Upon arriving at the office for the first time you will need to fill out some basic paperwork. Also, it is very helpful to bring in with you any pertinent medical information that you received from other physicians such as radiology reports/films (X-ray, MRI, CT, etc.) or accident reports (auto cases). The more information that we have on the first visit the more accurately we can help you with your problem. Next, we will begin with your history/interview to establish your complaints and medical history. After the interview is concluded, we will proceed with the exam which may include but not limited to orthopedic testing, neurologic testing, posture analysis, muscle testing and range of motion.
If necessary, we may take x-rays of the area(s) to be treated. This will be done on-site and the x-rays are usually able to be viewed the same day to correlate with the physical exam finding.
