Structural vs. Traditional Chiropractor


A traditional chiropractor will usually do consultation and an examination together.  In some cases, they might give you your first adjustments in the first visit. The consult will usually include a case history and an examination to determine the need for chiropractic care. You will then receive your first adjustments.

Chiropractic examinations are usually carried out through light clothing. Chiropractic examination may include:

  • observation (eg. posture, range of motion, and gait).
  • palpation (feeling of joint movement, muscle, and soft tissue tensions).
  • standard orthopedic and neurological tests.
  • any further tests or imaging which may be indicated (eg. x-rays, thermography, sEMG, MRI).


At Revolution Chiropractic, we give you 30 minutes or more to go through your initial consultation. That is complimentary. This consultation will give us a clear picture of your level of health and how we can help you.

We will tell you what is required from you to achieve the results you want. Then you can decide if this is the appropriate plan of action for you.
This way you don’t spend any money on an examination or treatment unless you really want to.

Following a complimentary consultation, you can undergo a Complete Structural Chiropractic Examination. A Chiropractic Doctor will thoroughly perform the exam to identify the nature of your Structural Shift. The exam at Revolution Chiropractic will include:

  • Structural Spinal Analysis using a Spinal Analysis Machine (not just observations).
  • Spinal examination.
  • Examination of any other part of the body that is necessary for your case.
  • Orthopedic, neurological, range of motion, and mobility examinations.
  • Specific Digital Structural Radiographs.

If a Structural shift is detected…

Structural Radiographs (X-rays) help us get a full evaluation of your structure and spinal condition. It also assists us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. In addition, they can help rule out more serious conditions.

The Structural Chiropractic Examination allows us not only to detect Structural Shifts but also to get a better understanding of the underlying cause of your condition. If a Structural Shift has been confirmed, we will schedule a follow-up conference to review the results. Your Chiropractor will discuss the nature of your specific Structural Shift and care options. Your Chiropractor will also give you other necessary recommendations on things such as supplements, exercises and stretches, and so on.
