What you need to know when it comes to pain?
When you visit, of course, you have to describe the pain or symptoms you are having. It will be easy if you will know what to say or how to describe it. The first thing that you have to learn is distinguishing different types of pain.
Intractable pain refers to injuries that require heavy medications and surgery. The chiropractor has nothing to offer you if you have this kind of pain. What they can help you with are other types of pain like chronic, acute, bone pain, and nerve pain.
Acute and chronic pains are easily identifiable. Acute pain refers to the sudden discomfort you feel but it will pass after few minutes. Chronic on the other hand refers to continuing discomfort that perseveres for a long time. As soon as the chiropractors diagnose the pain, they will create a treatment plan that is not limited to spinal adjustment and exercises.
Diagnosing Techniques of Chiropractors
Diagnosing and treatment will vary from one person to another.
From your end, what you should do is describe your situation clearly and accurately. It is important that you tell everything. If it is helpful you can even write all the symptoms so you won’t miss a thing. It will be good if you know the process and how the diagnosis is done so you will have an idea what will follow.
In diagnosing, chiropractors may request lab testing to support their initial diagnosis. They will require as extensive as MRI or as simple as x-ray and urinalysis. Sometimes chiropractors do not need these tests to prove their initial diagnosis. Physical examination will usually reveal everything. In physical examination, the chiropractors will ask you to perform series of exercises so they will know the areas of concern. Some physical examinations include:
• Length measurement: The chiropractors will measure each leg and see if there is a discrepancy. The length of each leg should be equal. Any discrepancy will affect the balance of the pelvis.
• Yeoman’s test: This test will help the chiropractor conclude if your buttocks and lower back show strain or loss of joint mobility.
• Psoas muscle test: This test will help the chiropractor determine if the joints between your vertebrae are strong or painful.
• Straight leg raise: This will gauge the irritation and tension of sciatica as well as the hamstring muscle flexibility.
