Years later, Jane came to a free screening to find out whether chiropractic care would be useful to her and decided to attend as a patient. After taking a thorough case history and looking carefully at Jane’s signs and symptoms using orthopaedic and neurological tests the Doctor of Chiropractic was able to offer her a treatment plan.
Initially Jane felt the treatment aggravated the condition, but this was because the soft tissues had been injured so long ago that they were quite inflamed. As time went on she felt less irritation after the treatment and is now completely better.
Jane had thought that there was no hope for her as she had injured himself years previously but with gentle regular treatment the vertebra in her neck and upper back had their function improved which helped the surrounding soft tissues to relax.
