Each day will start off with a brief history, revisiting what we discussed in the previous visit(s) and any new issues that may have arose.
Next, before laying down on the table, we will have you sit and take a thermographic reading of the neck and perform an itemized static, muscle, and motion palpation of the cervical spine while paying specific attention to the presentation of the upper cervical region.
Following thermography and palpation, we will perform a series of structural and functional leg length tests to evaluate the body's imbalances as a whole and test how the neck and other regions of the spine are effecting the differences in leg lengths. The rest of the spine will then be analyzed, and all the information gathered will help determine if an adjustment is needed that day based on the patterns of structural and functional changes. If an adjustment is not needed, then you will check-out at the counter and be on your way!
If an adjustment is deemed necessary, then a specific adjustment will be applied to the primary areas of involvement as determined by the exam and then re-checked after the adjustment to make sure we have decreased or resolved the positive indicators for that day.
As quick reference, here is how the visit will go:
