Misaligned vertebral joints function poorly, resulting in muscle and nerve tension. To correct this situation, a Chiropractor puts specific corrective pressure at precise locations along the spine or other misaligned joint. This 'manipulation' or 'adjustment' process typically corrects joint alignment and mobility, relieves muscle and nerve tension, improves balance, and can promote healing.

What is an adjustment ?

At your first chiropractic visit, you'll complete a comprehensive health history to help us understand the factors impacting your state of health. This includes information about your diet, exercise habits, past health problems, your occupation, and other important data. During the appointment, your Chiropractor will consult with you about this information. He will then perform a thorough examination, using palpation (touch) and/or x-rays; he may also find it necessary to conduct range of motion checks, strength tests, neurological tests, orthopedic tests, and/or other tests to evaluate your health and identify the sources of your particular complaint. You'll spend time at your second visit learning exactly what was determined from the results of your first visit: where the origin of your problem lies, how long it will take to correct it, and the details of your treatment plan. Your plan may include an adjustment or a series of adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, moist heat, ice, massage, or other modalities of therapy.

Before you move ahead with your plan, we will also provide financial consultation to help you work out the details of your deductibles and insurance coverage. Finally, your Chiropractor will spend time helping you understand your role in taking care of your body, and making wise lifestyle choices. Each visit will vary according to the nature of your particular situation, your specific plan for progress, and your body's response to that plan.

What will my vist and treatment be like?

Your spine is made up of 24 individual bones called vertebrae. These small bones act as a framework to protect your spinal cord from any type of impact. It is when these tiny bones move from their normal position, and push against the spinal nerves that cause a subluxation and the symptoms. You may or may not experience pain when the vertebrae is out of place, this is why it is best to be regularly checked by your chiropractor.

Your body will respond much better if you are given a spinal adjustment when you are in little or no pain.

What is a Misaligment (Subluxation)?

What information should I bring to my first visit?

The most important on your first visit is the feeling you get while in our office. So consider the first visit like an interview for our staff, and Dr. Kolling. Once you have determined that you would like to receive treatment there are several important things to bring:

If you have insurance bring your insurance card so that we can verify your specific coverage. Prior test results (if any) that pertain to your current complaint, like any x-rays taken or reports from another healthcare provider. A list of any questions or concerns that you can discuss with Dr. Kolling

What are some Misaligment Symptoms?

A loss of normal position and movement of the spine; irritation to delicate nerve tissue; muscles which are either tight and spasmodic, or weak and atrophied, resulting from structural imbalance and nerve irritation; localized inflammation and heat; degeneration occurring over time causing other organs and systems of the body to lose their proper function.

When your spine is misaligned (vertebral subluxation), one hypo-mobile section is unable to move while another hyper-mobile area compensates by moving too much. That's when you may feel you need to 'crack' or 'pop' your neck or back. However, cracking your back doesn't adequately take care of the problem. Instead, the immobile or hypo-mobile area should be carefully adjusted by a chiropractor, allowing the entire spine to balance out, otherwise you will feel the need to do it again and again, making the misalignemt worse

Is "cracking" your back bad for you?

How will the Chiropractor track my progress?

You'll find that we encourage ongoing, clear communication between you and your chiropractor, and between you and your other health-care providers. It's best if you can discuss your health concerns openly with us, so that we keep our goals aligned with yours and attain the best possible improvement of your condition.

One of the outcomes of good communication will be our ability to accurately monitor your progress under our care. We look for subjective as well as objective markers of improvement, note them carefully, and modify your treatment plan according to your changing condition. And since prevention is key to development of further spinal problems, it's important to consider getting a check-up even after reaching your treatment goals.
