What is Chiropractic?Chiropractic is a specialized health profession where the natural healing abilities of a patient is emphasised. Chiropractors perform a history interview and physical examination before diagnosing a condition. When a diagnosis is formed, a plan of management is developed and a report of findings is provided; it explains the type of treatment that is to be provided.
Chiropractors offer a unique treatment technique called a manipulation or adjustment. A manipulation is a high velocity, low amplitude thrust that is applied to a joint to correct its movement, position, and function. The manipulation is applied within the normal range of motion and is often accompanied by an audible crack which indicates a release of gas from within the joint. There are several physiological effects that arise from the manipulation: increased range of motion, decreased muscle spasm, decreased nerve irritability, reduction of pain sensation, and enhanced function.
The type of treatment chiropractors provide can vary depending on the condition. Drs. Willie and Bobby utilizes several different techniques and modalities to ensure that the patient receives the best possible treatment:
Upon entering our office, we will request you to fill out our patient information forms. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Willie or Bobby to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
After your consultation and with your consent, Dr. Willie or Bobby will perform a complete chiropractic examination involving: neurological, ranges of motion, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. Once the examinations have been performed, Dr. Willie or Bobby willgive you a report of findings. A report of findings consists of discussing your history and your goals, results from the examination and reviewing any x-rays or tests, and recommendations. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Yip believes we can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments,physical therapies, soft tissue therapies, home exercises, and lifestyle modifications.
