Spinal & Postural Screenings

The most neglected trait of your spinal health is the correct posture. Improper spinal position can lead pressure on your nerves. This can disturb your center of gravity and shifting your body’s balance, making you more vulnerable in injuring your neck, low back and joints.

Direct examination of spine is by a diagnostic technique which involves S.A.M, which stands for Spinal Analysis Machine. Spinal and postural screening is a diagnostic technique which involves the use of SAM. A snapshot of spine is taken through SAM system which relates this snapshot to patient’s posture.

This allows Dr. Morgan Wood to detect dislocations, stress points, and other spinal issues that could be the cause of pain. Once detection is done treatment begins.

A patient’s position or postural problems can be disclosed with the screening. Many disorders like back, neck, body pain and headache, can be caused by subtle yet continuous stress on the spine as a result of bad posture. The basics of good posture are also favorable to a healthy spine.

At Multicare Chiropractic, we perform a postural and spinal screen as part of our new patient interview to assist us in diagnosing the source of pain and establish a course of treatment. In many cases, the pain is caused by subluxation as a result of bad posture. Posture and spinal screenings can provide vital health information that can lead to improved health and well-being.

Our staff and the patient both can be helped by the posture analysis. Posture analysis will help both in understanding and improving patient’s spinal health. The importance of hale and hearty back and the benefits of good posture can be shown to the patient. The approaches that are used in order to correct the back are also provided.

The relationship between each body part could be understood by attaining a balance between spinal problems and neuromuscular associations. The significance of how chiropractic care can help you achieve the desired balance naturally and efficiently is provided by our staff. Accurate posture will promise you normal ranges of motion, proper flexibility and less pressure on your body.
