Consultation and History
First thing is gather your health history and assess where we are before any further examination takes place.
Range of Motion Assessment
Next, we have you perform a range of motion assessment to understand your mobility and pain levels. This will allow us to pinpoint where we need to focus the remainder of our examination.
Once we know where to focus we can begin to palpate the musculature along the spine which tells us the specific underlying tension areas that can give us a bigger picture to what is going on.
Report of Findings
When we have concluded the history and examination we discuss what are the main issues and how we are going to address them.
First thing we do is check the Upper Cervical, or upper neck region, of your spine because that is where the beginning of your nervous system is located. Pressure or inflammation in that region can effect every other part of your body. Once we address any pressure in the Upper Cervical region, we search and adjust other points along the spine that are still causing your body to hold tension and cause pain.
