Being diagnosed and treated properly
FIVE ESSENTIAL STEPS
Step One: Spinal X-rays. (Without x-rays, a doctor can always make an educated guess as to what is going on within your spine, however with x-rays you can see the whole picture.) "When it comes to your health care, I prefer to see the whole picture."
Step Two: The adjusting equipment should allow the patient to stand and then ride the table down to a prone position. If you are asked to climb on or off the table, the real condition causing your problem can be missed or your adjustment my not be what you need. (A good example of missing the real conditon is the help you seem to get from an adjustment, however the problem keeps coming back over and over again.)
Step Three: Leg length check should be performed on each and every visit. Failure for a doctor to examine any differences will result in failed care. Your spinal balance on a daily basis dictates your spinal stress and either prevents muscle damage (when the spine is balanced) or can be the leading cause of muscle damage, nerve damage spinal damage and spinal degeneration. (when the spine is not in balance)
Step Four: Leg length check should be performed while having the patient turn his/her head right and left. Failure for a doctor to perform this test will result in the wrong, or only part of your spinal condition being treated. (If not checked, the adjustment you get will probably be completely wrong, or just half of the conditions will be treated.)
Step Five: Being adjusting properly from the results found in the top four steps. If these steps are not performed the doctor is leaving conditions undetected within your spine. The difference; getting long lasting great chiropractic results compared to short term relief or no relief at all. ("Short term relief" allows muscles to continually be re-damaged with each reoccurring pain; adding to long term muscle damage.)
