The short answer is no, you don’t HAVE to do anything!
Dr. Wu will complete an examination of the movement of your spine and assess your muscles and nerve system. Remember, we said that we do things differently…she is committed to making sure that you understand why your symptoms are presenting and what you can do to prevent re-occurences.
Once you are equipped with this knowledge, you can both decide on a plan of action to help you achieve your ultimate goal, whether it be managing a flare-up or maintaining your investment of good spinal hygiene. She forms her recommendations based on several factors including the severity of your condition, how long you have had symptoms and other factors of your daily life, such as stress, work environment, resting postures, etc. How far you would like to take our recommendations is always up to you.
