What To Expect
The first step for a Nordonia Hills Chiropractic patient is filling out a complete health history form. Old injuries, chronic problems, and the patient's present symptoms are recorded on the form for study.
After reviewing the health history, the Doctor meets with the patient to discuss their problems and to determine how they can be best treated through Chiropractic care. New Patients are questioned by the Doctor about how the physical strains have affected their health by precipitating spinal misalignments and subsequent impingement of the nervous system.
Checking the spinal range of motion is a regular part of the physical exam. Other Chriopractic tests such as reflexes are done.
A Chiropractic physical includes full-length X-rays of the spine, an important innovation of Chiropractic. These X-rays show the spine in its natural weight-bearing state. Subluxations are determined by careful analysis of the X-rays, palpation of the soft tissue of the spine, the range of motion studies, and the results of tests with instruments.
After studying the health history, examination tests, and X-rays, the Doctor meets again with the patient to explain the results of the exam and the recommended course of Chiropractic care. A complete information panel is available along with other aids so that any and all questions the patient has can be answered.
Also, the Doctor will explain the spine and subluxations. Each nerve root serves a certain portion of the body and its organs. Impairment of nerve functions can cause or complicate many disease processes.
