The bones, nerves and muscles of the body allow us to move. When spinal joints (or other joints of the body) aren’t moving correctly, it’s a sign that something else is going on. We use a helpful diagnostic procedure called Motion Palpation.
Motion Palpation is a fancy way of saying, “feeling with the hands and fingers.” It’s simple. We’ll have you turn and bend and go through the range of motion of various joints of your body, both local and peripheral to your spine. As you do, we’ll apply a light pressure to the joint being tested to feel how things are moving.
Not only will we feel the joint, but we’ll also listen as you move. Long-standing problems can often produce grinding sounds or other noises. These can often give us a clue about what’s going on in the affected joint, directing the care we will be recommending.
Motion palpation is a popular diagnostic technique used by chiropractors since 1981. It quickly gained acceptance and is taught at chiropractic colleges throughout the world.
I have been seeing Dr. Cyr for a couple of years now am very happy with my visits. He has really helped me with my neck pain and overall well-being.

I was having constant headaches all the time. They were beginning to take over my daily life. After seeing Dr. Cyr they have completely gone away!! Highly recommended!!
I left my first apt, feeling so much better than when I came in! I'm 6 months pregnant so I was nervous but Dr. Cyr was great!
Dr. Cyr is an extraordinary chiropractor who provides excellent care to all patients. He has also been voted "Best Of The Best" of Rutland, VT for over 20 years. Many thanks Doctor!
Dr.Cyr has made a huge difference in how I feel... so much better. I am not in pain. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Thank you so much.
Thank you Dr. Cyr! I am smiling again. I am not in pain. I have suffered with chronic and acute sciatic. for awhile now. I have tried physical therapy and while I did get some relief, the pain and discomfort returned. I just recently had four visits with Dr. Cyr and I am thrilled with the results.
