Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. This paperwork provides us with the general information about yourself and your condition to allow us to better treat you.
Once the paperwork is complete, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
The human body and all of its organs are controlled by the nervous system. The nervous system uses vasoconstriction and vasodilatation of the capillary bed to help regulate body temperature. The nerve scan allows us to observe and analyze irritations that cause the skin’s natural temperature symmetry to fall out of balance from the left to right side of the spine. The greater the imbalance, the greater the injury, spinal dysfunction, nerve irritation, subluxation or an unhealthy state.
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
