Observation of your movements and posture. We also use technology to measure your posture more accurately in terms of degrees and centimeters. Your posture gives clues to the type of problem and location of stress on your spine.
Palpation of your spine and joints. Palpation is ‘feeling’ with our hands the position, and quality of movement of your joints, the skin texture and muscle tone are also important.
Neurological examination includes checking your nerve reflexes, muscle strength testing (kinesiology), skin sensation and balance. This will help to isolate the level of your problem.
Myovision is a computerized scanner that detects muscular tension or weakness resulting from spinal subluxations.
Orthopedic examination may also be used to stress the joints, muscles and nerves and determine which structures are causing the symptom. This is usually to confirm what suspect and to be able to monitor your improvement.
