Can you help with my condition?
Since most orthopedic and sports injuries do not require surgery the quick answer would be yes, most likely. Not only can I perform the workup needed for an accurate diagnosis but I can also provide the treatment and rehab. If you are not in the right place, you will be sent immediately to the best provider for your condition.
What is a typical treatment session like?
Treatments are a blend of manual thearpy (hands on treatment to the joints and soft tissues) and progression of exercise plan.
How long will it take to resolve my injury?
I try to get people better in as few visits as possible. Some people just need a visit or two to figure out whats wrong and how to treat it. Others need more guidance and hands on therapy. It really depends on the condition, how long its been going on and so forth. Many overuse soft tissue conditions can be cleared up in 4-6 visits with a compliant patient.
Do you need to take X rays?
Not usually, unless it will change treatment or how we manage your condition, ie referral options. I do order X rays, MRI’s and other diagnostic studies if needed but this is not routine. In the office, I do provide diagnostic ultrasound for specific conditions. This includes plantar fascia pain, some types of tendon pain and some types of shoulder pain.
