Initial visits last one hour so that we have time to thoroughly assess your complaints and determine the best course of action. Our first step is to take a medical history in which we discuss your complaints and any other associated symptoms or conditions you may be experiencing. We then thoroughly examine the muscles, joints, and nerves in the spine and other regions where you are experiencing pain. This initial evaluation helps us to determine the specific cause of your symptoms, so that we can develop a unique treatment plan tailored to helping you heal as quickly as possible. After discussing this treatment plan and answering any questions you may have, we will begin with treatment.
