*Our examination procedures are geared toward detection and correction of "Vertebral Subluxation" (click on this link for info on subluxations).
*Some exceptions will be made if an immediate adjustment is recommended for acute cases on the first visit. Dr. Tabick will determine the need after the examination.
The examination process is comfortable and takes only a few minutes. Dr. Tabick uses a neurological test directly checking for subluxation. Dr. Tabick will also perform a postural assessment and chiropractic exam of the entire spine. This will all relate to finding the cause of your problem during your first visit.
Test results will be explained immediately during your consultation. Dr. Tabick will let you know at this time if the cause of your problem has been found and if upper cervical specific chiropractic care will help you. If so Dr. Tabick will then take your spinal x-rays.
X-rays will be taken on all patients. Infants and toddlers up to age 2 will not need X-rays. Reasons why X-rays will not be taken include pregnancy, age and recent relevant chiropractic style spinal x-rays. The X-rays provide pertinent information for the Dr. confirming postural problems and locating any degenerative processes or contraindications to assure safety before adjusting the patient.
During the report of findings on your 2nd visit the X-ray results will be explained by Dr Tabick before beginning treatment. You will understand how the treatment works, what the length/frequency of treatment is for you and what to expect relative to your case during treatment. We recommend bringing your spouse, partner or anyone directly involved in your health care decisions for the Report of Findings so all questions can be answered before starting care.
