Specialized functional testing such as postural analysis, joint and muscle testing, as well as on-site X-ray studies,.. may also be utilized to formulate an accurate diagnosis and individual treatment plan. You will then be advised if your condition can be helped by chiropractic, or if it would be more appropriately manage by another health care provider.

The doctor will also give self-treatm ent advice, which may include exercises, nutritional supplements, and the application of ice or heat.
