A complete health history is the first step for the chiropractic patient. Old injuries, chronic problems and the patient’s present symptoms are documented for the doctor to study. Staff are always available to assist the patients with any needs.
After reviewing the history, the Doctor meets with the patient to discuss their problems and concerns. Patients are questioned regarding how their daily physical and mental stresses have impacted their health. A thorough consultation is important to determine a patient’s most effective treatment through chiropractic care
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 and range of motion studies.
Chiropractic examination includes full-length X-rays of the spine. 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.
All members of the staff are competent, trained and well-versed in their responsibilities.
Ours is a team approach. We believe the patient deserves individual attention to his or her particular needs. We work together to achieve this goal.
After the Doctor has studied the health history, examination findings and X-Rays, he meets with the patient to explain the results and the recommended course of chiropractic care.
An information panel is available along with other instructional aids. Questions the patient may have will be answered. The Doctor will explain the spine and subluxations. Each nerve root serves a certain portion of the body and its organs. Impairment of the nerve functions may cause or complicate many disease processes.
The gentle touch of a chiropractor is for patients of all ages. Children are the easiest to help. Their spinal problems are not long-standing, and they respond quickly. However, there is no age limit for chiropractic care. Many patients come with long-standing problems that other healing avenues have not been able to help. In many cases like these, patients find relief at last through chiropractic treatment. This is due to treatment of the cause of the problem rather than treatment of the symptoms.
Safe and effective spinal manipulation, also known as an adjustment, is the primary means of care provided by the chiropractor.
The first adjustment begins to restore the vertebra to its natural motion. The soft tissues, muscles and ligaments are damaged when the vertebra is in an unnatural position. These tissues must have time to rehabilitate. Normally, proper muscle and ligament tone will keep the vertebrae functioning optimally.
All people are unique. Each person’s treatment program is designed specifically for their individual needs. Physical therapy modalities and exercise rehabilitation may be a part of your chiropractic treatment program.
Most patients will have a treatment period ranging over a few months then continue chiropractic care on a regular basis. Wellness care patients benefit from the lifetime of health preservation that chiropractic provides.
We are honored to be chosen as the family Chiropractor. If another member of your family requires care, please feel free to bring this to our attention. We always have time to discuss the needs of you family.
We ask that the spouse of a new patient be present during the Report of Findings. During this time, questions regarding care and procedures will be answered to everyone’s satisfaction.
We are family serving family.
