What Happens On My First Visit?
You will meet Lisa on the front desk and be asked to complete a short health history to provide the Doctor with background information to assist in diagnosing and treating your particular problem.
If we determine Chiropractic can help, we will proceed to examination. If not you will be referred to another health care practitioner.
Physical , orthopedic, neurologic and chiropractic tests will be performed to determine the cause of your problem.
Surface EMG & Thermograph Tests
A Surface EMG test measures muscle contraction along the spine. A Thermography test measures temperature (blood flow, inflammation). Both tests are quick, pain free and assist the Doctor in arriving at a diagnosis.
Depending on the nature of the problem that brought you into our office, X-Rays may be taken to assess the structure of the spine and how it is supporting your body. We will look for alignment and degeneration.
After you leave the office, the Doctor will review your history, exam findings, EMG, Thermograph, and X-Rays in order to determine a diagnosis.
On your next visit we will discuss exam findings and explain your EMG, Thermograph and X-Ray results. We will then provide you with a diagnosis and a plan for treatment.
