Your first appointment is going to last approximately an hour during which Dr. GJ Bourdon will conduct a detailed health history as well as learn about your current concerns. Dr. GJ Bourdon will then conduct a physical exam which will include neurological testing, ranges of motion, appropriate orthopedic tests, and muscle and joint palpation. In some cases, he may refer you to the public X-ray lab for x-rays.

From all of this information, a diagnosis is determined and Dr. GJ Bourdon will explain what the findings are, what the diagnosis is, and what an appropriate plan of management is to resolve the condition. The risks and benefits will be explained and then treatment will occur.

Most treatments consist of some soft tissue therapy, chiropractic adjustment, and exercises that can be done at home. Clothing is generally left on during treatment.

What's an Adjustment?

Chiropractors are highly skilled in the hands-on art of spinal adjustment. An adjustment involves applying a specific force in a precise direction to a joint that is troublesome (for instance, it may be locked-up or not moving properly). The purpose of the adjustment is to help restore a more normal position or motion, decreasing pain by improving movement and function within that joint. Using this technique, Chiropractors can treat any joint in your body... from your spine all the way out to your fingers and toes. Treatment is always within your comfort level and often can be quite relaxing.
