At Back to Back Chiropractic Clinic, chiropractors understand the importance of assessing vital signs. Vital signs are measures of various physiological statistics, often taken by health professionals, in order to assess the most basic body functions. Vital signs are an essential part of a case presentation. The act of taking vital signs normally entails recording body temperature, pulse rate (or heart rate), blood pressure, and respiratory rate, but may also include other measurements. We are not implying that we treat abnormal vital signs as well as checking oxygen levels, these are purely for assessment purposes.

 

Blood pressure

 

The blood pressure is recorded as two readings; a high systolic pressure, which is the maximal contraction of the heart, and the lower diastolic or resting pressure. Usually, the blood pressure is given in the left arm unless there is some damage to the arm. The difference between the systolic and diastolic pressure is called the pulse pressure. The measurement of these pressures is now usually done with an aneroid or electronic sphygmomanometer. There is no natural ‘normal’ value for blood pressure, but rather a range of values that on increasing are associated with increased risks. The guideline acceptable reading also takes into account other co-factors for disease. Therefore, elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is variously defined when the systolic number is persistently over 140-160 mmHg. Low blood pressure is hypotension.

 

Pulse

 

pulse1The pulse is the physical expansion of the artery. Its rate is usually measured either at the wrist or the ankle and is recorded as beats per minute. The pulse commonly taken is the radial artery at the wrist. Sometimes the pulse cannot be taken at the wrist and is taken at the opposite of the elbow (brachial artery), at the neck against the carotid artery (carotid pulse), behind the knee (popliteal artery), or in the foot dorsalis pedis or posterior tibial arteries. The pulse rate can also be measured by listening directly to the heartbeat using a stethoscope. The pulse varies with age. A newborn or infant can have a heart rate of about 130-150 beats per minute. A toddler’s heart will beat about 100-120 times per minute, an older child’s heartbeat is around 90-110 beats per minute, adolescents around 80-100 beats per minute, and adults pulse rate is anywhere between 50 and 80 beats per minute.

 

Tendon reflexes

 

The deep tendon reflexes provide information on the integrity of the central and peripheral nervous system. Generally, decreased reflexes indicate a peripheral problem and lively or exaggerated reflexes a central one.

 

Orthopaedic tests

 

Orthopaedic tests are also fundamental to making a specific diagnosis. Orthopaedic testing is needed to assess which joint has dysfunction including spinal vertebra, pelvis joint, hip joint, knee joint, carpel tunnel, ankle joint, shoulder joint, elbow joint, temporal mandibular joint and many more.
