“When someone takes a fall and ends up with a misalignment of the lower spine, typically he or she will just ignore it after a few days, when the pain has gone away. Then the person finds out years later that the hip has been deteriorating more rapidly than it should have been.”

-Robert Blaich, D.C., of Los Angeles

You will be asked to fill in a form. This should take about 2 – 5mins. Dr Luke will then take a detailed history about your injury or problem. He will then perform a series of neurological and muscular exams, read your x-rays (or send you for them if needed), then create a treatment plan. If x-rays are not needed, you will have your first adjustment. The whole process could take 45 – 60mins for the first visit, and approximately 15 mins for the 2nd, and subsequent visits.

If you were sent for X-rays or MRI’s on the first visit, Dr Luke will go through them with you and perform a report of findings. He will then list out guidelines for managing your pain, and advise you on how best to recover as quickly as possible. Dr Luke will also recommend a treatment and rehab plan, and give you an estimate on your recovery time.

With the report of findings, this visit could take up to 30mins.
