What To Expect Your First Session

Because we are an integrative clinic and interested in your thorough recovery, much of the work starts before you even set foot in the clinic.

We are a paperless clinic.

All paperwork is completed through a user-friendly, online portal before your first appointment.

Links for your paperwork will be sent directly to your preferred method of contact.

When you arrive at our clinic, you will be personally greeted by your therapist.

Because you took an active role in your care by filling out paperwork ahead of your first visit, we will be able to get more out of this appointment.

The therapist will have already reviewed your paperwork before your appointment, which will help them dial in on their questions and areas of focus, particular to your case.

We recommend coming to each session in clothing that is easy to move in.

Optimal choices would be Shorts and and short sleeves for the fellas, and shorts / a tank top for the ladies. Dressing in layers is the best choice, since this is Michigan, after all.

Your appointment will start with a thorough review of your medical history.

We will then discuss a little more about your reason for visiting and what you are hoping to be able to do with less pain or greater ease.

We will then complete a thorough head-to-toe movement evaluation, posture analysis, and a gait and balance screen.

We will also assess any lifestyle factors that may be related to your pain. These may include anxiety, depression, sleep hygiene, and nutrition.

And most importantly, we will have fun doing it!

By the end of your first appointment, you will leave the clinic with a solid idea of the underlying contributors to pain, a proposed schedule of treatment, and a timeframe of how long it will take. Any educational materials will be delivered to your preferred method of contact.

We strive to keep visits as infrequent and few as possible to achieve your desired results.
