The admission procedures are quite similar to other health providers but what you may find outstanding is the chiropractic treatment table. The tables are used to examine patient’s positioning and movement during spinal adjustments that assist in the chiropractic treatment. The doctor will ask questions such as when you started experiencing pain and take an x-ray for further clarification of your condition. The procedures are registration, physical examination, treatment and follow-up of the patient’s health.

That period is enough for the patient to feel a 40% to 80% reduction in pain.
