What to Expect on Your First Visit
You can download your admitting paper work from our website and complete them prior to your appointment. If not, we ask you to please arrive ten to fifteen minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment time, so you have sufficient time to complete the paper work. After doing so you will meet Dr. Frasco, and he will give you a complete tour of our facilities.
The next step is a brief consultation with you, during which the doctor will get in depth information about you and your problem. This will allow him to determine which exams and x-rays need to be performed.
The exam will include a complete postural assessment, range of motion tests, palpation, a computerized thermographic scan of your full spine (Paraspinal Digital Infrared Imaging), appropriate Orthopedic/Neurological tests and any other specific tests that the doctor decides you might need. This will help in properly localizing your problem and making the appropriate diagnosis.
Paraspinal Digital Infrared Imaging (PDII)
Paraspinal digital infrared imaging (PDII) is a non-invasive, painless, computerized, thermographic (heat measuring) instrument. This state-of-the-art technology developed by a former NASA engineer is used to detect irritation to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and is performed by moving a sensitive scanning device along the spine.
The appropriate x-rays will be taken to provide the doctor with valuable information regarding the health of your spine and help rule out more serious conditions that may need other types of treatment. X-rays also help in determining the appropriate treatment plan for your condition.
