Questions about your first visit to Twin Cities Movement: chiropractic and rehabilitation?

Your first visit to Twin Cities Movement: chiropractic and rehabilitation will start with a comprehensive history and physical exam. We will ask several questions aimed at finding out what the initial cause of your condition may have been, as well as talking about your general health, level of fitness, and potentially nutrition (although we focus first on the biomechanical issue at hand).

Physical Exam

Our physical exam is used to find out what you are able to do without pain, as well as finding out what movements cause your pain. We also perform a functional exam based on common movements that humans develop in our first year, for instance, the way you breathe and squat. We perform this part of the exam because very frequently the site of pain is not the issue that needs focus. If we keep working on the area of pain but the dysfunction causing the pain is still present, the pain will keep coming back.

Report of Findings

Before we start treatment we will explain our findings to you in a simple and straightforward way, and we will talk about what we can do to work with you to resolve your issue.

Treatment

Our treatment consists of active care as often as possible, so wear workout clothes, and even be prepared to possibly do some exercise on a workout mat (sometimes you just need to start on the floor). In addition to whatever exercises are needed, we will draw extensively from our toolbox, using Active Release Technique, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, K-Laser therapy (for an additional fee), and Rocktape, in addition to many other techniques as needed.

Constant Reassessment

At the end of the visit we will re-check some of the movements that we found dysfunctional to ensure that we made some beneficial change in the office, and we will email you videos of the rehab exercises you should perform in the time between visits.

Payment

Because of the length of time spent with each patient, and the many hours of advanced training each of the doctors have received, we have chosen not to participate in network with health insurance companies. We have incredible respect for your bank account, however, and we will do everything in our power to get you out of pain and out of our office as soon as possible. We are happy to provide an itemized statement for you to submit to your insurance company, and we gladly accept HSA and Flex spending accounts
