South Point Chiropractic care, Surrey
What To Expect During Your Visit
South Point Chiropractic uses the Gonstead System, which is unique because it is thorough, complete and specific in both analyzing and treating the spine. We address your entire spine when evaluating for the presence of vertebral subluxations (spinal misalignments producing nerve interference or irritation) which cause ill health. This is accomplished by:
X-ray films enable visualization of the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating for any disease processes, fracture, posture, joint and disc integrity and vertebral misalignments. South Point Chiropractic now offers digital x-rays.
Upon your first visit, Dr. Prii will perform a comprehensive health history, a thorough spinal examination that includes neurological, chiropractic evaluation, and palpation.
Palpation is the process of feeling your spine to detect swelling, tenderness and motion of the vertebra.
The preferred instrument used in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your spine.
The Gonstead Adjustment
After a complete analysis, Dr. Prii is ready to perform any necessary spinal adjustments. The focus of the Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise and accurate as possible. Dr. Prii utilizes his hands to reposition the misaligned vertebra which corrects this bio mechanical problem. This allows for proper nerve function and restoration of optimal health. The adjustment is a gentle procedure.
Chiropractic is beneficial for musculo-skeletal problems. Visceral problems including asthma, digestive disorders, migraines, ear infections in children, bed wetting and menstrual disorders can also be related to spinal nerve function and can often be helped through chiropractic care.
