When you visit Balanced Body Clinic for the first time a full case history will be taken, including current symptoms as well as past and present medical history. The examination involves using hands to examine the muscles, ligament, tendons and mobility of joints, as well as watching you move. As it is essential to observe how the spine, muscles and joints work together during movement, therefore patients will need to remove some items of clothing during the examination.
