At Millennium Chiropractic our examinations and procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.
Our Examination consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes "Palpation". Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations problems. Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxations. Your examination will also include Orthopedic and Neurological tests.
The importance of each of these tests will be explained to you before the doctor treats you. However, it is important to note that this examination helps scientifically understand the subluxation processes going on in your spine. It also gives us a baseline for examinations so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is correcting and your nervous system is functioning.
Spinal X-rays: you may be referred out for spinal xrays, depending on your age, and situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, and recent usable spinal x-rays or MRI's. Aside from these situations, x-rays are a common part of the examination process when looking for vertebral subluxations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time subluxations may have been involved in your spine.
With this important information we can make a more accurate determination of the type of adjustments and treatment your spine needs as well as the frequency of your care. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail.
Millennium Chiropractic utilizes the most modern chiropractic analytical, and adjustive procedures and equipment available. We consider subluxations to be a serious threat to the quality and quantity of your health and that of your family. It is therefore imperative that we utilize the most modern, and the well established time-proven procedures to help you. We feel you're worth it!
