Chiropractic Full Spine Examination
If our consultation suggests that you’d likely be helped with chiropractic care, we’ll need to perform a complete examination.
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:
This is a general evaluation that may include the recording of height, weight, pulse, blood pressure and similar objective measurements.
These examinations test your ability to turn, bend and move key joints of your skeletal system through their expected range of motion.
We’ll test your dermatomes, deep tendon reflexes, muscle strength and other aspects pointing to the health of your central nervous system.
These tests can include postural evaluations, static and dynamic palpation and other procedures to reveal neurological problems.
Diagnostic imaging can help locate any bone abnormalities, fractures and reveal your spine’s phase of spinal decay. You can be referred for Radiological X-ray at a Radiology Lab near by for same day x-ray imaging if needed.
On your Second Visit we will review all of the exam findings from today’s initial visit.
