During this time period, Dr. Grace will discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. If you have had prior imaging studies such as an MRI examination, please bring any reports you have that are related to your condition. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Grace to learn more about you, your condition, and your expectations so that we may determine how we can meet your goals. The consultation will include understanding your chief complaints and how it affects your life and a brief review of any prior treatments you have had.
Dr. Grace provides extended consultation services if it is apparent that your particular health care concern warrants further inquiry. Extended consultations may consist of any number of additional components as follows:
Often additional time is needed to complete a thorough review of complex histories and clinical presentations. Valuable information is gathered and this will assist Dr. Grace in determining if in fact you are a candidate for nonsurgical spinal decompression treatment.
After your consultation, Dr. Grace may perform a complete physical examination testing your reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests may be performed as well. These tests provide further information to aid in identifying the actual cause of your problem.
If you have had MRI imaging studies performed and they are available for review, Dr. Grace may read them personally during your visit. These studies are immensely helpful in identifying the actual cause of your condition and are critical in developing an effective treatment plan. Dr. Grace will thoroughly explain the MRI images to you at the time of your consultation so that you fully understand the findings.
REPORT OF FINDINGS:
Once a thorough consultation, history, physical examination and MRI review have been completed, Dr. Grace will discuss all findings and answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to get to the root cause of your complaint and to identify ‘the pain generator’ so an effective treatment plan can be developed that will allow you to “take back your life”.
At this time Dr. Grace will advise whether we can help you and what the recommended treatment protocol would be. If you require care with other providers due to the complexity of your case, he will explain this in detail. Our goal is to provide you excellent care and the natural pain solutions you have been seeking.
