When managing your pain becomes more than you can bear...
...many of us turn to our primary care providers for help; many of those PCPs may then refer you on to a spinal health care specialist or a spinal surgeon to consult over the pain. At Hayes Family Chiropractic, we specialize in treating spines with non-invasive techniques. By promoting conservative care, we take a calculated approach that aims to prevent you from having to go under the knife. This is proven time and again to be the best way to start off when treating conditions of the spine. True, your condition may call for surgery- but starting with conservative care helps us develop a clearer picture of the interplay between your spine, your medical history and your lifestyle.
The road to a proper diagnosis
We need to factor everything in to your diagnosis. At our office in Dunedin, we draw a picture of your medical history and your current back pain; we then move on to physical and neurological examinations, including postural analysis and functional movement screening. If necessary based on the results of your neurological screening, we would then perform diagnostic imaging tests help determine whether your condition is a candidacy for more aggressive treatment. Most people do not require diagnostic imaging and we can proceed with a plan for treatment on the basis of our initial physical exams.
Getting the care you need
By taking a methodical, conservative approach to evaluating and treating the spine, we have helped hundreds of members in our community to return to enjoying their lives free of pain and dysfunction.
