When we started this podcast, one of the first goals we established was helping people understand the different techniques that you’ll find at our two chiropractic centers. Last week we began with an explanation of the Atlas Orthogonal approach that Dr. Rachel Myers uses at Ammons Chiropractic. Now, it’s time to put Dr. Tri Myers under the microscope to learn more about his technique at Omega Chiropractic.

To do that, we’ll ask all of the common questions that people often have when the first being getting treatment. By going through each of these, we hope that you’ll have a good grasp of the work we both do and how it can provide health benefits for everyone.

So where do we begin? The first step is identifying the areas that are causing you the most pain. There are different ways to do this, but we’ll break down the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), which uses Functional Movement Screens (FMS). This process is utilized by nearly every sports team at all levels, but it’s also a model that anyone can use because it’s based on fundamental movements like a push, pull, squat, etc.

Most of the patients we see at Omega come in because they’re in pain so the SFMA approach is used to see what the root cause of the pain is. Once we identify where the problem is, we can hone in on those areas and begin making adjustments. A lot of what we do is the ‘snap, crackle, and pop’ chiropractic work that you are most familiar with, but we’ll explain how it’s used and what the goals are when we begin adjusting your body.

There’s a lot more detail on the show today, but please reach out if you have any questions for either of us.
