What you should expect
Your First Visit
At Exodus Health Center our examination procedures are geared toward detection and correction of the “Vertebral Subluxation“. The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. There are a couple of things that you should expect when you have a first visit at our clinic.
Our Examination consists of a thorough spinal and nervous system exam which includes “Palpation”. Palpation essentially is checking your spine by hand. With this exam the doctor can feel areas of your spine that may be involved with subluxations problems. Spinal position, curvatures and muscle tone can also be examined as it relates to possible spinal subluxations.
Your examination will also include a computerized examination called the “Insight Millennium Subluxation Examination.” This examination involves several important components.
The first part of this examination process involves reading spinal heat differences from one level of the spine to another, as well as from one side of the spine to the other. Heat is a by product of circulation, which is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. From this we can see how subluxation may be affecting these functions of your nervous system.
In the second part of this examination the Insight Millennium Subluxation Examination scans the surface of your spinal area for surface electrical impulses, and measures them along your spine. This helps measure the affect of subluxation on the motor nerve system and the affect subluxations may be having on your muscles.
The importance of each of these tests will be explained to you at your Report of Findings. However, it is important to note that this examination helps scientifically understand the subluxation processes going on in your spine. It also gives us a baseline for future tests so we can accurately measure your progress to see how your spine is correcting and your nervous system is functioning. Using the Insight Millennium Subluxation Examination is much more accurate that just depending on “how you feel” on any given day.
Spinal X-rays may taken depending on your age, and situation. There are many reasons why we would not take x-rays on certain patients including pregnancy, most children, recent usable spinal x-rays and some other various situations. Aside from these situations, x-rays are a common part of the examination process when looking for vertebral subluxations. X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time subluxations may have been involved in your spine. Commonly, most patients receive three spinal x-rays at the beginning of care.
Your Second Visit:
The second visit in the office is often the longest visit in our office but also the most important. It is the only appointment in the office that is scheduled at a specific time. At this appointment, we shut down our office so there are no distractions and we can devote our full time to you. Our goal is to answer all of your questions before you ask and educate you on what we do, how we achieve the great results we see, and specifically, how your body works and how maximizing the function of your body maximizes your health.
After this educational period, you are taken individually into a private room to go over the x-rays and care plan that we have laid out specifically for you. This is time where financial arrangements can be made that includes any insurance or outside payment arrangements that you prepared.
