First, your physician will meet with you and carefully listen and document your concerns and symptoms. After your exam and records review, a comprehensive treatment plan will be devised just for you. Each patient is unique, therefore, all spine conditions and back pain are different. You can trust your spine physician to review, study, and research your condition and situation. At the end of your initial visit, if you have all of your testing required, you and your physician together will collaborate on a conservative, researched-based treatment plan.
Bring Past Testing to your Appointment
First, it is extremely important that each patient bring actual copies of all previous testing and reports. Including, their films and/or any diagnostic testing along with the reports for physicians to review. By combining a physical examination, symptoms, and diagnostic imaging, your physician will have a really good perspective of your condition. It’s the final piece of the puzzle to allow your physician to get a complete picture of your anatomy. Utilizing all your testing and reports it will provide a “look into the body” and see your anatomy. Should you need an X-ray, we have a low dose 3-D EOS X-ray machine available at our Dallas and Plano offices.
Treatment plans are devised by collaboration between your physician, you, and your family. It is a team effort to figure out what each patient needs, how to stop the pain, and the optimal way to achieve the best results. Additionally, your physician wants the least-invasive procedure for you. That’s why all treatment plans begin with very conservative treatment measures. They know that most pain can be resolved with a conservative prescription of medicine, injections, and/or exercise. That’s why they spend lots of time reviewing each patient’s test results, to design a treatment plan just for you.
