You may expect your first visit to take approximately one hour. During that time, Dr. Ehresman will review your case history paperwork you filled out and then ask some questions about your current problem and your current state of health and wellness. He will likely inquire about your dietary intake, your level of physical activity and the quality of your thought processes. Next, Dr. Ehresman will begin his examination which includes a computerized spinal scan, a comprehensive spinal examination and any necessary orthopedic or neurological tests. From the information gleaned from the aforementioned processes, Dr. Ehresman will decide if it is necessary to take spinal x-rays. Spinal x-rays may be needed if you have any signs or symptoms of potentially harmful conditions.
On your next visit Dr. Ehresman will review his findings with you and let you make informed decisions regarding your health and well-being.
