On your first visit, you’ll be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Welcome to the Lyonspine pride!
Patient History and Symptoms
In preparation for the chiropractic consultation, you will be asked to fill out forms that provide background information about your symptoms and condition.
We also welcome guests who may not be symptomatic, but want to make sure their body is moving and functioning properly in order to prevent dysfunction later in life.
The Chiropractic Exam
A thorough chiropractic exam in our office includes general tests such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and reflexes, as well as specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess:
- Range of motion
- Muscle tone
- Muscle strength
- Neurological integrity
Further orthopedic tests may be necessary to assess the affected area, along with functional movement patterns and posture analysis.
Based upon the results of the your history and chiropractic exam, diagnostic studies may be helpful in revealing pathologies and identifying structural abnormalities to more accurately diagnose and treat a condition.
Diagnostic studies are not always necessary during the chiropractic exam, and will only be taken if the we have a good reason to believe that the x-ray or other test will provide information needed to guide your treatment program.
Report of Findings
Findings from the combination of the above described history, physical examination and any required diagnostic studies lead to a specific diagnosis and treatment plan.
