Upon entering our office we will ask you to fill out some brief forms that will inform us of your health history and any concerns you may presently have.
Once the paperwork is completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related goals, concerns, as well as potential options.
History and Examination
In order for us to determine what is causing your ailment the doctor will ask you a number of related questions pertaining to your symptoms. The doctor will also perform specialized orthopedic tests to determine which tissues or joints are affected and to what degree.
Your specific condition may require x-rays to rule out any serious conditions or help in completing or confirming a diagnosis.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies are performed, patients will be given further instructions. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
What is an adjustment?
If a problem is noted in the joints of your spine, adjustments are used to care for the joints. A chiropractic adjustment is a very quick but gentle controlled pressure that is applied to a joint to restore the movable bones of your spine to a more normal motion and postion.
Adjustments do at times produce a popping sound, simular to that of a cracking knuckle, when the pressure in the joint is released. Bubbles of carbon dioxide within the joint cause the sound as the gas is released from the fluid surrounding the joints.
The goal of this corrective pressure (adjustment) is to return joints to their proper position, remove subluxations, and restore health to the nervous system. Doing this allows the nerves that originate from your spinal cord to properly transmit without interruption to every single cell in your body.
Treatment may also include physical therapies and/or soft tissue therapies.
