Medical history & Consultation
Dr. Adams will sit down with you and discuss not only your current complaints but get a better idea of your health history. This will include not only specifics about your current complaints but also get a better understanding of any other health issues you might have.

The standard examination will include physical testing of the spine and other affected areas. Initially this will include static palpation of the spine. This is simply the process of feeling (or palpating) your spine in a stationary (or static) position. Dr. Adams will feel for the presence of swelling, tenderness, spinal misalignments and any abnormal texture or spasms in the muscles and other tissues of your back.

Motion Palpation
This process involves feeling the spine while moving and bending it at various angles. This enables Dr. Adams to determine if the individual segments of the spine are moving correctly. Fixations of the spinal segments are limitations in motion and can indicate probable areas of pain, stiffness, nerve irritation and other dysfunction.
Orthopedic and Neurological Testing: This type of testing helps determine where the cause of your problem may originate. Nerves that maybe pinched or irritated along spine can cause symptoms into the extremities. The types of tests included checking reflexes muscle strength testing and various other orthopedic tests to determine the location of the problem.

Spinal X-Rays
Dr. Adams has found over his 34 years in practice that spinal x-rays are not always necessary. Many times, the consultation along with the patient examination results are all that's necessary to determine an accurate diagnosis. However, if Dr. Adams feels that x-rays are necessary, we use an outpatient imaging center to provide those services.

Treatment Recommendations
Once the consultation and examination process is completed, Dr. Adams will discuss your diagnosis with you and provide his best recommendations for treatment and potential outcomes.
