What to Expect

On your first visit we will perform a consultation, neurological & orthopedic exam and motion x-rays to find the source of your problem. A relief treatment may be provided on your initial visit depending on your condition. The vertebra move in 14 different directions around 300,000 nerve fibers so we need to be careful in what we do. 

On the second visit Dr. Craig will review your chief complaint, exam findings, x-rays and answer any questions you may have concerning your condition. The report answers the 4 basic questions:

  • What is wrong with me?
  • Can you fix it?
  • How long will it take?
  • How much will it cost?

After all your questions have been answered your treatment will begin.
