Having and maintaining a healthy frame (spine, hip & shoulders) can be a complex task. Having a professional monitor your status over time and provide advice can be a real asset – like a Dentist monitors teeth.

Being pain-free is not a reliable indicator of a healthy frame. If you don’t have associated pain or symptoms it can be difficult for an individual to gauge how they are going on the inside, and to take control.

Ongoing self-care practices like Specific Exercises and good Habits & Routines should be the mainstay of every frame-care routine. Without professional monitoring it can be difficult to know which exercises and activities will best suit your body and your needs. At Sure Start Health we encourage people to get to know their frame so they can proactively take better care of it themselves.

Chiropractors use carefully directed questions and assessment tools like those listed below to get a detailed picture and give the best advice.

  • Posture
  • Flexibility
  • Local joint motion palpation
  • Tissue palpation
  • Strength testing
  • Orthopaedic tests
  • Neurological tests
