During your first visit, you will be asked to complete paperwork regarding your health history. Next, Dr. Mann will perform a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for chiropractic. If so, Dr. Mann will perform a spinal examination to learn more about you and your condition. From the information collected, she will determine at that time if x-rays are needed.
X-rays are the most reliable tool for identifying spinal conditions. They give the doctor a good 'snap shot' of what is causing your symptoms whether pain, numbness etc... And allow the doctor to find issues and concerns which may have been hidden for years.
Dr. Mann will study your x-ray films while reviewing the notes from your consultation and exam. She will then determine the cause of your symptoms and make a diagnosis. On your second visit, Dr. Mann will explain your x-rays, your diagnosis, how it affects your health, and what her care plan recommendations are for you.
