How Do We Know If Adjustments Actually Work?

For The Specific Chiropractic Center here in Chico, that’s why we use an infrared thermography scanner. What we do is slide this up the back of the patient’s neck, and that tells us how the patient’s nervous system is functioning. This information tells us when our patients need to be adjusted and more importantly, when they don’t need to be adjusted.

If and when a patient needs to be adjusted after they take their nice 20-minute nap in our zero gravity resting chairs, we bring them back in, and we scan them again. That tells us as doctors how the adjustment went and if it’s doing what it’s supposed to.

What this information also tells us is how long our patients are holding their adjustments. If you’d like to know more about how this piece of equipment relates to how someone’s nervous system is functioning, reach out to us. I’m Doctor Jeremy from The Specific Chiropractic Center, and we’d love to explain. Come in for a free consultation to see how people’s nervous systems are functioning.
