Dr. Rebecca Fabry and the staff at The St. Clairsville Chiropractic Clinic would like to welcome you to our website. What should I expect on the first visit? First, the cause of your condition will be determined with a series of complete examinations including, physical, orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests. Dr. Fabry will explain your diagnosis and decide whether or not X-rays are necessary before treatment.
Once that is complete, she will then determine an appropriate treatment plan. This treatment plan will include services ranging from an adjustment to physio-therapy to learning corrective exercises. Physio-therapy includes, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Ultrasound, and the application of a heat pack or cold pack, depending on the patient's condition.
Next, a gentle manipulation, or "adjustment, " to the spinal region and/or extremities will be performed. The technique performed will depend on the patient's history and diagnosis. When an adjustment takes place a "popping" sound will most likely occur.
