Initial visits seek to get a comprehensive snapshot of your health and spinal history. This information will include general medical condition as well as variables that are specific to your individual lifestyle or occupation, etc. Spinal health issues of interest include; the onset and progression of symptoms, the location and severity of the pain and what treatments you may have previously used. This background information lays the foundation for your treatment and is typically followed by a complete physical exam. After the gathering of your history, information and physical, the doctor will often order one or more diagnostic tests to pinpoint the source and cause of your back pain.
