New Patient Consultation
When you visit our office, our receptionist will assist you in completing your initial paperwork. A professional staff member will escort you to the consultation area, where you will meet with our doctors to discuss your health concerns and/or pain symptoms, and determine if further examination or testing is needed.
A careful spinal examination and analysis is performed to detect any structural abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition. You may be tested in several different areas with special emphasis given to any area of concern. Our doctors may also check your eyes, ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs, pulse, respiration rate, cervical and lumbar range of motion, muscle strength. Your exam may also include: x-rays, laboratory analysis and other diagnostic images, orthopedic tests, neurological tests, chiropractic balance tests, and/or a gait analysis.
Depending on your needs, several diagnostic tests are available in our clinic or by referral to another health facility. With every test, a report of patient examination findings is documented through state-of-the-art computer software. With any test, our doctors will discuss your results and care options in person, over the phone, or with your physician.
If your condition requires x-ray clarification, the proper films can be taken, developed and analyzed in our clinic. On an as-needed basis, we may also refer you for extensive pathology and impairment report with an outside medical professional.
Some patients may require an MRI, CT Scan, Labs, or injection, which can be coordinated with one of our trusted network of medical professionals. When such services are deemed necessary our office staff would be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
Individualized Chiropractic Plan
Once you’ve completed the prescribed diagnostic tests, we will schedule an appointment for you to review the findings. With every patient, we create an Individualized Chiropractic Plan based on their specific needs and goals that allows us to track progress and modify treatment to optimize results.
Our doctors are skilled at providing gentle spinal manipulations when needed. Chiropractic adjustments may vary depending on the degree and location of subluxation at your appointment. All adjustments are performed in our private treatment rooms for your comfort.
Myofascial and Neuromuscular Therapy
We have several licensed massage therapists on staff who perform myofascial and neuromuscular therapy for patients who may benefit from them as a part of their treatment when deemed to be medically necessary.
There are several ways to measure bone density, most of which involve the use of radiation. The Sahara ultrasound unit is radiation-free and uses high frequency sound waves that pass through your heel to measure the density of your bones. Your heel is measured due to that particular bone containing a high percentage of the kind of bone that is commonly affected by osteoporosis. The results print out directly following the minute-long test and will be reviewed with you by one of our doctors the same visit.
Spectron IR Breast Cancer Risk Detection
Breast Thermography uses infrared images of the breast to determine the risk of developing breast cancer. Thermography is non-invasive, painless, and does not use radiation or compression to obtain images. The heat that is generated by cells during abnormal growth is measured by the infrared camera. Breast Thermography is one of the best early-detection systems available today!
We proudly offer The Antalgic Trak system and the 3-D Trak System. These machines create traction forces that can decompress the injured disc and are noninvasive, safe and FDA-approved. Both systems have an 85% success rate and have allowed us to treat a wide range of disc-related conditions such as: disc bulges or herniated discs, disc degeneration, sciatica, spinal stenosis / arthritis, spondylolisthesis and facet syndrome.
Oriental or Eastern Medicine
Oriental Medicine is a system of medicine that categorizes body patterns into specific types of diagnoses with corresponding treatment plans. Due to the sheer weight of evidence for healing and pain relief going back 2500 years, Oriental medicine continues to become more prevalent as a clinical approach for treating a variety of conditions. We are pleased to offer nutritional coaching and other services including Thai Massage and Acupuncture.
As one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world, Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific “energy points” on the body by the insertion of small, fine needles. In the last 20 years, acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States as an alternative treatment to relieve pain. Our patients enjoy working with Licensed Acupuncturist Trey Brackman and are raving about the results!!
We have several expert therapists who can provide the ancient method of massage from Thailand that involves a combination of yoga-like stretching, rocking, and acupressure applied to the body.
Our clinic is equipped with Synergy rehab equipment to aid patients in recovering strength and stability in areas where they are weak or have been injured. We offer different stages of rehab ranging from passive resistance exercises to active free weight training. Combining rehabilitation with your individualized chiropractic plan of scheduled adjustments and therapy is imperative in achieving optimal recovery.
Nutritional Counseling and Support
Dunn Chiropractic offers nutritional counseling and nutritional support. As many symptoms and conditions are partially or wholly due to nutritional needs or deficiencies, offering nutritional support is a natural extension of achieving optimal health.
Preventative Maintenance Plans
While insurance carriers may not cover preventative maintenance care, we offer several self-pay package options for patients who have reached a maximum level of improvement and wish to maintain their current level of health. Package options may include: massage, chiropractic care, nutritional support, and/or weight-loss monitoring.
