The Chiropractic Process
You’ll be asked to complete a health care questionnaire that will allow us to uncover previous and current health challenges as well as get an overview of your lifestyle.
The doctor will do a full chiropractic evaluation on you that will include a posture assessment to determine any postural imbalances that can create stress on your body. The doctor will also do a palpation of your spine to uncover areas of subluxations—misalignments of the spine that may cause interference on your nervous system and cause a lower state of health.
You’ll receive a state of the art Neuro-Spinal Scan using The Insight Subluxation Station to detect any interferences on your nervous system. It will evaluate imbalances in the muscles and how your autonomic nervous—organ function—is working. The scans will allow us to detect interferences that you aren’t even feeling—because only 10% of the nervous system perceives pain. This technology is certified by the Space Foundation and has been used on NASA 2 shuttle mission to evaluate the impact of space on astronauts’ nervous systems.
You could be sent for spinal x-rays; these are a very important tool to detect subluxation decay (arthritis) in the spine. The x-rays will provide a blueprint of your spine and will help us decide on the best type of care for you.
It is very important for us that you understand the findings of your exam. On your second visit you will receive a truly enlightening group doctor’s report that will explain the meaning of our findings and the impact they have on your health and wellness.
The doctor will then review your findings with you individually. It will astound you how much you learn about yourself and knowledge is power. You will be educated on the short and long term effects of subluxation and offered choices of care.
You will receive your first Chiropractic adjustment.
On the following visit the doctor will go over more specific recommendations for your care so you’ll be on the road to better health.
