Consultations with our chiropractors are complementary at Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness. This is a brief meeting between you and the doctor to determine if you may be helped by the services we provide. If the doctor thinks we may be able to help you, he will recommend an examination to gather more information regarding your health condition.
An examination consists of orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests to determine the origin of your problem(s). If the doctor feels as though X-Rays are needed following the examination, they can be performed immediately on site. If the doctor recommends other diagnostic procedures (i.e. MRI, CT scan, etc.) beyond our scope, an appropriate referral will be made.
To help properly evaluate your condition, digital X-Rays will be taken, if necessary. The doctor will read the x-rays and be able to determine if you have arthritis, disc degeneration, spinal misalignment or other pathologies which will affect the way we treat you. The doctors use Posture Ray software to aid in the analysis of spinal x-rays and to measure abnormal deviations. The patients at our chiropractic clinic, Harker Heights can easily see exactly what corrections are necessary and track the progress of treatment, whether for spinal subluxations, scoliosis or a ligamentous injury secondary to traumatic event.
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a process in which a trained chiropractor uses his fingers or a specialized instrument to apply sudden force with controlled pressure on a spinal joint. We provide chiropractic adjustments to restore joint mobility through gentle spinal or pelvic manipulations, at our Harker Heights clinic. Once the normal range of motion of the joint is restored through these manipulations, it has a direct effect on the nervous system of the patient as well as their general body mechanics. Also known as spinal manipulations, these chiropractic adjustments help to improve the physical function of the body by correcting the structural alignment. This therapy relies on the body's natural ability to heal itself. It is based on the principle that the body's structural and functional abilities are closely intertwined, which is why the structural corrections achieved by the chiropractic adjustments performed at our Harker Heights clinic have a direct impact on the functional abilities of the body, hence encouraging self-healing.
Most people have a very limited idea of what chiropractors actually do. Although we get great results with back and neck pain, we can also work on other joints in the body including the jaw, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Many patients in Harker Heights and surrounding locations have enjoyed great non-surgical outcomes with problems such as TMJ dysfunction, rotator cuff syndrome, and carpel tunnel syndrome just to name a few.
