Whole-body health starts with a healthy spine. Proper spinal alignment and healthy joint motion supported by strong muscles and soft tissues can keep you feeling great and moving freely. But how do you know if your spine is aligned and your body is balanced? Our chiropractors at Adams Health Center in Plano provide spinal and postural screenings to identify misalignments in the spine that need correction, as they may be causing pain, dysfunction, and musculoskeletal imbalances. Contact us today to arrange a postural screening at an event or workplace.
What Exactly Is a Postural Screening?
Postural screenings reveal health insights that allow us to determine an individualized treatment plan for correcting misalignments that may be causing dysfunction. Doing so enables us to thereby improve our patient’s health and overall well-being. Our postural screenings are non-invasive, painless, and while the spinal examination is thorough, it can be completed in just a few minutes. During a spinal screening, our health experts carefully examine the spine, alignment, and posture to check for irregularities and imbalances. They will instruct you on performing simple yet specific movements as they check for bilateral balance of the body. They may apply gentle hands-on palpations to your neck, back, and shoulders to check for areas of tension, tenderness, tightness, and muscles spasms.

- Children and adolescents
- Adults and seniors
