If the answers on this page do not answer the questions you would like to know, please feels free to call us at 616-956-1112 or email us at at the contact us button below. We're happy to answer any questions you may have.
What to expect on my initial visit?
The initial visit typically lasts 45-60 minutes and entails:
- Integrative Diagnosis ® exam
- Neurological testing
- Range of motion testing
- Orthopedic testing
- Review of past imaging/medical history
- Report of findings
- Treatment plan for your individual condition
Dr. Eric Lambert and/or Maggie Zick, LMT 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 to be reviewed. No treatment is done on the initial examination.
After initial appointment, follow-up visits are 10-15 minutes. The goal of any treatment is to get you back functioning as well as possible without pain and limitation. You may be given specific guidelines that will be expected to follow to ensure the best outcome.
What to Wear
Please come with workout clothing. Treatment is most effective without restricted clothing. For example, if you have a shoulder complaint, please wear a tank top. If you have pain from the lower back or below, wear running shorts.
How do I know if this will be able to help?
If you have any muscle, joint, or nerve problems then you are a good candidate. This is our expertise. If you have also failed other treatments or haven’t reached your maximum level of improvement, then you are also a good candidate. Our providers specialize in 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 highly specialized and unique so all potential new patients have a consultation first to determine if you are in the right place.
Why is muscle adhesion so important?
Muscle adhesion is the most common cause for pain, weakness and decreased flexibility in the human body. It is frequently under diagnosed or completely missed by many practitioners. In many cases it doesn't show up on an X-RAY or MRI so many doctors completely disregard it. When adhesion builds up over time it can lead to more force being put on the tendons, cartilage and ligaments leading to degeneration or tears later on down the road. Adhesion is completely reversible with the expert treatment and can be removed non-invasively with hands or an instrument.
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 providers typically see sustainable functional changes that are measured within 1-3 visits. Most patients begin to feel sustainable improvements in pain within 2-5 visits.
Do you accept my insurance?
Our office is considered an out of network provider for all insurance plans, except Federal Medicare. Unfortunately, insurance companies only care about saving money by denying the care you need. We care about patient’s health and getting them better.
As you know the insurance system makes it hard for patients to obtain the quality care that they deserve and need. They 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 great results! We do accept cash, check, major credit cards, health savings accounts (HSA), and flexible spending accounts (FSA).
