Commonly Asked Pain Management Questions to Prepare for Your Visit.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

What do Chiropractic Adjustments do?

Chiropractors are concerned with the placement of the spine and keeping it in proper alignment.  They look for a term known as subluxation, which means misalignment. These misalignments can cause symptoms such as pain and discomfort, or may be asymptomatic. Adjustments gently place the spine back into proper alignment, which enables the body to heal itself from within. 

What can be done after the allergy and inflammation testing?

Allergy and inflammation testing can identify environmental and food allergens, as well as the amount of inflammation that is built up in the body. That inflammation can be a result of toxins in the air or minor reactions from an allergen. After testing for the environment allergies, immunotherapy can be administered. As for food allergies, only an elimination diet can be advised. 

What does a DEXA machine do?

A DEXA machine stands for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry and can test body composition, as well as bone density. A body composition test identifies total mass, lean mass, and fat mass. It also will give information regarding overall weight and where it is distributed throughout the body. A bone density test identifies quality and condition of the bones and possibility or progression of osteoporosis.
