What to Expect

A Detailed Medical History

We’ll want to know about your overall health, family medical history, and existing conditions – particularly arthritis and osteoporosis.

Imaging Studies

With imaging studies, we can assess the size, shape and position of the joint, which can further help us confirm the diagnosis.

A Conversation About Your Pain

We need to know where your pain occurs, and what movements cause it. Many of our patients find it’s helpful to keep a pain journal during the week leading up to their appointment.

Orthopedic Physical Examination

This exam will allow us to assess your range of motion, reflexes, function and more. We will evaluate your ability to walk, sit, stand, climb stairs, and get out of bed. The results of these various tests will aid us in making a diagnosis and recommending treatments.

Our Goal for Your First Appointment

Our goal during this first visit to Nano Clinic is to get to know you. We want to learn about your pain, your goals for treatment, and the activities that are important to you. All this information – along with the results of your various physical tests and imaging studies – will help us make treatment recommendations that resolve your pain, restore your function, and meet your unique lifestyle needs.
