After your consultation, your exam will consist of thorough neurological, chiropractic, orthopedic, radioliological (if necessary), and most importantly our unique soft tissue exam. This means a complete examination of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. In addition, we perform manual muscle testing to determine strength, gait analysis, evaluate flexibility and assess your postural presentation.
If at any time during your exam or treatment other histories such as 3 day food log and tests such as blood work, MRI, Cat Scan, or consultation with specialists are needed, we can provide you with a referral to quality professionals. In addition, we encourage a team approach through communication with your primary care or referring physician. Our central focus is simply to provide the best possible level of care.
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. There is a link above to download the paperwork and fill it out before your visit which will allow us more time to spend together.
Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain therapeutic exercises and stretches to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions.
