It’s no secret that neck and back pain can be debilitating. However, with the help of your Austin, TX chiropractor, Dr. Zeke Harkleroad of Bee Caves Chiropractic & Scoliosis Center, your pain can be resolved. Both back and neck pain can be caused for a variety of reasons, so having a consultation with a professional chiropractor will yield the best results.
What to Expect At Your First Chiropractic Visit in Austin, TX
Dr. Zeke will first discuss your medical history including any medical records that may help him understand your condition. Certain things in your health history can help him to diagnose your problem. Some of these things include (and are not limited to):
- Circulation problems
- Bone disorders such as Osteoporosis
- Injuries (car accidents, fractures, sprains)
- Sleep disorders
After this medical history discussion, a physical exam will ensue. A structural assessment of the spine will first be performed. Other tests that test one’s strength, muscle tone and range of motion will be performed too. A chiropractor will also explore the alignment of the spine from top to bottom to see where pain exists. With all of this information, we can determine a diagnosis for your neck and back pain.
Treating Neck & Back Pain with Dr. Zeke
Every situation is different, so treatment will vary from patient to patient. For some, simple spinal adjustments will help reset proper neurological patterns to provide structural stability and pain relief. For others with pain deriving from an injury, other more complicated treatments including electric stimulation or spinal decompression may be necessary.
Whatever your diagnosis, you can expect a professional response to your pain from your Austin, TX chiropractor, Dr. Zeke. To schedule an exam with him today, call (512) 327-5311.
