Chiropractic is the method of natural healing most chosen by those seeking complementary/alternative health care for acute and chronic conditions.
While you may first visit a chiropractor to relieve pain in the lower back or to treat sciatica, neck pain, whiplash or headache, you will find that a chiropractor views you as a whole person and not the sum of your parts. A chiropractor will work in partnership with you to ensure your optimal health and wellness.
PATIENT CARE PROCESS
Our process for treating patient problems related to the musculoskeletal system includes:
• An interview where we obtain a
detailed health history
• Performing an examination
• Doing tests
• Plot a working diagnosis
• Develop a management plan
• Apply treatment
• Monitor patient progress
• Apply on-going wellness treatments
PARTNERS WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
Doctors of chiropractic work in tandem with other healthcare professionals.
If your condition requires attention from another branch of the healthcare profession, that recommendation or referral will be made.
TRIGGER YOUR BODY TO HEAL
Chiropractors recognize that many factors affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment and heredity.
Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally to help your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease.
NO DRUGS OR SURGERY
A broad range of techniques are used to locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral misalignments (subluxations) in the spine.
Chiropractors may use manual adjustment, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound or massage. But they never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery.
Chiropractic is a natural method of healing that stimulates the body's communication system to work more effectively to initiate, control and coordinate the various functions of the cells, organs and systems of the body.
When you visit a Doctor of Chiropractic, you will be evaluated using time-honored methods, including consultation, case history, physical examination, and receive direction or referral for appropriate further evaluation and/or testing including but not limited to diagnostic imaging referral to a local imaging center, if medically necessary, for tests such as X-ray examination, CT, MRI and/or laboratory analysis, or be directed to other medical or health care professionals to find answers and solutions, on a case by case basis, so you may be well informed and cared for. In addition, you will receive a careful chiropractic structural examination, with particular attention paid to the spine. (We will request your previous medical records to cross reference your physical examination such as hospital, urgent care, primary care or specialists with your medical authorization to work with your condition for maximum medical improvement).
