The Active X Spinal Assessment

We are the first clinic in Scotland to offer a full Digital Spinal Assessment, demonstrating how each of your vertebrae lines up next to its neighbours and how each joint moves. This information can be graphically shown to demonstrate how well your spine stacks up relative to “normal”. It’s a great way of showing where the “weak links” are in the chain, helping to guide treatment and to provide you with a detailed insight into the workings of your spine. We envision people wanting to have a Digital Spinal Assessment at least annually – a bit like a dental check-up. Price is £78.
