Our approach to health care stresses the patient’s overall health. We provide natural, drugless, nonsurgical health treatments, relying on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities. We also recognize that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment, and heredity. We recommend changes in lifestyle that affect those factors. In some situations, we refer patients to consult with other health practitioners.
Like other health practitioners, we follow a standard routine to get information needed to diagnose and treat patients. We take the patient’s medical history; conduct physical, neurological, and orthopedic examinations; and may order laboratory tests. X rays and other diagnostic images are important tools because of our emphasis on the spine and its proper function. We also analyze the patient’s posture and spine using a specialized technique. For patients whose health problems can be traced to the musculoskeletal system, we manually adjust the spinal column.
At Latchman Chiropractic, we use other alternative medicines in our practices, including therapies using water, light, ultrasound, electric and heat. We counsel patients about health concepts such as nutrition, exercise, changes in lifestyle, and stress management.
