Chiropractors Typically do the Following

  • Review a patient’s medical history and listen to their concerns in a simple way.
  • Perform a physical examination to analyze the patient’s posture, spine, and spinal muscles, tendons and ligaments, if they talk about having a bad knee or shoulder, and then a few things about their reflexes.
  • Provide neuro-musculoskeletal therapy for the patients that need it, which involves adjusting a patient’s spinal column and other joints.


I want you to imagine you’re walking into a room that’s designed just for you, where every detail, from the floor to the ceiling at a Gold standard, which means this is tailored to make you feel your best when you’re in that room.  “That’s what we aim for in this clinic, so instead of designing rooms that make you feel good, we focus on three key aspects of your body: posture, movement, and muscle function.


They’re not hard to understand but they are something you should keep notes on as a patient. Think of these as the three pillars of health for optimal health, each with its own responsibilities to keep you in top shape.


Posture: Picture your body as a building. A nice new building that is tall and off the charts when it comes to its amenities. Just like a skyscraper needs a solid foundation to stand tall and straight, your body needs good posture.


Most people don’t ever talk about their posture, even though everyone should be reminded why posture is so important to someone’s wellbeing. “When everything is aligned – your hips, shoulders, and head all in a straight line – it’s like your body is giving a big thumbs up. But if things get out of line, like one shoulder higher than the other, it’s more like your body is trying to do a dance move that just doesn’t work.


This misalignment puts extra stress on your muscles and joints, like a building leaning to one side. We’re like the architects who check the blueprint (that’s you!) to make sure everything is balanced from the ground up. Make sense?”


Movement: Now, think about your favorite action hero. I like to throw those in every once and a while. If they’re a superhero, what I’ve noticed is they have this tendency to jump, dive, and dodge with ease, right? Well don’t worry.


Your body is designed for its own kind of action scenes, moving smoothly in every direction and that goes for your patients as well. But what if your hero gets stuck in quicksand? Suddenly, those cool moves are a lot harder to complete.


That’s like when your spine or joints get stiff; turning your head to check for cars or bending to tie your shoe feels tougher. If these things aren’t bothering you yet, trust me. Give them a few years and if you’re not taking care of your body, things are going to start to fall apart. You have to understand each component and why they’re so important. We’re like the sidekick who spots the quicksand and helps our hero stay agile and ready for action.


Muscle Function: Finally, let’s talk about the crew behind the scenes – your muscles. The muscles of your body are the unsung heroes that make all the action possible.


But when your joints get stiff, muscles can get tight and weak, like a support team that’s lost some of its gear. It’s our job as your chiropractic physician to check the equipment, ensuring that every muscle is strong, flexible, and ready to support you, whether you’re sprinting to catch an airplane or reaching for the last cookie on the top shelf.


Everything matters and if we can get you to just take care of the core three here, you’re going to respond better to your adjustments and faster as well.


“On your first visit, we’ll start mapping out your personal blueprint, focusing on these three components. And just like a team that checks in regularly to make improvements, we’ll keep an eye on your posture, movement, and muscle function to help you stay in your best shape of your life.
