The doctor of chiropractic treats spinal musculoskeletal disorders. He or she is expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many musculoskeletal injuries that may occur on the job, in an accident, or in your daily life.
Upon injury, the normal position or flexibility of the spinal vertebrae can be altered. Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal alignment and reduce pain and suffering. Gentle manipulative therapy or “adjustment” is often effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status. The doctor of chiropractic can also provide guidance and advice designed to reduce work-related injuries, proper lifting procedures and therapeutic stretching exercises.
Upon completing the patient history form, the Doctor will conduct a physcial and neurological exam to determine the best course of treatment for the patient. Every effort will be made to provide the first treatment during the initial visit. If it is determined that X-Rays are needed, this service can be provided at the office. A treatment plan will be outlined to ensure the patient has a successful chiropractic experience. Patients are also given an opportunity to ask questions to fully understand the diagnosis and treatment plan outlined for them.
