I know spinal hygiene can be confusing and that chiropractic care is also often a pool of misinformation in the public eye. It is for this reason I created this brief video to show you a hands on way to assess spinal motion and get a sense if you would need a chiropractor.
If you notice restriction or discomfort, I urge you not to wait. However, the absence of pain or the lack of awareness or decreased motion doesn’t necessarily mean your spine is fine. It takes a doctor of chiropractic to properly assess the functional state of your spine.
How it done in our practice:
First, we review your health history. Then we have a consultation, followed by a comprehensive examination if warranted. The examination consists of the following:
- Range of motion
- Specific orthopedic and neurological tests if needed
- Static and motion palpation of your spine
- A chiropractic neuro-spinal assessment assessing for vertebral subluxation
- State of the art computerized technological spinal assessment using the Insight Millenniu
I hope you gained some value from watching the video above.
