Our Chiropractic office in Wantagh is available for postural and spinal screenings.
One of the most common reasons why a person might go to a chiropractor is for a spinal postural screening. This is an incredibly painless diagnostic tool that helps uncover bigger issues like poor posture and even scoliosis. Learn more about this form of preventative treatment and why it is so important for your overall health.
What are Spinal Postural Screenings?
Spinal postural screenings are essentially what it sounds like. It is a quick and painless process where a trained chiropractor evaluates your body for neuromusculoskeletal problems based on your spine condition and posture. It can even help uncover the issue behind those regular headaches you’ve been having or a sudden stiffness in your neck or back. This type of diagnostic procedure is incredibly common and a great way to ensure you’re getting the right treatment plan for your needs.
What Are the Benefits of a Spinal Postural Screening?
There are multiple benefits to undergoing a spinal postural screening, but the most important is that it allows Dr. Marino to check for potential problems with your spine and posture that could potentially lead to back and neck problems later in life. From there, a thorough treatment plan is created to help address any pain issues you currently have, range of motion problems, or potential mobility issues based on your current health status.
What to Expect During a Spinal Postural Screening
During this routine appointment, Dr. Marino will evaluate your spinal joints and the muscles and tissue surrounding them. Specifically, she will look for issues such as curvature and anything that could potentially affect your overall posture. In some cases, x-rays or other imaging might be used to provide a different angle or better look at your spine. Then you’ll receive recommendations as to what exercises you should be doing at home and what can be done during routine appointments.
