Your First Visit

Initial First Visit Paperwork

Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.

Consultation

Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a private consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems & concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine the cause of your health problem, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests will be performed to determine which areas are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. We may also do computerized Surface EMG and spinal Range of Motion tests to determine the precise cause of your health problem. If MRI or specialized tests are necessary, a prescription will be given to you to a local facility.

Same Day Treatment

Once finished with the examination and all appropriate studies, patients may be provided with physical and/or soft tissue therapies on the same day.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat applications, 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 date & time for your follow-up visit to review your test results. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings both verbally and in a written report. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time. We ask, if possible, for you to return with your spouse so both can learn your test results and can review all financial arrangements and options with the doctor.
