What to Expect

“A continuing schedule of regular chiropractic checkups can help detect, correct, and maintain optimum spinal and nervous function.”

Dr. VandersliceChiropractic is based upon the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. While your brain is protected by the skull, your spinal cord is protected by the 24 moving bones of the spine.
Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction.

The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction.

After taking a complete case history to review important aspects of your health, a thorough examination will be conducted. You’ll be asked to turn and bend, your posture will be checked, your reflexes and muscle strength will be tested, and other orthopedic and neurological tests may be performed. These tests are designed to show any areas of your spine that may be causing problems.

Today’s Doctor of Chiropractic is well educated. After completing the same undergraduate study that other doctors get, chiropractic doctors receive still another four years of postgraduate college education. Before practicing, they pass a rigorous National Board Examination and meet stringent licensing requirements. To keep up with the latest research, doctors attend seminars, scientific symposia, and read professional journals.

Diagnostic ImagingDiagnostic Imaging

Based on your examination findings, X-rays or other types of diagnostic imaging may be necessary. These images can help reveal pathologies, document the history of your spinal health, and guide your doctor in creating a care program based on your unique spinal condition. Today’s high-tech equipment and ultra-sensitive films help minimize your exposure.
