After taking your health history into account, your chiropractor will perform a physical examination. Your chiropractor may feel your spine, joints, and examine your range of motion.


A chiropractic exam will be thorough and may include X-rays, orthopedic tests, and neurological tests.

Spinal Exam

To determine what parts of your spine would require chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will likely use a palpation technique to find what areas of your spine's mobility are restricted.


Many healthcare providers employ the use of x-rays for diagnostic purposes, including chiropractors. They are useful in helping identify the source of a problem, its potential severity, and potentially guiding the course of treatment.


We start by listening to you and learning how your problem began. We do a comprehensive examination that provides us with the information we need, to help you. We answer your questions and talk with you until you have a total understanding of your injury. We then recommend treatment that will help you to heal as quickly as possible. We start you on your path to recovery.


You may have an acute or chronic injury that is a minor bother to you, or completely disrupting your life. Maybe you were hurt from a car collision, job accident, working in the garden, or sitting at the computer all day. Whatever the cause of your health problem, our expertise is in discovering the precise nature of your condition and then providing you treatment that gives you the results you want. We want you to feel great!
