At our chiropractic center our examinations procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.
Our Examination consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes "Palpation". Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations problems. Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxations. Your examination may also include some specialized equipment designed to better access your spine and nervous system.
The first part of this examination process may involve reading spinal heat differences from one level of the spine to another, as well as from one side of the spine to the other. Heat is a byproduct of circulation, which is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. From this we can see how subluxation may be affecting the part of the nerves that go to your organs and give us a glimpse of how your organs are functioning, like your heart, lungs and digestive organs.
In the second part of this examination scans may be performed on the surface of your spinal area to evaluate surface electrical impulses and measure them along your spine. This helps measure the effect of subluxation on the motor nerve system. This shows us the affect subluxations may be having on your muscles along the spine and the communication between your brain and body via the spinal cord.
The importance of each of these tests will be explained to you at your Report of Findings. However, it is important to note that this examination helps scientifically understand the subluxation processes going on in your spine. It also gives us a baseline for future tests so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is correcting and your nervous system is functioning. Using these examination procedures is much more accurate than just depending on "how you feel" on any given day.
With this important information we can make a more accurate determination of the type of adjustments your spine needs as well as the ongoing frequency of your care. You will be scheduled for your Report of Findings within a few days of your initial visit and is the most important visit. It is at your Report of Findings that we will give you a care plan and go over any special instructions you will need to obtain the best and fastest possible results.

We consider subluxations to be a serious threat to the quality and quantity of your health and that of your family.
