Hello. I’m Dr. Matthew Schlagheck from Edgewood Spine.
It’s fine. In this video, we are going to discuss what to expect with the examination. The examination is a simple yet thorough process, and we will make a biomechanical assessment of your entire body, including orthopedic and neurologic testing, to determine the current status of your body.
Questions such as how is the force being distributed through your body? Is it being forced on certain areas? How are those areas related to your current symptoms are crucial to determine how to process in your care. A thorough examination is absolutely necessary to not only help determine the cause of your pain, but the steps that will be necessary to make sure it doesn’t come back. The examination will not be painful and we usually take between 15 and 30 minutes.
I hope this helps with what to expect during the examination. If you’d like to know more, please visit our website at edgewoodspine.com.
