After a thorough consultation, you will undergo a complete examination. This will include standard orthopedic, neurological, functional, postural, and physical examinations.

If necessary, the doctor may take x-rays or refer you for additional testing procedures. Nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
An x-ray is sometimes required to get a full evaluation of a patient. The need for x-ray is considered on a case-by-case basis. All x-rays are examined by the doctors and shared with you.
