What to expect in a session with our chiropractor in Tampa?



Chiropractic Examination

First, your chiropractor will need to know your current situation and how it came to be. You will also undergo a few examinations. As the starting point of the healing process is your spine and the area surrounding it, these areas will get more attention during the examination. Here are some of the symptoms they'll be looking for:
Tenderness to the touch.
And other medical details.
Here's a look at the whole process that a chiropractic examination may involve:


The patient meets with the chiropractor and provides a brief synopsis of his or her issues and pain. The patient will describe the symptoms, duration, frequency, areas of pain, what makes the pain feel better, and what makes it worse.

Case history.

The chiropractor identifies the areas of the complaint and the nature of the pain by asking questions and learning more about the patient's medical history, including:

  • Family history.
  • Dietary habits.
  • Previous treatments, including chiropractic or any other medical treatment.
  • Occupational history.
  • Any other details related to your current condition.

Physical examination.

This part will vary according to your condition, but it may include any of the following:

  • Walking around the room to give the chiropractor different looks at the position of your muscles and bones.
  • Moving your body into different positions to answer questions like "how does it feel to perform this movement?" or doing things like pushing your chiropractor's hand so he or she can determine if certain muscles are firing.
  • Palpation and observation, from head to toes, scanning the body looking at the symmetry, comparing one side to the other to see if there is any misalignment. Palpation will also help to locate painful areas needing adjustment or any other treatment.

It is also possible that you get other small examinations during treatment. Chiropractors do these to test the results of their last adjustment.

Depending on the results of the above examination, a chiropractor may use additional diagnostic tests, such as:

  • X-rays. Used to locate and have a better look at skeletal alterations.
  • Temperature readings. With the help of a device, chiropractors identify spinal areas containing significant temperature difference, which means it needs chiropractic adjustment.



Chiropractic Treatment Plan

Once the chiropractor establishes the patient's condition, the next step is setting up a chiropractic treatment plan based on the patient’s goals and examination results. It will include massage to relax muscles, chiropractic adjustments, exercise plan as homework to maintain the results from the session, education to support a healthier lifestyle, and any other detail your chiropractor wants to add to improve your treatment.

Chiropractic Adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment mainly comprises the manipulation of the spine and the tissues nearby. But it may also be used on other parts of the body to improve healing, functioning, and mobility. It is a common treatment for neck and back pain, and its application affects the whole body since the spine connects everything.

Chiropractic adjustments are probably patients' preferred part of the session, since they can hear a lot of cracks. The cracking sounds are the result of releasing the gas bubbles accumulated in the surrounding joint tissue. This effect clears pressure in the joint, improving its movement and range of motion.

Chiropractic adjustments can be performed by applying moderate pressure, pulls, bends, and rotatory movements on specific locations of the body, but mainly on the back and the neck.

Other treatments performed by our chiropractor in Tampa

Chiropractic adjustments set chiropractors apart from other doctors. However, chiropractors may use many other procedures as part of the patient's treatment:

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a good way of treating pain and improving tissue health. The tool used in ultrasound therapy produces vibrations which generate a relaxing heat. This improves movement in both blood and lactic fluids, which in turn helps combat pain and disease.

Therapeutic exercises

During or after sessions, patients may receive instructions for exercise routines. These could include stretches, strengthening exercises, balance exercises, position correction exercises, and much more.

Dietary management

Our chiropractors may recommend meals that will help you get all the nutrients your body needs to recover and get back to regular and healthy functioning.

Heat or cold therapy

Chiropractors may use hot or cold packs as part of therapy to help patients manage pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the damaged tissue.

Electrical stimulation therapy

Mainly used for stimulating and improving muscle functioning but also reduces pain and inflammation, and promotes healing.

Cold laser therapy

Light energy from low-level laser therapy may be used to decrease swelling, reduce pain, and improve circulation.

Massage therapy

Massage has many benefits for the body and it goes very well with chiropractic sessions. Chiropractors may use massage to relax muscles or to improve blood and fluid circulation, which promotes tissue healing.


There are many ways to provide traction such as a table with rotors, manual traction, y-strap, and more. But they all focus on the spine and the tissue surrounding it. Traction helps release stress between vertebrae and relax muscles in the back, which is going to translate into improved functioning and healing for the whole body.

Patient education

Our chiropractors may advise patients on lifestyle modifications, like diet and nutrition, self-care, and work and home conditioning for a better rehabilitation process. This may also include instruction on proper postures, gestures, and movements when performing certain tasks, and more.
If you are suffering from chronic pain caused by accident injuries or health conditions, our chiropractors may be just what you need. At Palm Wellness, all our healthcare professionals work together to provide you with the best care so you can have a healthier and happier life.
