The adjustment or correction of a subluxation is the means of care provided by the chiropractor.
The first adjustment begins to restore the vertebra to its natural position. The soft tissue, the muscles and ligaments, are stretched when the vertebra is in an unnatural position, so these tissues must have time to rehabilitate. Normally, proper muscle tone, ligament position, and the shape of the vertebrae will keep the vertebrae functioning.
You will receive a thorough examination consisting of orthopedic, neurologic, physical and chiropractic tests. Checking the spinal range of motion is a regular part of the physical exam. Subluxations are determined by careful analysis of the x-rays, palpation of the soft tissue of the spine, range of motion studies, and tests with instruments.
The first step for a new chiropractic patient is filling out a complete health history form. Old injuries, chronic problems and the patient's present symptoms are recorded on the form for study. All members of the staff are always available for a complete and thorough discussion with the patient.
After reviewing the health history, the doctor meets with the patient to discuss their problems and determine how they can be best treated through chiropractic care. Prospective patients are questioned by the doctor about how the physical strains have affected their health.
Chiropractic examination includes full-length x-rays of the spine, an important innovation chiropractic. These standing x-rays show the spine in its natural weight-bearing state.
X-rays will allow the doctor to determine if you have arthritis, disc degeneration pathologies, or a condition that may be contradictory to treatment.
After the doctor has studied the health history and x-rays, he meets again with the patient to explain the results of the exam and the recommended course of chiropractic care.
