Well, your journey with us will begin with sitting down with our doctors and going through a complete comprehensive health history. We want to know about you. We want to know about your health past, present, and what your goals are for the future. We want to know about your past injuries, car accidents, work injuries, falls, sports injuries, so forth. We wanted to continue that discussion and to diving deep into how your quality of life is affected by arthritic pain. Next, this will transform into a comprehensive physical examination with our doctors will look at where the pain is located, what specific tissues, how is that arthritis changing the motion and joint? What functional deficits do you present within half? Where’s your weakness? We’ll look at orthopedic testing and illogical testing. We’ll look at balance disorders and movement will look at your strain and stability. It all starts with a comprehensive physical examination. Now when it affects the spine, that’s when we kick to the next level.
