- A complete case history of the condition is documented during the
consultation which also includes detailed medical information important to
the development of a working diagnosis.
- The thorough examination includes orthopaedic, neurologic and kinesiologic
components. In addition, the chiropractic examination evaluates the
movement of the joints for fixations, hyper-mobility, stiffness, or altered
movement regardless of whether the joint is the site of complaint.
- With this information the doctor of chiropractic formulates the diagnosis
and develops an appropriate treatment plan.
