Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to complete. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.
Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
If your specific condition requires any x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you we will send you somewhere to have this performed. We do not take x-rays in our office.
Review of Findings
We will go over the findings from the specific specialized test and tell you what they mean. We will then discuss treatment options for your condition at that time.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination, review of findings, and if any appropriate studies were needed, patients will generally be provided with their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home streches and/or exercises.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit, and get you out of pain as soon as possible.
