Please come with workout clothing. Treatment is most effective without restricted clothing. For example, if you have a shoulder complaint, please wear a tank top. If you have pain from the lower back or below, wear running shorts.
The initial visit typically lasts 45-60 minutes and entails:
If you have any muscle, joint, or nerve problems then you are a good candidate. This is our expertise. If other treatments have failed or you haven’t reached your maximum level of improvement, then you are also a good candidate. Our providers specialize in finding and fixing adhesion, which is a difficult problem to find and even more difficult to fix. Integrative Diagnosis ® trained providers can help with this problem as it is not extensively trained in any doctorate education. Our type of care is highly specialized and unique so all potential new patients have a consultation first to determine if you are in the right place.
Muscle Adhesion is the most common cause for pain, weakness and decreased flexibility in the human body affecting muscles, nerves and joints. It is frequently under diagnosed or completely missed by many practitioners. In many cases it doesn't show up on an X-RAY or MRI so many doctors completely disregard it. When adhesion builds up over time it can lead to more force being put on the tendons, cartilage and ligaments leading to degeneration or tears later on down the road. Adhesion is completely reversible with the expert treatment and can be removed non-invasively with hands or an instrument.
On average, a single region of complaint (i.e. shoulder or low back) can reach full resolution or maximum medical improvement in an average of 12 visits. Our providers typically see sustainable functional changes that are measurable within 1-5 visits. Most patients begin to feel sustainable improvements in pain within 4-8 visits.
Our new patient comprehensive exam for one area is $200. The comprehensive exam includes patient history, physical examination, review of medical records, diagnosis, and explanation of your diagnosis to you. The first visit is to gain a complete understanding of your problem and knowing what we can do to help. No treatment is performed on the first visit.
If you are a candidate for care, treatment will begin on the following visit. Follow-up visits are $60. The average number of follow-up visits is 12 to 16, always depending on the examination and complete diagnosis.
Our office is considered an out of network provider for all insurance plans, except Federal Medicare. Unfortunately, insurance companies only care about saving money by denying the care you need. We care about patient’s health and getting them better.
As you know the insurance system makes it hard for patients to obtain the quality care that they deserve and need. They put up arbitrary barriers and ultimately keep doctors from providing excellent care. Our focus is on YOU and making sure you receive the highest quality diagnosis and treatment possible. This yields great results!
We do accept cash, check, major credit cards, health savings accounts (HSA), and flexible spending accounts (FSA).
