Helsing is careful, and adapts the treatment to the individual diagnosis and course. The modern chiropractor is a primary healthcare service for muscle, skeletal and nerve disorders, with the duties and requirements it places on a thorough preliminary examination and a sound treatment plan. Where required, the patient will be referred for a complementary examination with MRI and/or X-ray, or referred to a medical specialist for specialized examinations or extended treatment. The chiropractor treatment Helsing performs is specific, based on findings from the examination, and targeted at pain relief and restoration of lost mobility.
Helsing is concerned with mobility and function, and monitoring of range of motion is a fundamental part of the examination, along with other orthopedic and neurological tests. The path to pain relief is often via the normalization of range of motion and by recovering negative functional changes in joints, as well as normalizing tension and spasm in muscles. Impaired mobility can i.a. reveal the origin of the pain, and tell about the conditions that can cause pain and reduced mobility, e.g. reduced joint function, muscle spasm, inflammation, wear and tear etc. The treatment targets both joints and muscles, as well as areas for nerve passage.
