The first visit will last about ninety minutes (give yourself 120 minutes in case the appointment runs over).

You will bring in the history form that you have filled out at home (see downloadable form page).  We will go over your medical and pain history and talk about your symptoms.  You will have a chance to ask questions and bring up any concerns you may have.

On the first visit we will do posture, movement and pain assessments.  You may wear underwear or bring a bathing suit or shorts to change into.  We also have cloth gowns to wear. You may also bring someone with you to the appointment and/or into the treatment room if you feel more comfortable doing so.

After the assessments we will begin treatment.   We generally talk during the treatment - there is a lot of information to find out so that I can make suggestions about things you can alter to reduce your pain (such as ergonomic changes, sleep issues, etc).  You are always free and encouraged to ask  questions.
