Health History Discussion: The chiropractor takes enough time to learn about your needs and concerns.

This helps her understand your overall health and any factors that may be contributing to your condition.

We respect patients’ privacy and confidentiality at all times. The chiropractor ensures that sensitive discussions take place in private areas and that patient information is handled securely and in accordance with privacy laws.

Physical Examination: Next, the chiropractor will conduct a physical examination, which may include tests to evaluate your posture, range of motion, reflexes, and muscle strength. They may also use diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays, if necessary.

Discussion of Treatment Plan: Based on the information gathered from your health history and physical examination, the chiropractor will discuss a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may include spinal adjustments, manual therapies, exercises, and lifestyle recommendations.

You are fully involved in decision-making regarding your treatment and we ensure we empower you to take an active role in your healthcare journey with us assisting you at each and every step.

Spinal Adjustments: Spinal adjustments, or manipulations, are the primary treatment technique used by chiropractors. During an adjustment, the chiropractor applies controlled force to specific joints in the spine or other areas of the body to improve alignment and mobility, reduce pain, and promote healing.

Other Therapies: In addition to spinal adjustments, your chiropractor may use other manual therapies such as soft tissue massage, stretching, or mobilization techniques, acupunture to address muscle tension and improve joint function.

Education and Self-Care: Chiropractors often provide education on posture, ergonomics, exercise, and other self-care strategies to help you manage your condition and prevent future problems.

Follow-Up Visits: Depending on your condition, you may need to schedule follow-up visits with the chiropractor to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

It’s important to communicate openly with your chiropractor about your symptoms, concerns, and treatment preferences to ensure you receive the most appropriate care for your needs. Additionally, be sure to ask any questions you may have about your condition or treatment plan during your visit.
