Spinal Assessment

A spinal screening is an insightful assessment which looks at your spine in greater depth to see if you require osteopathic care. It typically reviews to see if you have any joint restrictions, postural abnormalities, muscle strain, nerve entrapment or anything else which requires further treatment.

What can a spinal assessment help with?

Our spinal assessment Leeds service looks for more than neck or back pain; it helps identify if you have any of the following:

  • Scoliosis
  • Postural asymmetry
  • Forward head posture
  • Higher or lower shoulders
  • Muscle tightness

Spinal assessments can help you make an informed decision on future treatment for your pain. They’re beneficial for anyone with pain stemming from their neck, upper back or lower back.

What to expect from a spinal assessment

When undergoing a spinal screening at Relieve clinic, you osteopath will first listen to you and ask you questions centred around your symptoms and medical history. It’s important when doing this that you provide as much accurate information as possible for the examination to be beneficial.

After this, they will conduct a physical exam where they will work together with you to detect the areas that are contributing to the pain. You will also be asked to rank the pain on a scale between 0-10. They will conduct easy and effective movements to see how intense your pain is. Then based on the outcome of your spinal assessment, our specialists will advise you if you require any further intervention, be it osteopathy, spinal imaging or referral to your doctor.
