Although imaging is not part of our normal protocol, your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to to get a full evaluation of a patient. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. When it comes to imaging, our clinic follows medicare guidelines and the new evidence based "Choosing Wisely" campaign. Visit www.choosingwisely.org to learn more about this campaign.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Matthew Swager or Dr. Matthew Graham will give you a report of findings to answer the three most popular questions:
- Can you help me?
- What do you recommend that I do to get better?
- How many visits can I expect?
After discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine and reviewing any x-rays or tests, Dr. Matthew Swager or Dr. Matthew Graham will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If Dr. Matthew Swager or Dr. Matthew Graham believes we can help you, we will recommend treatment based off of what research shows as a proper treatment protocol.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physicaltherapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
