-Questionnaire – This efficient survey is solely to understand the details of your pain better, your goals for treatment, and to aid in avoiding any contraindications to manual adjustments, physical therapy modalities, or exercises that may be given to assist with your treatment.
-Exam- During the exam, Dr. Azmon will evaluate your individual complaints and determine a proper diagnosis, on which the path for treatment is based. Everyone will be considered based on their own personal goals.
-Treatment- The first treatment will immediately follow the exam. It will be similar to future treatments, although it will likely be extremely gentle and calming so as not to aggravate already sensitive tissue. The entirety of the first visit may take up to 45 minutes, therefore please plan accordingly.
-Second visit- On the second visit, Dr. Azmon will review all of the details he has discovered about you and your particular complaint that he studied after your first visit. He will make a specific plan for your condition, age, severity and goals. The details about why you have the pain, where it’s coming from, what to expect with treatment, etc. will be discussed at length during this time. Any questions are also more than welcome. The length of this visit depends on the patient, as some have more questions and concerns than others.
-Follow-up treatments- Most treatments will last between 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the age and the condition of the patient. Every visit the patient is encouraged to give feedback about their condition.
-Exercises- Often times, patients may benefit from strengthening or stretching certain muscle groups directly after an adjustment. Any exercises will be given only after some improvement is seen, and are based upon the individual’s ability to complete them. Usually they will be less than 5 minutes.
*At NO POINT during any visit should you feel uncomfortable to ask a question or provide feedback about your condition. Your problem is as important to us as it is to you, so please allow us to understand it better.
