Your initial consultation will include a personal and family history, followed by a spinal exam to evaluate muscle tone. Upon completion of the preliminary exam, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential care options.
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 your diagnosis.
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 care plan for you.
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.
