Though we employ many advanced methods for diagnosis, we believe our most effective tool is listening, and that slowing down and considering our patients’ words is an important part of the process – and also creates a personable and comfortable environment in our clinic.
First, you’ll meet with Dr. Sheldon to discuss your health history as well as your current condition and tentative treatment options. Then, to determine the cause of your discomfort, the doctor will perform several specialized tests to identify which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Your situation may require X-ray imaging – performed in our clinic, and usually covered by insurance – to rule out more serious conditions and assist us in creating the most effective treatment plan.
We use a wide range of therapies, custom tailored to your own specific situation and needs, to help relieve your pain and maintain a healthy body.
Usually, your treatment will begin during your first visit, and may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Before you leave, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions for certain therapies that you can do at home to maximize the efficacy of your treatment plan. These procedures will be simple, and typically include ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, and home exercises and/or stretches.
