Once the paperwork has been completed, you will have a consultation with the doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options.

History and Examination

In order to determine what your actual problem is, the doctor will ask you various questions related to your condition. Next, a number of specialized tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.

X-ray Studies

Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to either rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you.

Report of Findings

Dr. Dreessen will walk you through the meaning of all the tests, and how chiropractic care plays a role in eliminating the cause of your program. You will be given this video to watch to help understand some of the points he will be presenting to you:
