The first physical therapy visit usually takes 1 hour. The initial consultation with our physical therapist tests your range of motion, pain intensity levels with different exercises, and explores a variety of measurements of your area of concern. The therapist will provide patients with a neuromuscular re-education plan, home exercise program, and the knowledge base to continue your regimen even after therapy is over.
Dr. Spurlock is the chiropractor Birmingham, AL, residents trust to provide specific, individualized treatment.
