New Patient Special: $119 includes x-ray, exam and adjustment!
Generally you can expect to complete a full medical history questionnaire and "new patient" paperwork. You will then consult with Dr. Pokorny. This consultation is your opportunity to express your health concerns and expectations, and to ask any questions you may have.
Dr. Pokorny will answer your questions and explain his role in your health care and discuss your health prognosis. A physical exam will be performed which may include orthopedic testing, reflex assessments, muscle testing, and a specific Chiropractic evaluation. If you have medical records or x-rays from other physicians, please bring them along.
In some cases x-rays may be necessary to determine an exact diagnosis. Dr. Pokorny will go over the results of the exam and x-rays with you. Then, depending on your situation, the doctor may give you an adjustment and/or begin physical therapy, if needed. Adjustments shouldn't be painful, although you may feel some discomfort until the pressure in the joint is relieved. Depending on your condition, a followup visit may be scheduled.
