At your first visit, the doctor will conduct an initial evaluation of your current condition and this may take up to 30-45 minutes. The doctor will speak to you about your condition and then provide you with a detailed explanation of a proposed treatment plan.
Treatments may include but are not limited to hot moist packs, cold packs, electrical stimulation units, ultrasound, cold laser therapy, chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional counseling, stretching and exercise, and rehabilitation.
We will review with you our exam findings, any x-rays, MRIs, or CT-scans you may have bought in before.
And lastly, we will also discuss long term goals that you would like to reach.
If at any time we feel a referral to another health care professional is necessary, we would gladly find the right professional for you.
The following appointments after the initial consultation usually will be 15-20 minutes depending on the treatment plan that was explained to you during the first visit. Every 6-8 weeks, there will be a re-evaluation done to see your prognosis and that usually takes about 10 minutes. At this time, a report of findings will also be explained to you.
Feel free to ask questions at any time during your visits!
