First chiropractic visit information

  1. 1. Life in Motion Chiropractic & Wellness ~ Relieving Pain ~ Encourage Healing ~ Restoring Range of Motion ~ Promoting Relaxation ~ Aiding Injury Rehabilitation ~ Increasing Circulation
  2. 2. Today’s healthcare consumer has greater access to information than at any other point in history. This knowledge base has developed a greater appreciation for natural, conservative methods as viable alternatives for many human ailments.
  3. 3. Evidence today suggests that “watchful waiting” as a preliminary management plan may avoid unnecessary treatments such as back surgery. By approaching each patient with a holistic concept of healthcare, issues such as back pain, headache, and extremity pain are successfully managed and, when necessary, co-managed by Doctors of Chiropractic.
  4. 4. Chiropractors, also known as Doctors of Chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the body’s muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine.
  5. 5. Chiropractors believe interference with these systems impairs normal functions and lowers resistance to disease. They also hold that skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain.
  6. 6. Chiropractic strategies of health management seek to help the individual cope by helping to relieve structural stress and providing information on alternative options.
  7. 7. Chiropractic health care primarily focuses on examining and evaluating the spine and pelvis to determine if any one area of the spine is malfunctioning or if many areas of the spine are causing abnormal body movements. If present these malfunctioning areas may contribute to stresses that influence the nervous system and compromise its ability to adapt and function.
  8. 8. Chiropractors teach that health is not a commodity which can be purchased in a tablet or bottle; it can only be obtained and maintained by allowing the natural recuperative powers of the body to function unimpaired. Adequate nutrition, water, rest, clean air, exercise, a positive attitude and a properly functioning nervous system are critical requirements for maintenance of good health.
  9. 9. Many people find that regular chiropractic care, as part of a total health care program, enables them to function and perform to a higher potential.
  10. 10. When necessary, your Doctor of Chiropractic will provide recommendations for consultation with other health care practitioners to obtain secondary treatment or the proper counsel you may require.
  11. 11. The examination of your spine, nerve, and muscle systems to evaluate structure and function is what makes the chiropractic approach different from that of other health care practitioners.
  12. 12. During the initial visit, chiropractors follow a standard routine to secure the information needed for diagnosis and treatment. They take the patient’s history and conduct a physical exam that consists of neurologic and orthopedic testing as well as postural analysis.
  13. 13. During the examination, your spine and/or extremities may be moved through various positions to determine normal or abnormal ranges of motion. This information will help your Doctor of Chiropractic determine areas of structural dysfunction.
  14. 14. Chiropractors may even order diagnostic imaging and/or physiologic laboratory tests that can help confirm a diagnosis. If chiropractic treatment is considered appropriate, a treatment plan will be developed.
  15. 15. The primary treatment by your Doctor of Chiropractic, in most cases will be specific vertebral adjustments or manipulations.
  16. 16. The adjustment is usually given by hand. It consists of placing the patient on a precisely designed adjusting table or other special equipment and then applying specific pressure by hand, using precise and skilled chiropractic techniques, to the areas of the spine that are out of proper alignment or that do not move properly within their normal range of motion.
  17. 17. There are also other methods used by Doctors of Chiropractic to perform spinal manipulations. Special tables which provide continuous passive motion, as well as flexion-distraction, have been developed. Instrument adjusting has also been widely used by Doctors of Chiropractic to perform spinal adjustments with the ability to manually control force.
  18. 18. Once these spinal areas have been adjusted or manipulated to restore normal movement, the resulting change should have a positive influence on your area of complaint or discomfort.
