Like all reliable and trustworthy NUCCA chiropractors in Kelowna, BC, Dr. Hallgrimson utilises certain measures to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment. Once he determines that a patient is showing the physical clinical signs of an upper cervical segmental problem:
1) postural distortion including a ‘functional leg length discrepancy’
2) altered range of motion impairing mobility
3) persistent muscle spasms and pain due to guarded motion
It is then necessary to develop an accurate biomechanical assessment of the head and neck utilizing three specific cervical x-ray views. These unique images are taken in the office by Dr. Hallgrimson utilizing the latest in modern specialized digital equipment. Treatment is a carefully directed light touch (based on factors derived off the patient x-rays) delivered to the patients upper neck. The patient must be placed in appropriate neutral side lying posture for the light touch to be effective.
