Consultation & Examination

To help determine the best course of treatment for you, we will begin by asking a series of detailed questions regarding your complaints. This will allow us to determine the most suitable course of action for the diagnostic work up for your case. We will then perform a series of Orthopedic and Neurological tests to help determine the exact areas and tissues affected by your condition. A basic physical examination to include height, weight, blood pressure, etc. will also be performed.

Other Diagnostic Tests or Studies

Depending upon the outcome of the above described Examination, other indicated diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRI's, CT scans, Urinalysis, Blood Tests, Nerve Conduction Tests, etc. may be ordered or performed. These will assist us in determining the severity of your condition and aid in either ruling out more serious conditions, our treating you with the most effective treatment for your specific condition, or making the appropriate referral to a specific health care specialist, as the case may be.
