Step 1:  You as the Physician only need to rule out any life threatening condition

Inclusion criteria are any patients that have two or more from criteria one, and one from criteria two

Criteria 1 

  • Female over the age of 35
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid Disease
  • Hysterectomy with or without ovaries
  • Smoker
  • Kyphosis/scoliosis
  • Osteoporosis

Criteria 2 

  • Multiple Problems
  • Undiagnosed  Problems
  • Problems for more than one year
  • Frozen/Difficult Shoulder
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Refuses surgery or not a good surgery candidate

Additional criteria to consider that make your patient a good candidate for treatment:

• Multiple problems like headaches with jaw pain, dizziness, shoulder or back pain, leg pain, incontinence

• Unresolved problems with no imaging findings

• Bilateral problems like bilateral carpel tunnel syndrome

• Patients with limited insurance coverage

• Cash paying patients who can afford very few visits 

After we receive referral/order, we will immediately verify patients insurance coverage and communicate to the patient their coverage and out of pocket expense/co-pay they may have. We then see patient within two days. 

What you can expect after making referral and treatment begins

• Consistent and reliable results each and every time you refer

• Consistent communication back to you from the therapist report and patient result form

• Immediate communication if your patient does not follow through  or any case where treatment is un-successful

• Your patient thanking you personally on their next visit for referring them to treatment that really works
