Movement Assessments in Kelowna
Proper chiropractic treatment begins with thorough movement assessments from our Kelowna chiropractor to identify the specific health and well-being needs of our valued patients. When you come to our practice, we’ll work collaboratively with you to help educate you about your health and assist you in exploring your options towards minimizing pain and optimizing your health. Whether you’ve had a recent injury or you’re managing chronic pain, book your appointment for movement assessments at our Kelowna practice. At Langedyk Chiropractic, we offer the following types of assessments:
Dynamic Traction Movement Assessment
This assessment helps your chiropractor understand your current range of motion. It looks for problems like low back dysfunction, disc herniation, sciatica, stenosis, bulging discs, and similar issues that hinder your movement and cause pain in the neck and back areas. Thorough dynamic traction movement assessments involve comparing the motion between your left and right side with your chiropractor controlling the assessment movements at all times.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment
Selective functional movement assessment (SFMA) evaluates your motor skills and musculoskeletal functions. The assessment can determine the most effective type of treatment to address a specific injury or pain. During the assessment, fundamental movement patterns are tested to see which function is the cause of your discomfort.
Why a Proper Movement Assessment Matters for Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic services can treat distinct areas of the body, addressing chronic pain, whiplash, arthritis, and nerve damage. In order to pinpoint these specific ailments, a proper movement assessment at our Kelowna clinic is important because it can help you better understand the steps in your own treatment. At Langedyk Chiropractic, we believe that educating our patients allows them to contribute to their own recovery and well-being, adjusting their personal lifestyle and diet at home to better complement the treatment they receive at our clinic.
