The focus at Hart Chiropractic is to see if the patient has a chiropractic problem in their spine known as vertebral subluxation. This condition occurs when a spinal bone (vertebra) gets jarred out of alignment and disturbs spinal nerve function. This is unhealthy because the nerves control so many functions in the body.
Adjustment of vertebral subluxation helps to improve function of the spine and nerves, which in turn promotes self-healing in the patient.
Dr. Hart checks nerve function to see if the patient needs an adjustment with the use of:
a. Skin temperature analysis (shown in picture)
b. Resting heart rate
c. Heart rate variability
d. Sit-to-stand heart rate change
To check spinal alignment, Dr. Hart uses palpation, leg length comparison, and if indicated, on-site digital x-ray.
Adjustment of the spine is gently given when testing indicates the presence of vertebral subluxation (slight misalignment causing spinal nerve disturbance).
