Pre-Adjustment Chiropractic Exam
On your first visit, an in depth confidential health exam will take place. The chiropractic exam will include: consultation, patient history, and physical examination. During the physical examination we utilize a variety of methods to determine the spinal segments that require chiropractic care, including but not limited to static and motion palpation techniques determining spinal segments that are hypo mobile (restricted in their movement) or fixated.
After analyzing the data to this point, x-rays may or not be taken. While not always necessary, they are a reliable way of making care safer by ruling out contraindications while measuring changes in spinal alignment. Viewing X-rays, help us evaluate the health of disc spaces between your vertebrae and accurately assess the position of bones.
If at any point, we feel that you need to be seen by another healthcare practitioner, a referral will be made to lead you in the right direction.
