What is a Chiropractic Spinal Screening?
Dr. Shaheeda Chowdhury, director and Senior Chiropractor at the Clerkenwell practice explains.
A Chiropractic Screening is a postural analysis that identifies any abnormalities or dysfunction that may be occurring in or around the body
We do this using the SAM (spinal analysis machine) – a simple method of bilateral measurements and weight distribution patterns to locate potential stress points in the skeletal structure that may be the cause of or lead to future pain and discomfort throughout the body.
The procedure gives a good idea of areas that may benefit from chiropractic care and or other therapeutic care such as podiatry, massage or acupuncture.
The screening is an opportunity to ask any questions or concerns that you have about Chiropractic treatment to a Chiropractor directly.

Shaheeda’s top three tips for a healthy autumn.
- Start a new activity to support your posture.
After the relaxed days of the long hot summer it’s time to get focused! Back to school and work, why not accompany the transition with a new activity to balance work with play. Move and stretch out after long hours cramped over a desk. Breathe more deeply and energise as the weather starts to cool down, good for circulation and keeping the immune system on top form.

- Get the right footwear
Support your feet. At the base of your posture is the foundation of your feet. Good footwear helps when the paths and roads get slippery with rain and autumn leaves – avoid injury, get a grip!
- Bone health and Vitamin D intake
As the evenings start to draw in and season brings a change to the amount of sunshine we are exposed to – it’s time to think about our Vitamin D intake.
Vitamin D is a vital contributor to our bone health, and one of its most important sources is the skin’s exposure to sunlight.
Vitamin D aids the body to absorb calcium and phosphorus from our meals. It is particularly important for people with, or at risk of osteoporosis. Studies show that calcium and vitamin D together can help build stronger bones.
Asides from increasing food sources such as fatty fish; tuna, mackerel, and salmon for example, think about finding a good vitamin D supplement, purchasable from most good health food shops
