Spinal and postural screening is a diagnostic procedure involving the direct analysis of your spine using a S.A.M. (Spinal Analysis Machine). The SAM system allows us to take a snapshot of your spine and relates this snapshot to your posture. This allows our doctors to pin point misalignments, stress points, and other spinal issues that could be the cause of your pain. Once we know the source, treatment can begin.
This screening can also reveal problems with your stance or posture. Back, neck, and body pain, headaches and many other ailments can be caused by subtle yet continuous stress on the spine as a result of bad posture. The basics of good posture are also conducive to a healthy spine.
At Inline Chiropractic, we perform a postural and spinal screen as part of our new patient interview to assist us in diagnosing the source of pain and establish a course of treatment. In many cases, the pain is caused by subluxation as a result of bad posture.
