What Happens at the Chiropractor?

Similar to when visiting any other health professional, our chiropractors have unique equipment for their line of work such as activators, special drop tables and hands on massage. The initial consultation is quite similar to other health providers but what you may find a little different 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.

Think of it like pulling apart two surfaces that have been stuck together by a sticky substance – when they release, you hear a pop.
