In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. However, when other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care can complement and support medical treatment by relieving the pain and stress associated with the condition. In addition, our doctors have been recognized for their extraordinary skills in diagnosis and are committed to providing you with an individualized treatment plan to take away your pain and restore your health and wellness.
Orthopedic and Neurological Testing
SSC uses neurological testing to examine the muscle strength within the body. By examining muscle strength a doctor can tell whether or not there is pressure on a nerve root coming from your spinal column. Muscle strength tests detect weakness and show where nerve roots are being compressed. During these tests, the doctors at SSC may ask their patients to perform a variety of tasks, including hip flexion, knee extension, ankle dorsiflexion, great toe extension, and plantar flexion power.
Chiropractic neurology is a safe and effective way to evaluate and treat the functional state of your nervous system. If you are experiencing subtle changes in your muscle tone, flexibility, balance or coordination, schedule a neurological test with the doctors of SSC today. Orthopedic examinations focus on finding the cause of muscle, joint and bone pain. They are also used to measure muscle strength and joint ranges of motion. When SSC doctors find the reason behind body pain they can work to correct it with a customized plan of action tailored to your needs.
Dr.’s Dean O’Hare, Austin Faccone and Lisa Beer utilize orthopedic tests to find the site and source of musculoskeletal pain by stretching, compressing and/or contracting certain tissue structures. After evaluating examination results, the doctors will then proceed with the correct chiropractic care option to heal the body.
Stress management is learning how to deal with your stress and keep it under control by utilizing healthy coping methods. The doctors at SSC realize that everyone manages stress differently and that is why an individual plan tailored to your needs is an important aspect of treatment.
