The Health Assessment
In order to determine the best treatment, we begin with an assessment that includes:
- A complete history to identify possible genetic issues, lifestyle habits and other factors that affect your body and its functions.
- An examination of your physical status, with particular attention to the musculoskeletal system. We may also work with your primary care physician to obtain blood work or other diagnostic tests.
- Nutritional analysis, using the Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) system. NRT tests your body’s neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. These relate to the flow of energy to the organs which helps identify nutritional deficiencies.
Conditions We Treat
Chronic pain is perhaps the most common reason people come to a chiropractor. Today’s sedentary lifestyle and the use of computers has lead to many people developing poor posture, which makes for tight, short muscles. Pain and loss of flexibility results from guarding or limiting activities. Back pain, pain in the shoulders, neck or extremities (such as carpal tunnel syndrome) and headaches (including migraines) nearly always respond to our non-invasive, drug-free therapies. Fibromyalgia is another condition we treat.
