A comprehensive chiropractic exam is performed to assess the overall function of the body and help identify any upstream problems that may be contributing to your health problems.
specific spinal health examination
postural and gait evaluation
flexibility and motion tests
any neurological testing needed
Specific focus will be given to exploring the alignment and movement in the spine, as well as providing information on any triggers that cause pain or discomfort. The exam provides vital information leading the doctor to a better understand of your current state of health.
A set of Chiropractic postural specific x-rays will be taken to have an accurate assessment of any damage and misalignments in the spine. Our X-ray system allows us to immediately see your spine without processing films and minimizing our need for re-takes while allowing us to apply imaging techniques to better visualize the structures we will be working with. A good majority of the recommendations and care received will be based on these x-ray findings.
When you arrive for your second appointment, a Report of Finding will be conducted at which time the cause of your condition or any abnormal findings will be discussed. After reviewing your case, the doctor will decide if you are a candidate for chiropractic care! A thorough explanation of care recommendations and action steps will be discussed, including finances and how we can help you reach your health goals.
This concludes the initial evaluation and at this point, it will take the doctor 24 hours to carefully review all findings from the history, exam, and x-rays to come up with the appropriate care plan to get you feeling at your best again. A second appointment must be scheduled within 1-2 days for you to return to hear the doctors findings. This appointment is completely covered by the initial exam fee!
