One of our doctors will carefully examine the area of pain or discomfort in order to diagnose the problem. You can expect that we will try to understand your problem by using our ears and our hands and our minds. By a process we call "finger walking" we can literally map joints that are under stress and tight muscles within your body to develop a plan for healing them. You can also expect that we will look at and consider the function of your entire body as a whole. For example, many headaches come from upper neck problems but the upper neck issue can not be fixed without considering the lower back problem that created the continuing twist in the neck. Just like the Leaning Tower of Pisa; the upper floors look the most out of place yet the fix for the problem lies in the foundation.
