Health, History and Consultation: Chiropractic is probably best known for its great success in treating back and neck pain. However, the scope of Chiropractic extends far beyond these complaints. Therefore we want to know about all the conditions or symptoms that you currently have. The slightest misalignment of your spine may put pressure on your nerves, which may contribute to the creation of a symptom or condition. Chiropractic is very effective in the treatment of headaches, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, numbness, chronic pain and the effects of stress to name just a few. Therefore on your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a health history to help us better understand the nature of your condition. Examination: During the examination the Doctor will assess not only the causes of your complaints, but the condition of your spine and health in general. The intention is to treat your body as a whole, not just as a symptom. During this process we often discover under laying problems that have not yet shown up as symptoms. Some of the test may be familiar to you such as checking your reflexes and ranges of motion. Other tests are specific to Chiropractic. None of the test involves any discomfort to the patient. Diagnostic Imaging Based on your exam findings, x-rays or other types of imaging may be necessary. Taking these pictures of your spine can rule out more serious conditions, confirm other findings and make your care more precise. Home Instructions: Prior to leaving, you may be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. After you leave, Dr. Mark will review and correlate the results of your history, examination, and any imaging studies.
