Upon entering the office, we have some information for you to fill out. This 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 concerns, as well as potential treatment options.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your specific needs are, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition(s). Next, a musculoskeletal exam will be performed to determine which areas are affected and to what extent.
Your specific condition may require us to order out x-rays and review them to either rule out more serious conditions, or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. However, the Doctor's examination may rule out the immediate need for X-rays if nothing more serious is suspected.
Same Day Treatment
Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, 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 may 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 postures, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit.
