SPINAL HEALTH CHECKS
Free spinal health checks at Soaring Health
At Soaring Health, we believe that regular spinal assessment is an integral part of maintaining optimal health and wellbeing. Spinal assessment can also help fitness enthusiasts and athletes to prevent pain, injury and movement limitations and optimise performance. As part of our commitment to enriching lives and helping people to realise their potential, across our wellness, sports and community divisions, we are proud to introduce the free spinal health checks program at our Thomastown and Craigieburn clinics.
How does the spine affect health and fitness?
Your spine not only provides a vital structural scaffold, it is also the critical link between your brain and the rest of your body. Your spine affects your entire central nervous system. It makes sense, then, that even small or gradual spine changes can, over time, result in significant symptoms and impairments. Common changes to the spine include loss of correct balance and posture, which impairs nervous system function and can eventually present as pain, pressure or muscle spasms. Decreased spinal function can also undermine the body’s own healing mechanisms. This can mean compromised recovery from illness and injury. On the flip side, maintaining good spinal health with regular checks can facilitate optimal healing, leading to better overall health and fitness.
Prevention is better than cure
What does a spinal health assessment involve?
This comprehensive assessment measures:
- Orthopaedic assessment
- Range of motion and flexibility
- Tenderness in spinal bones, joints, muscles and other soft tissues
- Neurological testing
- Overall health and wellbeing, medical history and lifestyle factors
What to expect
Your spinal health check with a Soaring Health chiropractor will take about 30 minutes. While this is purely an assessment and no treatment will be provided, you will leave our clinic with a clear picture of your spinal health and how it relates to any symptoms or health conditions you may have, your overall wellbeing and, if you’re an athlete, your fitness and sports performance. Based on your assessment, your practitioner will provide clear, easy-to-understand information and insights that empower you to take control of your body and lifestyle for optimal health, wellbeing and fitness. If your assessment suggests that you may benefit from chiropractic treatment, you will also be equipped with a detailed recommendation and clear expectations about predicted progress and outcomes. We pride ourselves not only on exceptional treatment, but on a transparent, collaborative approach between practitioner and client. We look forward to seeing you soon.
