How long is the initial exam and what does it involve?
- The initial visit typically lasts 30-45 minutes and entails an Integrative Diagnosis® exam, neurological testing, review of past imaging/medical history, accurate diagnosis, report of findings, and treatment plan. Dr. Lytle will also discuss any other complicating factors that may be present or could potentially become a problem. Please bring any imaging and relevant radiology reports. No treatment is done on the initial examination.
How do I know if the doctors will be able to help?
- If you have any muscle, joint, or nerve problems then you are a good candidate. This is what we do best. If you have also failed other treatments or haven’t reached your maximum level of improvement, then you are also a good candidate. Our doctors focus on finding and fixing adhesion, which is a difficult problem to find and even more difficult to fix. Integrative Diagnosis® trained providers can help with this problem as it is not extensively trained in any doctorate education. Our type of care is unique so all potential new patients will need to come in for a comprehensive consultation exam. The consultation is 15 minutes and the doctors will briefly discuss your case with you to determine if you are in the right place.
Do you take my insurance?
- Our office does not accept any insurance. Insurance companies don’t care if you get better–they only care about saving money. They also put up arbitrary barriers and ultimately keep doctors from providing excellent care. Our focus is on YOU and making sure you receive the highest quality diagnosis and treatment possible. This yields incredible results! We do accept cash, check, and major credit cards.
How long are follow up visits?
- Follow up visits are 10-15 minutes. The goal of any treatment is to get you back to functioning as well as possible without pain and limitation so you will be given specific guidance that you are expected to follow if you want the best resolution to your problem. This is a team approach—not a passive one.
Are there any other treatments that can do the same thing?
- The short answer is not exactly. There are many manual treatments and instrument treatments that seem similar from the patient perspective, but the proof is in the results.
How long does a treatment plan last and when will I get pain relief?
- On average, a single region of complaint (i.e. shoulder or low back) can reach full resolution or maximum medical improvement in an average of 12 visits. Our doctors typically see sustainable functional changes that are measured within 1-2 visits. Most patients begin to feel sustainable improvements in pain within 2-3 visits.
