Chiropractor uses scans to guide patient treatment

At this clinic, we measure – we dont guess, says Dr. Daniel Beebe, of Beebe Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Tigard.
Prior to treatment, for example, patients receive a thermal scan and an electrical scan (also called surface EMG) to see if muscles are pulling and which way theyre going, says Beebe. The scans can tell us how to proceed with treatment. Later, we can rescan to see if youre improving and if not, make adjustments to the treatment.
Though the equipment for the scans is available to any practitioner, its expensive and it takes experience to use it, says Beebe.
Beebe also does a complete blood-chemistry panel.
Here in the Northwest, we see a lot of low Vitamin D, anemia, liver problems and heart problems, says Beebe. Its just a real good screen for general body conditions.
Patients may come in and say Im really fatigued all the time. Weve even seen cases where they were bleeding internally, but just didnt know. Others will come in with an autoimmune condition, such as Hashimotos Disease.
I test for gluten and other sensitivities. With people who have gluten sensitivities, it can affect a womans thyroid which is a surprise to many.
Women with gluten sensitivities suffer thyroid problems as a ratio of 23 to 1 compared to men.
