New Patient Examination
On the first visit we will take a complete health and medical history and perform tests to diagnose your condition accurately and precisely. A postural x-ray may be necessary to visualize your spine. A treatment plan is designed and will be presented at your report of findings visit. At that time we'll answer your questions, such as what's wrong, can we fix it, how long will it take, and how much will it cost.
We periodically perform follow-up exams to check the progress of your condition. You will be able to see in precise measurement the changes in range of motion, decreased muscle spasm and tenderness in your areas of complaint. Our doctor uses this information to modify your treatments including reducing treatment frequency, to change course of treatment or to add other therapies.
Diagnostic x-rays are a series of two or more x-rays taken to get comprehensive views from different angles to determine bone disease or health. A postural x-ray, which is included in the new patient examination, is a quick view of the spine to scan for potential problems and is not diagnostic.

Spinal Areas of Adjustment
According to the American Medical Association, there are five areas of spinal adjustment your chiropractic doctor may treat: Cervical (neck); Thoracic (middle back); Lumbar (low back); Sacrum and Pelvis. When diagnosis is made after an examination, the specific level or levels of spinal adjustment is determined.
The Extra-Spinal Areas of Adjustment: Extremities
These include all other joints besides the spine and pelvis. Many patients receive adjustments to their knees, hips, shoulders, ankles, wrists, etc. Most patients will receive spinal adjustments with the extremity to improve the nerve energy supply to the joint.
