The purpose of chiropractic care is to manipulate the spine into alignment, restore joint function, and eliminate pain. Your spine can come out of alignment due to stress and injury resulting from poor posture, long-term tension, a single traumatic event or other related occurrences. Spinal injury can eventually result in a misaligned vertebra — which can translate to back and neck stiffness, arm and leg pain, and headaches.
The doctors at SSC locate the misaligned vertebrae and, through gentle manipulations, restore spine alignment and the body’s normal function. The chiropractic profession has received recognition for its remarkable effectiveness and focus on natural, drug-free, and non-invasive methods of treatment. The doctors at SSC will help your body restore its natural nerve function, make sure your spine is free from health-compromising situations, and prevent any long-term damage from occurring. Chiropractic care is safer than back surgery, muscle relaxers, and even aspirin.
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.
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.
Drs. Dean O’Hare and Austin Faccone 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.
