EASY 1,2,3 step on how we work:
Step 1 - Initial Consultation
The purpose of the initial consultation is to determine the root cause of the problem and/or symptoms the patient presenting with. During the consultation a detailed sequence of questions are asked to determine, when and how the initial onset of symptoms occurred, previous injuries & traumas, work habbits & ergonomics, dietary habbits, nutritional regimen, sleep habbits, exercise program, detailed description of symptoms and compliants, and other information are gathered to create an accurate picture of where a patients current health is.
Step 2 - X-ray & Report of Findings
Consultation is followed by a comprehensive and detailed examination of the patient which includes; vital signs, sensory exam, deep tendon reflexes, range of motion in the cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) spine, cervical and lumbar orthopedic tests, neurological testing, grip strength testing, girth measurements, spinal examination and palpatory testing to determine muscular asymmetry, inflammation, and restriction of motion of the spine, and any special testing that can include; thermagraphy, surface EMG, Nerve Conduction Test, and Bone Density Testing.
Step 3 - Treatment
It is my philosophy and the procedure/guideline of my practice to utilize any and all diagnostic tools to determine the root cause of my patients cause of complaints and symptoms. As a result, after performing a detailed consultation and examination, typically four(4) x-rays are taken of the area of complaint or if there are multiple are of complaint x-rays
