If you're looking to undergo a spinal and postural screening, you should consider a chiropractor. The screening process at True Potential Chiropractic within the Beaverton area allows our chiropractor to assess your spine and posture. A spinal and postural assessment is a physical examination of the spine and posture. It is an integral part of a work health and safety procedure. A physical assessment is often called 'screening'; however, there are different types of screening.
The spinal and postural screening process is used to evaluate a person's health based on their posture, mobility, and any pain or discomfort that they may be experiencing. During the screening, our osteopathic physician will check for proper alignment of the head, neck, body, and pelvic regions and check for misalignment or improper movement.
The Screening Process
The spinal screening process begins with a consultation and a tour of the facility by one of our experienced chiropractors. Once you have been acquainted with what will take place, it is time for you to get on the table for a thorough examination. Having been given specific instructions on how to be positioned and having answered questions about current or past injuries, you will then be placed on the table and asked to lie still while our doctor performs a thorough examination. After your exam has been completed and your doctor has reviewed all of his findings with you, we will explain how your results may affect you moving forward.
Why Are Spinal & Postural Screenings Important?
Postural screenings are often conducted to help determine if an individual's posture contributes to their symptoms or injury. If so, a physical therapist may provide additional treatment to help improve posture and reduce pain or discomfort.
Why You Need To See A Chiropractor
There are many reasons why you should see a chiropractor, but here's a quick overview of the most important ones:
- Chiropractors are trained to identify imbalances in your musculoskeletal system. These imbalances can cause pain, injury, and other issues in your body.
- Chiropractors use treatments like spinal manipulation, massage, and gentle exercise to help correct these imbalances in your body.
- Chiropractors use non-invasive techniques, which means they won't put you through extreme pain or discomfort when treating you.
