We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see if chiropractic is likely to help you. If it looks promising, a thorough examination will help identify the cause of your problem.

Patients appreciate that we explain everything in advance!


Examination

After your consultation, Dr. Joe will perform a complete chiropractic nerve system examination, using state-of-the-art technology, to detect areas of nerve disturbance. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as needed. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may need to take a deeper look to find chiropractor that takes xraysthe root cause of your pain and dis-ease, we do that with our in house digital x-rays followed by an in depth motion study x-ray analysis.  All of the tests, x-rays and exams help us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In most cases, they can even identify their misalignments/subluxations and degeneration themselves.

There are 3 Main Types of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care for your body, or what we like to refer to as Spinal Hygiene, is like an alignment on a car. If the alignment is off, it will definitely throw everything in the entire car off. When your body is misaligned or, out of alignment, it throws off your entire body and causes wear and tear on other areas. There are three main phases of chiropractic care and where you fit in will be determined after your initial visit. Unfortunately it is very difficult to know what is happening under the surface since only about 10% of our nerves sense pain. Here are the 3 Phases:

Phase 1: Simple Relief Care -Feeling Better

Our first goal is to get you out of pain so when you come into our office that is and always will be first and foremost. Luckily we are pretty good and doing that! Depending on the severity of your problem and where it is steaming from, it is common to need to be pretty consistent with care for about 2-3 months to retrain your body to hold the proper alignment.

Phase 2: The Corrective/ Restorative Care

We want your muscles and other soft tissues to heal completely to prevent future injury so during the corrective spinal care phase, its is typical to be sine for a longer duration of time. Depending on your overall health and the severity of your spinal problem we see on your x-rays and gag from your testing and exam you could need to been seen once a week for another year or two.

Phase 3: Time for Spinal Hygiene or Wellness Care

Once your body has had the time to fully healed, it is important to practice good spinal hygiene and come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. For most people, this only requires a short visit to see our Plano Chiropractor once a month by up two four times per month, which is all based on you as and individual, how well you want to take care of your self and your lifestyle and goals.
