We’ll conduct a thorough examination to locate the cause of your problem and formulate your care schedule.

Examination

If our consultation suggests that you’d likely be helped with chiropractic care, we’ll need to perform a complete examination. Our patients often comment on how thorough our examination is, compared with other practitioners they’ve consulted.

Our examination varies based upon what we discover during the evaluation of your health history. What we find will tell us which examinations we need to conduct:


Physical

This is a general evaluation that may include the recording of height, weight, pulse, blood pressure and similar objective measurements.


Orthopedic

These examinations test your ability to turn, bend and move key joints of your skeletal system through their expected range of motion.


Neurological

We’ll test your dermatomes, deep tendon reflexes, muscle strength and other aspects pointing to the health of your central nervous system.


Chiropractic

These tests can include postural evaluations, static and dynamic palpation and other procedures to reveal neurological problems.


sEMG

Surface electromyography is an instrument that locates subluxation patterns by measuring electrical activity in the muscles supporting the spine.


Thermography

Thermography is a way of measuring tiny differences in skin temperature that can reveal nervous system disturbances.


X-ray

Diagnostic imaging can help locate any bone abnormalities, fractures and reveal your spine’s phase of spinal decay.


Blood

The chemistry of your blood can reveal levels of stress, kidney and liver function along with other key indicators of your overall health.


Urine

A urinalysis helps detect infection, your body’s ability to produce insulin and other factors helpful in evaluating your health.
