What to expect at New Haven Chiropractic Group

A physical examination will be performed in accordance with your chiropractors clinical judgment, which may include diagnostic studies. In addition, a careful spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition. All of these elements are important components of your total health profile, and vital to the doctor in evaluating your problem. Once the doctor has identified the problem, he or she will begin your care by way of physical therapy modalities followed by chiropractic manipulation. Doctors of chiropractic spend many years learning motion palpation (the art of examining by movement or touch) and other forms of spinal examining procedures, so that they can administer specific and appropriate spinal adjustments. To prepare you for the adjustment, various forms of physical therapies are used to help relax the affected supporting tissue structures. The various forms include, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Vibration Therapy, and/or Hot/Cold packs. Their purpose is to reduce muscle spasm and rigidity, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. After the physical therapy, the spinal adjustments will be performed, usually at minimal to no discomfort to you.
