What should I expect during my first visit?


Your first visit is for an evaluation and treatment.The evaluation will begin by a discussion of the area of your main complaint as well as any pertinent medical history. It will be followed by a hands on evaluation of your specific area of complaint. This will include location of painful structures, testing of joint motions, muscle strength testing , functional activity assessment--walking, bending, squatting, etc and other appropriate testing as needed based on the findings. The treatment will consist of a variety of modalites to reduce pain, improve strength/motion, and increase functional movement. A customized program will be designed for your specific problem and goals. I offer a variety of modalities, which include but are not limited to, a custom exercise program, dry needling, cupping, decompression therapy, joint and soft tissue mobilization/manipulation, electrical stimulation and other thermal modalities. Be prepared for a 90-120 minute first session depending on the complexity of your problem. A follow on appointment will be scheduled at the end of your first session so bring your calendar, whether is is on your phone or in a book. Each session after the inital session should take 45-60 minutes.
