HOW WE TREAT
When you come in, we will do a full evaluation, describe to you what is happening and why. Together, we will come up with an individual treatment plan and start working toward that plan during that first visit. The 3 tools we use most are manual therapy, specific movements, or exercise strategies to change the movement patterns that caused the problem; and real education about what you can change to stack the deck in your favor. Occasionally there are findings that require further referral for imaging or consultation with other providers. We will know within the first several visits if that is the path you need to take and work as a team to provide you the best care possible.
We know questions and confusion can come up after your appointments. We will give you our individual email addresses and encourage you to reach out to us between your scheduled appointments to answer any questions and clarify treatment plan directions.
For those experiencing difficulties coming into our office, we offer Telehealth visits. To learn more about this and whether your situation is suitable for a video visit, click the link below.
