Initial Consultation & Exam

After finishing initial patient paperwork, Dr. Kelly will invite you into the consultation room to discuss your health-related concerns and goals. Following your consultation, Dr. Kelly will perform a complete examination including physical, orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests in order to get a complete evaluation of your specific condition.

Plan of Treatment

After discussing your health history and goals, examining your spine and reviewing any diagnostic tests, Dr. Kelly will give you her recommendations for care. Then, gentle manipulation (or adjustments) to spinal or extremity joints are performed. Physio-therapy such as Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Cryotherapy, Kinesio Taping or Intersegmental mobilization may also be used.

In addition, massage may be utilized to stretch tight muscles and personalized postural exercises may be prescribed to retrain poor patterns of body motion.
