The initial visit is designed for Dr. Vazquez to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations to determine how Upper Cervical Care and our truHealth strategy can help you meet your health goals.
Following a brief tour when you first arrive, we require that you complete our New Client Health History Forms. This paperwork provides us with information on your current state of health. Dr. Vazquez will review your paperwork and discuss your health-related history, problems, and concerns.
If you’re ready to take the next step, Dr. Vazquez performs a complete chiropractic evaluation, including infrared thermography readings and neurological, orthopedic, and postural tests, in order to establish a baseline for your current state of health.
Dr. Vazquez will then take specialized X-rays of your upper cervical spine using state-of-the-art, ultra-high-resolution digital radiography equipment.
These x-rays will allow him to determine your unique upper cervical misalignment to develop the most effective specific correction required to balance your upper cervical spine. These X-rays may also alert him of any significant spinal conditions that may require alterations to your treatments.
During the follow-up visit, Dr. Vazquez will review with you your health history and goals as well as the results of your physical evaluation. He will explain to you the significant findings of the x-ray images of your spine and answer any questions you may have. Dr. Vazquez will then propose the best care strategy to address your needs and notify you if your condition requires.
After accepting the care recommendations, you will receive your first upper cervical correction.
This involves the gentle movement of the atlas along its proper path in the direction most suitable for restoring balanced alignment and movement.
You will then rest in the post-correction recovery area for approximately 8 minutes. You’ll sit in a comfortable, zero-gravity chair and listen to a calming audio program designed to balance your brain waves. Resting after upper cervical corrections is critical because it allows your body time to integrate the new changes to your spine.
Following the rest period, Dr. Vazquez will perform a post-correction thermography reading to assess the changes to your nervous system resulting from the correction. When your nervous system is functioning properly, your body heals!
