As a licensed practitioner, it is the duty of your chiropractor to do the following:
1. Thorough review of your specific problem including relevant past history and overall health
2. Physical tests to help identify the problem. In certain situations, X-ray may be used to determine source of your problem and to investigate for presence of any pathological development
3. Diagnose of the problem. If it is not chiropractor one, suitable referral is done. If it is, a treatment plan is communicated.
Your response to treatment is monitored by your chiropractor who looks for improvement to your specific condition as well as for changes in your overall health.
