Expect a complete consultation and physical exam
Dr. White will take a detailed health history to understand the factors that are promoting your chronic pain. That consultation includes a history of the present illness, aggravating and mitigating events, pain questionnaires, and much more.
After your consultation, you can expect a thorough and detailed orthopedic and neurologic examination including:
- vital signs
- muscle strength
- range of motion to assess the health of the joint surfaces
- neurologic testing to determine the health of the nerves leading to the painful region
- orthopedic maneuvers to test the integrity of the joints and soft tissues supporting the joints.
- Digital x-rays, taken right on-site to determine that exact nature, location, and extent of your injury.
These things are done in order to get a complete picture of your condition.
