At your first visit you will receive an introductory evaluation. This includes a consultation with Dr. Cutting and a comprehensive orthopedic, neurologic, and chiropractic examination. X-ray imaging is not required for care, but if deemed necessary any time throughout the course of treatment, Dr. Cutting will write a referral for any diagnostic imaging such as X-ray or MRI.
Dr. Cutting performs a thorough two-day exam to make sure it is safe to treat you. Therefore your first treatment will typically occur at the second visit. The last few minutes of the initial visit are focused on discussing recommendations for your care plan such as follow-up visits, at-home exercises, stretches, and/or nutrition and supplement recommendations, and taking time of service payments.
