The conditions which doctors of chiropractic¬†address are as varied and as vast as the nervous system itself. All¬† chiropractors use a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a patient’s¬†condition and arrive at a course of treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic use the¬†same time-honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination,¬† neurological diagnostic tests, advance imaging and x-ray examination as any¬†other doctor. In addition, they provide a detailed chiropractic structural
examination by¬†paying particular attention to the nervous system, spine and the¬†extremities.
In an event of accidents, falls, mental stress, tension,¬†repetitive strain at the work station, overexertion, and countless other factors¬†can result in a displacements or derangements of the spinal column, causing¬†irritation to spinal nerve roots and/or intervertebral discs.¬†These irritations¬†are often what cause malfunctions in the human musculoskeletal system.¬†Chiropractic teaches that by¬†reducing or eliminating this irritation to spinal¬†nerves can cause your body to operate more a more efficient and optimal¬†level.
