This sounds on the surface like an easy question to answer, but in fact it is the most difficult to answer. Simple answer is Doctor’s of Chiropractic are daily helping individuals with tight back muscles. However, the process of evaluating any condition begins with the consultation. When did the problem start? What was the initiating incident that caused the problem? Was there any prior problems with the area of complaint including adjacent areas? In most cases, there are additional questions. Then begins the examination, which includes palpation, range of motion, orthopedic tests, and possible imaging tests. All of these go into determining the diagnosis, need for additional evaluations, need for treatment and establishing a treatment plan. Finally, evaluating effects of the treatments. This is a simplified statement of what need to be done for any condition and then how long it takes to receive results will become apparent.
