What to expect: Chiropractic Exam & Treatment
Have you ever wondered what happens during a Chiropractic New Patient Exam?
During a visit to Vitruvian Chiro and Rehab all new patients are required to go through a comprehensive exam. It takes approximately 60 minutes to complete and it’s broken down into two sections.
In the first section the treating Doctor will ask you a series of questions to get a better idea of what happened and start to formulate a diagnosis. That is followed by a physical exam where the Doctor checks your posture, range of motion, perform orthopedic tests and check the spine. The orthopedic tests are designed to reproduce your symptoms giving the doctor crucial information to develop a working diagnosis. Depending on what the doctors finds a few things can happen from this point. Either, you will be referred out to the correct medical professional, sent out for imaging (x-ray/MRI) or move on to the treatment portion.
This brings us to the second section, treatment. Treatment usually consists of a combination of the following therapies: soft tissue therapy (massage, stretching, muscle release technique, percussive therapy), spinal manipulative therapy “the adjustment,” exercise therapy, and home care advise. We offer additional therapies such as sports taping, ice, heat, flexion traction, I.A.S.T.M (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization), and cupping. All treatment plans are made on a case by case basis.
At Vitruvian Chiro & Rehab we offer high quality care from one of the best chiropractors in town. Our goal is to decrease your symptoms, improve overall range of motion, increase strength and prevent your complaint from occurring again.
