A chiropractic appointment is not like a medical appointment. In order for me to accurately diagnose a patient at my practice, Soft Touch Chiropractic in Porter Ranch, CA. I need to palpate a patient’s muscles, spine and other joints. This is the method by which I analyze pain.
The best thing to wear is loose, comfortable clothing which does not restrict body movement. The shirt or top should be easy to lift for me to examine the back. In my office, I perform physiotherapy which involves the use of gels and balms which may end up on a patient’s clothes in spite of my best efforts to keep the gel contained.
Wearing old t-shirts, sweat pants, loose leggings and the like are best. Clothes like tight jeans, overalls, jumpsuits, suits, or tight tops make it difficult to work with the patient. It’s best to dress in clothes you don’t mind washing and maybe staining.
My goal is to give each patient the best possible experience while at my practice. A patient’s ease of movement helps me do that. For further clarification please call Dr. Masoud 818-831-0100.
