Medical History

Before conducting a physical exam or doing any adjustments, our chiropractor, Dr. Lee, will need information on your medical history. This includes both your own personal history and your family history. You should let Dr. Lee about any medical conditions you have, any injuries you have had in the past and any medical problems that run in your family. This information helps our chiropractor determine the cause of your pain and the kind of chiropractic care that would work best for you.

Physical Exam

Our chiropractor will then do a physical exam of the affected area, such as your back or neck. This exam includes checking your range of motion, determining where pain originates and testing whether or not certain movements make it worse. If necessary, you might have imaging tests done to provide detailed images of the affected area. This helps Dr. Lee determine the extent of the damage to your spine or other parts of your body.

Chiropractic Adjustments

After gathering your medical history and doing a physical exam, Dr. Lee will typically do chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations to align your spine. These adjustments are aimed at bringing your spine into alignment if any discs have become misaligned due to damage. Straightening your spine helps your nervous system work more effectively, which helps reduce the pain you are in. Chiropractic care also reduces the risk of having to deal with this pain again.
