You will be given a series of tests. These tests include a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination. The orthopedic tests are designed to test the joints and to reproduce any pain you might have. The neurological tests are designed to determine if any permanent damage has been done to your nerves and the chiropractic tests are designed to determine if chiropractic care would be of benefit.
The computerized thermography scanner is a heat sensing device which monitors the nervous system. Two preliminary readings are taken to establish your subluxation pat tern. For subsequent spinal checks after the first adjustment, the readings indicate whether your spine is getting better or worse. Future adjustments are made only when the original pattern returns, never according to symptoms. Research has shown that often a very slight change in your spine may reduce your symptoms markedly. But, unless a complete correction is accomplished, your level of health will not permanently return to normal.
