What are the different names for chiropractic testing?

The most common chiropractic treatment is called manual therapy. This may include massage, soft tissue mobilization, or myfascial release. They may perform joint manipulation, strain and counterstrain techniques. Nimmo Receptor-Tonus Technique is a form of muscle testing used to stimulate skeletal muscles and trigger points. You can expect to go through joint manipulation and muscular stimulation.

It is nothing harmful or invasive. But you may feel some discomfort as they try to recreate the discomfort you use to feel. They will be getting you to move, or asking you to resist a movement to test for a muscle or nerve to create the right treatment

You can expect to have several different tests done to look at the alignment of the bones (especially the spine and pelvis), this will include walking, bending all around, flexing the joints in your arms and legs. Reflex tests will be done on your main joints. You are also likely to have x-rays done to further examine the bone alignment.
