At the South Georgia Chiropractic, the staff chiropractors are extensively trained to identify the specific cause of your pain or disability. This includes the identification of significant joint and muscle dysfunction, faulty movement patterns, as well as the more uncommon but potentially serious disorders that can produce pain.
The process starts with history taking, which can also be the most time consuming. By completed your patient intake forms prior to arrival for your first appointment, your first visit time may be reduced. To download our patient intake forms, please click here. By obtaining information pertinent to your condition, the doctor is able to rule out more serious problems and direct the examination to the areas or processes that are most likely causing the pain. This is followed by the physical examination, which involves a thorough evaluation of the affected region, muscle examination, the assessment of mobility and stability, as well as neurological examination and general physical tests. Occasionally, following the physical examination it may be necessary to obtain advanced testing such as x-ray, MRI, CT scan, or blood tests. The chiropractors at South Georgia Chiropractic will only request such tests if deemed medically necessary. Treatment may or may not be rendered on the first visit, but the full scope of the diagnosis and recommended treatment will be discussed prior to any treatment being given.
