      Anybody do “Intensive Treatment plans?”

      I have a couple of patients who have their adult children coming home for Thanksgiving, and want them to be seen. The kids live in Montana and Idaho, so there doesn’t look like there are a continuance of care options.

      Under normal circumstances I do the consult Monday, the exam as early as Tuesday, and start treatments whenever we can accommodate 2 x week. Being a short week (M-W), anybody have any advice on how to do the best things for everybody here?

      I’m contemplating doing the consult and exam in the beginning of the day, and doing the first treatment later that day. I do have a little information on the kids, and it thus far sounds musculoskeletal.

        I had a patient sent up here by Andrew Wengert (thanks!) this summer, he was down in Florida for work for awhile and really liked the treatment he received there. He drove about 4 hours to get treatment. He was a really cool guy, he understands it.

        Since Andrew already had a full ID work up done, I just repeated a brief update as he had sent the records over already. Thursday AM I treated his low back, he came back later for his neck that same day. Repeated the second day, and he was hinting at what it would take to get a saturday appointment.

        I am not on case fee so that’s different. It was a lot of fun to work with him. He was heading out west this winter and I showed him the map for chicago, iowa and colorado for treatment and he thought that was pretty cool.

        While I am sure there was not complete restoration of his problem. I would have to look back to see what our functional improvements were but it was significant and he still held improvement from Andrews treatment.

        Wasnt that BJ that said “you never know how far reaching….”

        There you have it, a BJ quote on the ID board.

          It feels odd thanking you here, when I saw you in person yesterday, but had not read the forum before.

          Thanks for the insight.
