We ask you to arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment so that you can complete your intake paperwork, including a health history. You should also bring a list of your prescription medications to this session.
During your appointment we will take a detailed history of your health concern and assess your functional limitations – that is, what can’t you do now that you want to be able to do? What causes you pain? What makes the pain worse? We will then proceed with assessing your movement, range of motion, strength and complete specific diagnostic tests. Your diagnosis will be explained and the proposed, customized treatment plan discussed with you. This first appointment usually takes 45 minutes.
What should I wear during my appointment?
We recommend you wear or bring comfortable clothing to change into for your initial assessment and subsequent treatment (shorts for ankle or knee assessments – a tank top for neck or shoulder assessments).
