In order to find the correct vertebral segments that are causing the problems, Dr. Knapp will use several ways to accurately find the problem causing vertebrae.

Dr. Knapp uses a very sensitive heat reading instrument called the Nervoscope, which senses the heat produced from swelling and metabolic changes that result from a misaligned vertebrae. This allows the Dr. Knapp to pick up changes in temperature imperceivable to the human hand.

Motion and static palpation are used to detect any loss of motion or swelling as a result of a misaligned vertebrae. At this time looking at your walking gait and posture will also help figure what might be causing any issues.

Next, X-rays will be taken. These x-rays will show the direction of misalignment so Dr. Knapp will know the correct and safest way to adjust that segment.

After this analysis Dr. Knapp will combine all the information gathered in order to be certain that the correct vertebrae will be adjusted. Using a specific and safe adjustment to correct the areas of spinal misalignment and nerve interference you should gradually begin to feel better as you begin the healing process. Everyone heals at different speeds and full resolution of symptoms takes times but Knapp Family Chiropractic is a great place to improve your health naturally and consistently.
