How Do We Work Together?
Upon your first visit we will go through the following:
Your History and a thorough Assessment
First, we’ll go through the history of your complaint and relevant medical background before going through a physical assessment of various movements and structures to determine the cause of your problem. Time spent here in the assessment stage is time saved in treatment.
If you have any relevant scans, x-rays, MRIs or medical reports, please bring them with you upon your first visit.
Discuss your Condition and our Plan
We like to educate you about your problem as much as possible to help you understand what’s going on with your body and enable you to take an active role in your recovery. Nothing is more frustrating than visiting the doctor and not getting any answers.
From there, we will then devise and implement a specific treatment plan; both what we can do and what you can do yourself to help you get back to pain-free activity in the shortest time possible.
In most cases you’ll receive treatment on the first visit unless referral for further assessment or imaging is required (usually not the case). Treatment will require your practitioner to have access to the area of complaint. For this reason please make sure to come prepared in comfortable loose-fitting attire.
