What’s a first visit like to see Dr. Suh, a Gonstead Chiropractor?
Dr. Suh goes over a thorough history which determines what potential nerves are not functioning properly and what potential structural issues there are.
Instrumentation shows temperature difference at altered structures therefore isolating potential structural issues that warrant a closer look.
Visualization shows us any abnormal structures and tissue changes, also indicates abnormal biomechanics.
Static Palpation helps reveal swollen tissues that are stabilizing and protecting structural areas as well as muscle spasms.
Motion Palpation evaluates biomechanical function and dysfunction on the structures.
Full Spine Structural Radiography / X-Rays help indicate potential biomechanical dysfunction.
Dr Suh combs through as much objective data and subjective data as possible, see what data correlates, visualize how trauma distorts and changes the biomechanics to the spine and impacts the patient’s nerve system.
As we learn during the consultation, 4 years ago as a pedestrian, she got hit by a car and got thrown quite a distance. Fortunately, xrays and CT / CAT scan shows no fractures or other trauma. However since the accident, she has been experiencing hip pain, groin pain, both knee pain, car motion sickness where she can’t last even one block, dizziness, and TMJ jaw pain. She also shares that they’ve been trying to get pregnant for the past 4-5 months without success.
Thinking process — motion sickness, dizziness, TMJ pain is typically upper cervical / upper part of the neck. Infertility, hip pain, groin pain, both knee pain points to the sacrum.
Visualization, static palpation, and motion palpation confirms there are swelling, muscle spasm, and tenderness at the sacrum and the 1st cervical vertebra (Atlas). While there is biomechanical dysfunction at the middle dorsal vertebra region at the 6th Dorsal, there was no instrumentation reading at that level. Likewise for the 4th Lumbar vertebra. Full spine xray reveals the potential issues are the sacrum and atlas. Also biomechanically how the spine responded to the structural abnormalities, there’s compensating changes to the 4th Lumbar and 6th Dorsal. Correcting either of them at this first visit would be ill-advised.
Collaborating all the data points to correct just the Atlas and Sacrum for this visit which are the major structural abnormalities and leave the compensations alone.
After the corrections, the obstructions to the nerves have been cleared and restored. Spinal biomechanics has also been restored. The results speak for themselves. When the patient reports pregnancy, a followup video will be posted.
