The word “doctor” comes from the Latin word meaning teacher. Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. This gives the doctor a background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition and other details affecting your current health. After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem a thorough orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examination is performed.
At Ackerman Chiropractic Center we use state of the art non-invasive equipment to assess the state of your nervous system function. X-rays may be taken to uncover structural and functional problems associated with the spinal column. These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system problems. Dr. Ackerman will discuss and explain the findings of these examinations and an individualized health care plan may be recommended. Progress is monitored with periodic examinations and follow-up reports. Dr. Ackerman is a strong believer in patient education and will provide many opportunities for each patient to become better informed about chiropractic care.
