
