Upon entering the office, we have some brief paperwork for you to fill out. The paperwork provides us with information about yourself and your condition.
History and Examination
In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, an examination will be performed to determine which areas are affected and to what extent. This examination includes checking motion, checking posture, a spinal examination, and orthopedic and neurological testing.
Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to assist us in developing the most effective treatment 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.
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.
