After reviewing your medical history together, we can perform any orthopedic or neurological tests to help determine a differential diagnosis for your complaint, so that we both know what it is we're working on.
At any time you will be able to ask any questions.
Depending on what our differential diagnosis is we may wish to get further imaging (like x-rays) or discuss a referral to another type of practitioner who would be more suited to working with you on your problem. However if we can help, we will.
Our goal is to be able to provide you with treatment on the first visit, which may include massage and a manual chiro adjustment to restore movement. However if you would prefer low force techniques be used we are also proficient in many low force chiropractic modalities. Because your well being is paramount it's only in the event that it may pose a risk to provide treatment that we would wait until further advice or test results are in.
Often a follow up visit is suggested and depending on the type, length and severity of your problem it may be a handful of visits. However we want you feeling better as soon as possible. We do so by providing additional advice; not limited to rehab exercises, nutrition, workplace setup/movements to alter and sometimes advice to consult a pharmacy.
*Everyone working in our clinic gets adjusted regularly in order to keep our spines healthy, we recommend that our clients do the same once they are feeling better, to help slow the aging process of your spine and have a great, comfortable life. However we are here in any capacity you would like to use our skills. We pride ourselves on being able to provide a no pressure, relaxed environment to our clientele. Rather than employing heavy in your face marketing techniques, it's our preference to give an experience that leaves you wanting to suggest our clinic as an option to your friends and family to assist them with any issues they may have.
