Your examination at Upston Chiropractic Wellness Center will begin with Dr. Upston taking your case history, conducting a physical examination and possibly X-rays on our state of the art digital X-ray machine.
Dr. Upston also will provide a careful chiropractic structural examination, paying close attention to your spine.
First visits typically take between 30-40 minutes.
Through the physical examination, Dr. Upston will learn how your joints, muscles and nerves are functioning, both individually and together. If needed, Dr. Upston may check your blood pressure, listen to your heart and lungs, perform an orthopedic examination or examine your abdomen for a complete evaluation of your physical health.
Your chiropractic treatment
Your treatment starts with Dr. Upston educating you about what was found in your examination and explaining a treatment plan. Risks associated with your condition and proposed treatment will also be discussed.
If Dr. Upston believes you could benefit from a more specialized examination or that your condition is serious or requires surgery, you will be referred to the appropriate healthcare professional.
Most patients’ conditions can be treated in the chiropractor’s office. Treatment techniques performed can include adjustment of your spine and your joints. Additional techniques may be used to relax your muscles and nerves to relieve pain.
