Examination and Treatment Regime (7 steps)
You will be welcomed and you will be informed about our procedures. All new patients are asked to document their physical condition.
During your first consultation with the chiropractor, he will talk about your health issues.
Chiropractic, Orthopedic and Neurological examines will serve as a basis of the treatment.
Your chiropractor will clarify if it is necessary to have x-rays done or, if necessary, an x-ray- free computerized measurement of the vertebral.
At your next appointment, you will be given the results of your examination. The chiropractor will inform you about the basis of your problems and explain the upcoming treatment in our office. Only if we are absolutely sure that we can help you, we will accept you as our patient. If this should not be the case, we will inform you about the best specialists.
After thorough explanation of the chiropractic procedure, we will set you on a therapy plan.
The treatments start according to your personal therapy plan as soon as possible to ease your pain. This will be followed by a complete final check up to document the success of your therapy. Depending on the outcome of this check up, a program will be put together to pursue your healing and stabilization process and for further prophylaxis.
Frequency of the treatment
Talking about the vertebral, we are dealing with a "muscle and ligament-secured" joint complex and not "bone secured" joints. Only when we deal with "bone secured" joints, it is possible to "replace" normally within one treatment. The vertebral is set up so that each bone element stacks up flush on top of one another, only secured by ligaments and muscles.
Due to falls, one- sided leg differences or other reasons of static misplacements, i.e. posture, manly the muscles and ligaments are affected that surround the "misplaced" vertebral joints. On one side they are shortened and on the other stretched. If the blockage is resolved around this joint, it will lead to the "adhesion-bang", the chiropractic "crack". The blockage is solved and the joint is moveable again.
Unfortunately, due to the one-sided shortening of a ligament and muscle part, it is inevitable that the vertebra replaces itself in its wrong and old position. Only after multiple manipulations and with the patient's muscle training at home, we will have a situation where the ligament and muscle complex is able to hold the vertebra in its corrected position. To result in a permanent and for the patient's success, there should always be multiple treatments.
