Expect to spend about an hour at our clinic on your first visit. We'll perform a thorough history and physical examination in order to identify the cause of your concern. On some occasions we may order tests such as X-rays, MRI's, diagnostic ultrasound, or other laboratory tests to help establish a diagnosis. We'll then work with you to develop a treatment plan. We may prescribe massage, physical therapy, or acupuncture in conjunction with your treatment. We also work closely with many other medical providers in the community, such as pediatric chiropractic physicians and both primary care naturopathic and allopathic physicians. We will readily refer to other medical specialists, such as an internist, a physiatrist, an orthopedic surgeon, or neurosurgeon, when chiropractic care will not appropriately address your concern.
Our licensed massage therapists specialize in therapeutic massage care. They have a keen understanding of human anatomy and common musculoskeletal conditions. They work closely with the doctor to assure each individual's specific diagnosis and treatment plan are understood and met. They are well versed in many modalities and customize each massage to each person's unique needs. Common types of massage include: myofacial release, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, sports massage and Thai massage.
We believe in movement as medicine and know the evidence to back it up. We will first perform a full history and physical examination. This will serve to assure it is safe for you to begin, continue, or increase your physical activity program. Exercise prescription and corrective movement patterns should be expected during your course of treatment at our clinic.
