Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately ill health.
The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system disfunction.
Here is what will happen when you visit your chiropractor for the first time.
A thorough examination.
You’ll be asked to turn and bend, your posture will be checked, your reflexes and muscle strength will be tested, and other orthopedic and neurological tests may be performed. These tests are designed to show if any areas of your spine are causing problems.
These images can help reveal pathologies, document the history of your spinal health, and guide your doctor in creating a care program based on your unique spinal condition. Today’s high-tech equipment and ultra sensitive films help minimize your exposure.
A teamwork approach.
Your health today is the result of your habits, your thoughts, your actions and all the circumstances of your life. Little can be done about the past, but we’re here to help with your future.
Learn as much as you can about the nature of true health and follow your doctors recommendations.
