To Our Patients
We are proud to introduce the Chiropractic Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation Center, which
we feel is a new approach in our community toward the management of painful
neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Our treatment philosophy is based on evidence that
the great majority of painful neuromusculoskeletal conditions are benign and can have
successful outcomes. Therefore, our standardized, symptom and evidenced-based
treatment plans minimize extensive diagnostic tests and unproved treatment modalities,
while improving patient outcomes and controlling costs.
Patients referred to the Chiropractic Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation Center undergo an
extensive initial interview (including mandated insurance carrier forms) and physical
examination. X-rays, MRI's and other diagnostic testing are not ordered on a routine
basis. An individualized treatment plan, based on the patient's complaints, outcome
assessments and physical findings, is instituted with follow-up visits, if necessary.
Periodic re-examinations and serial outcome assessments are performed. Specific
interventions, such as physical modalities and procedures, are ordered when indicated
and are closely monitored. Since the treatment of painful spinal and articulation (joint)
disorders can be complex and does not follow the traditional medical model for
diagnosis and treatment, the Chiropractic Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation Center offers a
multi-disciplinary approach. Through appropriate referrals to other specialists within
your specific insurance plan, which include the combined disciplines of occupational
medicine, physical medicine, neurology, physical therapy and psychology, we are able
to provide a full range of treatment options when necessary.
In this day of managed care, we realize the importance of controlling costs while
offering optimum care. This Center has in place a problem list system and outcome
assessment tools to track not only our patient outcomes, but also the cost of treatment.
Quality care does not have to be expensive. With these goals in mind, we intend to
deliver the best, most cost-effective care for the treatment of painful
neuromusculoskeletal disorders to allow our patients to attain the earliest possible
