Education is a vital part of Chiropractic Care. Chiropractors try to empower patients through education enabling them to take responsibility for their symptoms and condition. Patients will be educated as to the cause, nature and source of their injuries. We will take time to discuss the anatomy and physiology of the structures involved, and the reasons behind symptoms, as well as external factors that can contribute to symptoms and how these might be modified. Research has shown that when a patient has a better understanding of their symptoms and condition, they have a greater ability to self-manage and better outcomes.
At Avon Chiropractic Healthcare we make a point of educating patients in a friendly and jargon free manner, we have good listening skills so that patients leave our clinic feeling confident and reassured that their questions have been listened to and answered, and that they fully understand their symptoms and condition.
In addition to talking to the patient, we have also produced various leaflets and online information sheets that patients can read at home at their leisure. We can also provide bespoke exercise programs that can be printed, emailed to the patient, or accessed through an app.
