The conditions which the Goldsboro Spine Center address are as varied and as vast as the nervous system itself. We use a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a new patient’s condition and arrive at a course of treatment. The Doctors attempt to find the cause of a health problem rather than simply treat the symptoms. We seek to maximize the natural strengths of the body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. Some examples of conditions seen in our office are: headaches, neck pain, back pain, scoliosis, work/auto/sports injuries, numbness, tingling, and repetitive stress injuries.
The doctor will review your health history and determine if your problem can be helped. If further testing or a referral is needed, we will recommend one for you. Your reflexes may be tested and your ability to turn and bend will be measured. Many other standard orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests may be performed. If necessary, X-ray views may be taken to help understand your problem.
Your doctor will study the results of these examinations and explain what they mean. If other outside examinations have previously been performed, please bring them with you, so that we can explain them to you as well. Then the doctor will recommend a care program designed for your unique health problem. Periodic examinations will monitor your progress.
Chiropractic is a health care approach that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure – mainly the spine – and its functioning. Chiropractors primarily perform spinal adjustments to the spine goal of correcting alignment and problems relating to it supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself and deal with the daily stresses that it encounters. For effective corrective care spinal manipulation will not be enough; the spine must be made ready for changes by warming up and softening tissues around the spine. After this is done spinal manipulation will be far more effective in achieving their intended purpose that then has to be followed by reactive exercises creating a new pattern for the body to hold the spine in correct alignment.
People seek chiropractic care primarily for pain conditions such as backache, lower back pain, neck pain, and headache. Many also seek care for scoliosis with the aim of correcting the spine. Very few side effects have ever been reported and then mostly been temporary muscle soreness related to the treatment making chiropractic a very safe treatment option.
Ongoing research at different universities around the world is looking at effects of chiropractic treatment approaches and validating its claims and results for a wide variety of conditions.
