Today’s chiropractic doctor looks for the underlying nervous system involvement’s which can be the cause of many health problems.
- Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. This gives the doctor a background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition and other details affecting your current health.
- After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be taken to uncover structural and functional problems associated with the spinal column. These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system deficit.
- The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic adjustments may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodic examinations and follow-up reports.
- Since the word “doctor” comes from the Latin word meaning “teacher”, regardless of your doctor’s unique clinical approach, he or she has a strong commitment to patient education.
