Your Woudsma Chiropractic Associates provider reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms, including what the pain feels like and if it’s worse during certain activities or at specific times of the day.
They examine your joint for redness, swelling, or bruising and gently press on your skin to identify sensitive areas. Your chiropractor tests your joint’s range of motion and orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays or an ultrasound, to get a closer look at your bones and the surrounding soft tissues.
