The Assessment process

During the evaluation phase of your assessment, we will spend time diagnosing and understanding your specific condition and symptoms during a one-on-one consultation. A physical exam and a comprehensive health history will be conducted during this phase. One of our healthcare professionals will then perform pain mapping, which utilizes a special device that delivers mild electrical pulses into the body to determine precisely where your pain is originating. While the electrical signals generate a mild tingling, most patients do not experience any discomfort. Once your evaluation and pain mapping is complete, our team will review your recommended treatment options, which may include nerve blocks, medication, physical therapy, or other modalities.
