Next Dr. Adich and you will discuss your health-related history, problems, and concerns. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Adich to learn more about you, the details of your condition, how it is affecting your life, and your expectations from care.
After your consultation Dr. Adich will perform a physical examination which includes testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, and other neurologic, orthopedic, and/or functional tests.
Your specific condition may require referring you to Mt. Baker Imaging for x-rays to help rule out more serious conditions or assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. This is not done routinely and is approached on a case by case basis.
After the examination and testing is performed, Dr. Adich will explain his findings and answer your questions and concerns such as:
After your examination and discussion of wha is wrong and how chiropractic care can help you, Dr. Adich will provide your first treatment. Dr. Adich usually treats patients using the Impulse IQ adjusting instrument which is a state-of-the-art device and approach backed by extensive research. He occasionally may incorporate manual techniques, drop table or Activator Methods if he feels it is more appropriate or requested. He offers specific and effective treatments for disc injuries, peripheral nerve entrapments, headaches, different types of neck and back pain, and other conditions. Chiropractic care restores proper motion of the joints and muscles and optimizes nervous system control. A properly functioning nervous system is essential for a healthy body. Chiropractic adjustments decrease pain and spasm, increase motion and circulation, and promote healing and performance. Chiropractic is also beneficial as wellness care, to improve health and the body's natural ability to resist disease and injury.
Dr. Adich incorporates a variety of specialty techniques with your chiropractic adjustments. Research has shown the most effective treatments for neck and back pain are chiropractic care(spinal manipulation) combined with exercise once movement is improved. Dr. Adich completed a 3-year post-graduate course of study in spinal rehabilitation techniques. When appropriate, he will teach you specific stretches and stabilization exercises to do at home or the gym. He may also make lifestyle improvement suggestions to further the benefits of your care. Our goal is to relieve your pain, restore your function, reduce the liklihood of recurrence, and create a healthier and more active you!
