Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to
fill out. The paperwork provides us with detailed 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.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule
out a more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most
effective treatment plan for you.
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 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 exercises and/or stretches.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up
visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are
provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your
condition will also be discussed during this time.
