Initial Visit

Upon entering the office, each patient will have some brief paper-work to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition.  Once the initial paper work is complete, every patient will receive a thorough consultation, brief neurologic examination, comprehensive orthopedic and biomechanical examination and x-rays (if indicated).

Once all of the diagnostic information has been obtained and reviewed by the doctors, all possible treatment options will be discussed with the patient.  If the doctor(s) determine that advanced diagnostic procedures and/or co-management with a medical doctor is indicated, the patient will be informed and our office will initiate the referral process.  This includes handling pre-certification with the patient’s insurance carrier (if required).


Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.  Both of our offices utilize the latest in high-frequency x-ray machines.  By utilizing these high frequency machines we are able to minimize the amount of radiation used during radiologic evaluation.

Home Instructions

Prior to leaving, patients will be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be conducted at home. This may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

You will be given a convenient appointment time for your follow-up visit. Generally speaking, patients are seen within 1-2 days and are provided with a complete review of findings. Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed during this time.
