What you might expect is an evaluation which will probably include x-rays and a biomechanical assessment, along with any other tests or evaluations dictated by the doctor's initial examination. Be sure to think over the story of your complaint well before appearing in the doctor's office, and be prepared to give a cogent, unequivocal, chronologic and detail history of your problem, which certainly you know better than anyone else in the world.
