If necessary, x-rays may also be recommended. Utilizing the information from this visit the doctor will create a treatment plan specifically to meet your needs and best serve you.

Each technique will be discussed with you prior to using them, to ensure that you feel confident and comfortable with the treatment being applied to your body.
