Parkwood Family Chiropractic takes a comprehensive and whole-body approach to helping and caring for patients.
We believe that taking time to truly listen to your concerns and goals is the best place to start.
At your first visit, Dr. Ben will begin by sitting down with you and discussing your health concerns and health goals.
After the doctor has a complete understanding of your situation, he will proceed with a comprehensive chiropractic examination to determine the root cause of your symptoms.
This examination may include orthopedic biomechanical testing, neurological evaluation, nutritional testing, allergy & food sensitivity testing, digestive evaluation, posture analysis, and chiropractic spinal and nervous system examination.
We are happy to let you know that all of the examination procedures are non-invasive, pain free, and always performed with your consent.
Two of the most important tests that we perform in our office include digital x-rays and Surface EMG nervous system scans. Because outward appearance and symptoms rarely tell us the whole story, Parkwood Family Chiropractic utilizes the latest technology to help the doctor to evaluate what he cannot see from the outside.
Many times the use of digital x-ray and Surface EMG scans are what allow the doctor to definitively give a correct diagnosis.
Depending on your specific condition, Dr. Ben may suggest that taking an x-ray will help identify exactly what is causing your symptoms.
We offer on-site x-ray services using the latest technology. Our fully digital system insures the safest and best quality x-rays available today.
Dr. Ben has extensive experience in radiology analysis and diagnosis. His knowledge and understanding of x-ray radiology has helped him discover the real cause of many patients’ toughest conditions.
It is important to know that Dr. Ben takes the use of x-rays very seriously. He will always give his “best recommendation” based on the exam findings, but the use of X-Rays is always up to the patient. Safety and image quality are our top priorities for x-ray procedures.
Surface EMG is a non-invasive computerized “scan” of your spine to determine areas of increased nervous system activity. The test takes less than 5 minutes and shows the doctor very valuable information related to your health. Surface EMG testing is also safe for pregnancy and children.
The Report of Findings is when everything comes together and is many times the most exciting part of the new patient experience!
Here is how it works…
Once the consultation, examination, and diagnostic studies are complete, the doctor will study your exam findings and develop a comprehensive Care Plan to reach your health goals.
A detailed report will be presented to you including all the exam findings and any x-rays that were taken.
In addition to the detailed report, the doctor will answer any questions you may have including:
The Report of Findings will also include a “Care Plan” for going forward.
The Care Plan may include many different types of treatment and therapy based on what will help us achieve the best results for your specific health concern and goals.
The Care Plan will be the doctor’s best recommendations at which point it is always your decision what type of care you would like to proceed with.
At Parkwood Family Chiropractic we believe that the healthier you are, the better you can do the things which matter to you most. We aim to improve quality of life by offering natural, non-drug, non-surgical solutions to many health conditions. Our approach is focused on whole-body wellness, treating the cause rather than simply masking symptoms.
