Your First Visit

The purpose of your first visit is to assess you for the presence of Vertebral Subluxation. The information gathered from the online questionaire and additional questions during your consultation will help us determine what tests are needed.

The Chiropractic Exam

When evaluating a person for Vertebral Subluxation we primarily look at 3 things.

  1. Alignment
  2. Motion
  3. Strength

Alignment

This is done by measuring your Posture. We do this two ways, by photo and by X-Ray.

Posture Screen Mobile is a web based postural assessment tool that measures your posture accurately from a photo.

Your first photo will give us a baseline to work from. 

Follow up photo’s during your Corrective Program of Care will show you how much your posture is improving. 

Bilateral Weight Scales

Your body should carry its weight evenly on each leg. Differences in these amounts may indicate changes in a persons posture. 

Why X-Rays?

In every field of healthcare their is a normal. The spine is no exception.

Your spinal x-ray will show us:

1. Changes in alignment

2. Areas of Degeneration

How we Analyse your X-Rays

In this short video I will show you how we use advanced x-ray software to measure the alignment of the spine compared to normal. 

Motion

When a person loses normal alignment two things can happen to the joints in the spine.

  1. Loss of normal Motion, also known as HYPO MOBILITY,
  2. Increase in normal motion, also known as HYPER MOBILITY

By measuring this we can show you where you spine is being affected.

The Squat Screen Assessment is a secondary part of the Posture Screen App.

Squat Screen allows us to look at the overall flexibility of your spine when doing a functional squat.

Follow up tests are done during your Corrective Care Program to see how your spine is progressing.

Strength

When the spine loses it’s normal healthy alignment the nervous system can be affected resulting in muscle weakness and muscle loss. 

By measuring this we can show you where you spine is being affected and determine the best course of care to get you back to your best.

For your specific age you should have a certain amount of Grip Strength.

The Grip Strength Analysis can indicate how the nerves in your neck are functioning.

Follow up tests are done during your Corrective Care Program to see how your spine is progressing.
