Get involved in your health!

Day 1

Picture_9.pngThe first thing the doctor will do is ask you about your health complaints. The doctor will also ask about your family history, dietary habits, other care you may have had (osteopathic, medical, surgery, etc.), your job, and other questions designed to help determine the nature of your illness and the best way to go about treating the problem.

Did you know that there could be something that you are doing in your everyday routine that is causing your discomfort?

Examination

After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that you have a better understanding of how our wellness services can help you. If necessary, X-rays or additional testing procedures will be performed. Rest assured that your concerns will be addressed effectively by our team of health professionals.

X-Ray

X-ray is often required to get a complete evaluation of your symptoms. The need for X-ray is considered on a case by case basis. Our equipment is state of the art for imaging.

Report of Findings

The moment you've been waiting for!

The report of findings is the most important part of your visit. Once the examination has been performed and all personal data compiled, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment.

This is your opportunity to learn specifically what is going on with your body. The doctor will provide you a complete, detailed report of their findings. This is where you will be presented with a tailored plan for recovery and learn how long it will take you to feel better and how much it will cost.

When you leave our report you will fully understand your condition and how we are going to address it so well that you will be able to describe it to a friend.

Most of our patients begin to see results from the very first treatment. Our gentle and effective alignment of the body is interactive with the patient, gentle enough for kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for the athlete and senior.
