What should I expect on my first visit?
Your doctor will review your detailed health history found in your intake paperwork and perform a comprehensive examination of your nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Together with your history and examination, your phyisican will discuss your diagnosis. After your diagnosis your doctor will develop a treatment plan based on your injury. Typical treatment sessions may include stretching, strengthening exercises, home exercises, and adjustments.
Will I need x-rays?
Your exam will determine whether advance imaging is needed. The physicians at Active Care Chiropractic & Rehabilitation work with many local imaging centers so that you can get a same day appointment if necessary.
What is the typical treatment plan time?
Every injury is different and every patient responds differently to treatments. For these reasons, each treatment plan is individualized to each patient and their respective injury or condition. Dr. Karm educates patients about their condition, the causes of the condition, and therefore the ways to correct the issue. With this education, injury prevention in is emphasized to further inhibit the condition from recurring. There is a large emphasis on physical therapy and rehabilitation, which is prescribed to be performed outside of the office. This empowers each patient to have the ability to treat his or her condition and also reduces the number of visits in the office.
