Use Your ROFs To Review Subluxation!

As a chiropractor, it’s your role to promote holistic health and wellness in the lives of your patients. Ensuring their understanding of subluxation, including how it interferes with the proper function of the nervous system and overall well-being, is a key to that role. It’s therefore essential that you be able to effectively explain subluxation to your patients. 

Every ROF you deliver should include a review of subluxation, with both a general definition and a specific focus on the patient’s issues. When you emphasize the connection between subluxation and overall health, it  helps your patients comprehend the importance of addressing these concerns.

Be sure to cover the following elements when reviewing subluxations during the ROF:

  • In reviewing the specific subluxations identified during the patient’s examination, be sure to discuss the location, severity, and potential implications of each one.
  • Use visual aids or models to enhance understanding.
  • Emphasize that subluxations can disrupt the communication between the brain and the rest of the body, leading to a variety of health issues.
  • Outline the care plan aimed at addressing subluxations.
  • Explain how chiropractic adjustments can help correct subluxations.
  • Discuss the benefits of subluxation correction. including pain relief, improved range of motion, and enhanced immune system function.
  • Address any concerns or questions your patient may have regarding subluxation and its management.
  • Encourage patient involvement in their own care, and educate patients about self-care practices such as postural awareness, ergonomic adjustments, and exercises to support spinal health.
  • Ensure that your patients thoroughly understand subluxation and their proposed care plan.
  • Ask open-ended questions to encourage thoughtful responses.

Remember, reviewing subluxation in ROFs empowers your patients to actively participate in their journey towards improved health! Give them every chance to engage in their own recovery, and reap the rewards in healthier, happier patients!
