Our team at Dale Family Chiropractic is here to help you and serve you! We want you to feel comfortable and to have a great experience with us while we focus on helping you to achieve your optimal health potential . The following is what to expect on your first visit with us.
First, we'll review your history with you. Taking a thorough history will help the doctor paint a picture of your overall health and your health needs. We will also discuss your health goals with you.
At our chiropractic center our examinations procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for more information on subluxations). The doctor will begin by "palpating," or feeling your spine by hand. We also use state of the art Inisght technology: Neuro Thermal scanning, Surface EMG, and Heart Rate Variability. These tests will allow us a better picture of how your overall nervous system is functioning. The doctor will also perform specific tests like orthopedics tests and range of motion.
Spinal xrays may be taken depending on your situation and the doctor's clinical judgement. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations. 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. Most patients receive three spinal x-rays at the beginning of care.
Report of Findings
Your Report of Findings will be reviewed either at your first visit or your subsequent visit. During this time, we will review your X-Ray findings, your Insight Core Score, and we will give you a care plan, as well as go over any special instructions with you.
Our Chiropractic Care 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!
