When it comes to good health for you and your family, preventing a problem is much easier than treating a problem. In the long run, prevention also costs much less.
Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a patient’s case history. This gives the chiropractor a background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, and other details affecting your current health. After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, a thorough orthopaedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be taken to uncover structural and functioning problems associated with the spinal column. These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system deficit. The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of chiropractic adjustments may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodical examinations and follow-up reports.
Chiropractic uses gentle methods to help to address pain, spinal misalignment and nerve irritation. It is also effective in addressing many sports related injuries, like sprains and strains. If prevention sounds like a better idea, chiropractic may also help to keep your body functioning at its best.
Those who are active, have stressful lives, or want to be their very best, find that a schedule of preventative visits are helpful in the maintenance of good health and for keeping your body functioning at its best.
