During your initial visit, Dr. Hans will conduct a one-on-one health consultation and perform a detailed examination including: orthopedic tests, medical examination, range of motion testing, neurological tests and a trigger point evaluation. After all tests are performed, Dr. Hans will briefly review his findings with you on your next visit discuss in more detail your finding and let you know if further testing will be necessary.

If Dr. Hans determines that additional diagnostic test such as X-Rays, an MRI or any other type of diagnostic testing is necessary then you will be referred to an outside facility.
