At So Cal Chiropractic you can count on a thorough understanding of your health condition. The patient history identifies the problem with which you are chiefly concerned. You may be asked about other family history, dietary habits, previous types of treatment and other questions, each designed to help determine the nature of your condition.
The following is a list of the services we provide for our patients as well as the entire Costa Mesa & Newport Beach business and private community:
Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free way to get healthy. Patients visit their chiropractor for many different reasons, ear infections, digestive problems, asthma, back or neck pain, colds, headache, sciatica, neurological problems, colic, bed-wetting, menstrual problems and many more conditions. People also visit their chiropractor for more energy, improved sports performance, for feeling more alive, better resistance to disease and to help ensure drug-free lives for themselves and their families. Chiropractors focus to remove a serious interference in your life and your health "the vertebral subluxations" which prevent you from functioning at your best.
In addition to the consultation and case history, the examination is a vital tool to determine and differentiate the changes that may have led to your health problems. In the examination, your Doctor of Chiropractic will do standard and specialized chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological tests to determine your health care needs.
A spinal adjustment is a term for specific movement of vertebrae which have abnormal movement patterns. These levels in the spinal column may cause interference with normal nerve supply. The adjustment is usually given by hand, applying pressure or using various techniques to properly align areas of the spine that are out of proper alignment.
If x-rays are indicated they will be performed in accordance with your doctor's clinical judgement. The spinal x-rays when analyzed by your doctor take on new meaning. They are viewed for more than pathology (disease) or facture; they are viewed for normal and abnormal structural alignment. Static x-ray analysis coupled with a spinal motion examination result in a better understanding of spinal biomechanics to determine subluxation complexes.
After all the information has been processed on your health condition, your Doctor will explain your examination and and x-ray findings and give you a treatment recommendation for your condition. Rehabilitation care is recommended which includes a series of exercises specific for your condition and health care needs.
