You know what hurts. You suffer with the pain. You want relief.
You play an essential roll in the diagnosis portion of your care. This diagnosis process is the foundation on which your care is administered. If the diagnosis isn’t right, the treatment plan won’t be right, and the pain relief you are seeking won't come as swiftly.
Throughout the examination process, you will give a brief overview of your pain's history as well as past and present symptoms. You will discuss any family history of those in your family who may experience back pain, as well. Your chiropractic doctor will put all these findings together for a diagnosis, but, for now, see what condition(s) your symptoms may suggest.
