When you schedule with me, I want your experience to be different than you’ve had at a doctor’s office before. We will talk for quite some time. Not only am I interested in your pain but I also want to know how you sleep and how’s your stress, as those factors greatly contribute to your pain and overall quality of life. Then we will get to assessment and treatment. It is important to me that you understand the biomechanics (movements) and lifestyle factors that are contributing to your ailment and thus can help correct the issue.
We want to get to the cause of what’s going on and most importantly, I want to teach you how you can help fix this! I tell my patients all the time, it’s not healthcare if I am the only person that can fix you and the progress we are making doesn’t go beyond these walls. You must have tools to help aid in the healing process and I will teach you. This is incredibly empowering and also provides hope. I can’t always promise to fix every problem but I can promise that you will know more than when you left and have many resources for self-care.
Our first visit will be an hour. Come in comfortable clothes for treatment and also so I can see you move and teach you the exercises you will need to do at home or work. Any follow-up visits are usually half an hour, although some patients will schedule two back to back sessions for extra work. You are billed by the time spent with me, not the therapy provided. I’ve never been a fan of having to pick and choose therapies based on your pocket book versus what was most necessary and beneficial. We will do a combination of hands on therapies for what is most needed for your specific concern and where you are in the healing process with the time we have.
