At Therapaedic Physical Therapy our Chiropractors 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.
Our Physical Therapists: are referred to us by medical doctors or via direct access as "walk-ins". At that time we evaluate, assessing the patients ROM, strength, sensation, body alignment, gait, and balance. We also interview the patient and ask questions about the patients current and past medical history
With this important information we can make a more accurate determination of the patients deficits and are able to build a plan of care estimating the frequency of your care.
Therapaedic Physical Therapy utilizes the most modern, evidence-based techniques for physical therapy treatments and untilizes chiropractic analytical, and adjustive procedures and equipment available for chiropractic treatments.
