Screening Exams are Important
The majority of us have undergone some type of screening exam in the last several years. Depending on your age, personal history, and family history, you may have needed to go for an annual mammogram, prostate exam, or a cardiac stress test. If everything is fine, you follow-up next year or in three years in accordance with best practices. If a treatment is required, it is more effective in the early stages of illness. A spinal exam is no different.
Your spinal column provides range of motion in three directions (forward and backward, side-to-side, and rotation) and protects the spinal cord which provides the lifelines from your brain to your entire body. Both of these functions are critical to ensuring continuous health and wellness. Dr. Zurek performs chiropractic spinal screening exams to analyze your spine to identify regions of limited mobility and detect the presence of nerve interference.
The Spinal Cord and its Importance
Pain is your spine’s best way to let you know that there is a problem. If your spine is not freely movable, you will likely begin to experience neck, mid back, or low back pain. Most people search for a traumatic event to explain the pain, but our lifestyles are most often the attributable factor to our disease and pain processes.
Prevention is the Best Strategy
Spinal Compression can be a silent killer that develops over time and can effect your entire nervous system and all of your life processes. A spinal screening performed by Dr. Zurek is the best way of detecting underlying problems. He can design a program that corrects any nerve interference, helping your body perform optimally.
